Can't Chromecast from my pixel 5A to Google Max

About a month ago, I began having trouble chromecasting from my pixel 5A Android phone to my Google home Max speaker. I can choose Chromecast, select the speaker destination, hear the connection beep on the speaker but the audio does not move from the phone to the speaker. Instead, when I look at Chromecast in my Pocket cast app, it shows "No media selected". I have tried rebooting, reinstalling apps and resetting the Google Max speaker., None of it has worked. Any ideas on what else I can do?

Hi justkurt,

 

Thanks for reaching out.

 

Sorry to hear about this experience. Can you tell us how far is your phone from your router as well as your Google Home Max? Also, do you get any prompts on the screen of your Pixel phone whenever you try to cast a content to your Home Max?

 

Let's go ahead and try these steps to see if this works.

 

  • Move the phone closer to your Google Home Max
  • Try to cast a content from other music provider
  • Try to cast content from radio, news or podcast

Let us know how it goes.

 

Best,

Princess
