Gapless playback when using Google Cast

Community Member

This applies to all cast enabled devices. I know this has been mentioned elsewhere but I just want to raise it again. Can gapless playback for YouTube Music please be added to cast enabled devices? You can't properly listen to some of the greatest musical works of all time such as Sgt Pepper's, Dark Side of the Moon, etc. From many accounts gapless playback worked with Google Play Music so there doesn't seem to be a technical limitation. Please, please can this be addressed? Music lovers who enjoy the Google ecosystem shouldn't have to compromise on something like this.

Let me know if you have other questions and concerns, otherwise I'll be locking this thread after 24 hrs.




Thanks Jennifer.

I do really love my Chromecast speakers. But I also really love my music. I've invested a lot of money in Google cast and Google cast compatible speakers in my house but I really want gapless playback. It means I'd have to start all over with my sound system which is really not ideal. I know I'm not the only person who would feel like this even though no one has responded in here as there are plenty of comments out on the web about this.

Thanks for sending me the link. I'll use that too.
