My Chromecast has no issues connecting to my Wifi, but when casting something, anything, in any app, it only works the "first time". If trying to switch to another app or even sometimes, another show within the same app, the cast symbol disappears.
It's the same regardless of casting from Googles own apps, i.e. Youtube or Netflix/Disney+/HBO Max.
Funnily enough, when telling my Nest Mini to cast something, it always works. BUT, I can't cast from HBO Max (yet) according to my Assistant.
The only way to get the cast symbol to reappear in any app, is to unplug the power cord and then plugging it back in. (Hardware reset)
The issue started occuring just a month or two ago, but is now consistent.
