DLNA Connection for Nest Audio

Community Member

Can Nest audio speaker connect to DLNA server on home network and play music directly from there?

Hello @mbosse318 

It doesn't look like Nest Audio supports DLNA directly, but after a little searching, it appears there are some apps you can install on your phone that may bridge that gap. Plex, AllCast, and Localcast were three I found (caveat: I haven't tried to make any of these work myself).

Thanks for looking into it. I'm trying to avoid having my phone as the player while I listen to music stored on a network drive. I used to have an A/V receiver for this, but trying to get rid of big bulky audio equipment. Was looking for a smart speaker that might be able to be the device to connect to NAS and play music.
