Chrome on my Windows 10 laptop no longer sees any of my Chromecast audio devices (there are 5). My Windows 11 and my Pixel both see all of them. This suddenly started last week. Have restarted the laptop, all of the chrome casts, the modem and the router with no effect. What's happened?
Thanks for reaching out. Let's sort this out.
Quick questions: is the Google Chrome browser version updated? Has there been any changes in their network?
Give these steps a try:
Sort of / not really. That machine died so i got a new one and have an entirely new problem. While i can see and cast to all my devices (Chromecast Audios) now i get very broken and choppy sound if im doing anything else on the computer (checking email, saving a document, etc.)
Any advice for this?
I changed the connection to my router from 2.4g to 5g and that helps tremendously. But not completly. It seems maybe there is also a problem with my internet connection sporadically dropping its speed, which then chops up the cast. But it is working almost as expected now. Tho I haven't tried it on the other end of the house where the 5g connection is very week.
