Why have you stopped allowing sign in on the older Chromecast units. I can no longer call out to Google and ask it to play music on my Chromecast without it pausing because it can't sign in.
You have basically made this device useless. If I wanted to control it by using my phone and manually casting I can just cast to the TV directly
Very disappointed as you did the same thing to my chromecast audio, now forcing me to subscribe to YT music to use it at all.
Hey there stemo76,
I'm really sorry that you're disappointed with the inability to sign in on the older Chromecast devices. I know this is a feature I've used in the past as well. If you don't mind, would you be able to submit feedback via Google Home to let Google know that this is something you'd like to see return? Google takes all submitted feedback seriously, and the more feedback they receive regarding a particular feature, the more likely they are to prioritize it.
I look forward to your response, and if you have any other questions or concerns for me, please let me know. Otherwise, I'll go ahead and lock this thread in 24 hours.
Awesome, thank you for doing that! I know this is something I've seen other users request as well, so the more feedback Google receives, the better. I'll go ahead and lock this thread for now. Please feel free to create a new thread if you have any more questions or concerns.
