Casting From Browser can't find devices

I regularly play audio from music and youtube videos on my google home mini. Suddenly and overnight, my browser is no longer able to detect any devices on my network. It used to see my Roku TV and my speaker and now it just says "no devices found".

My computer is connected to the network via ethernet, while the speaker is on the wi-fi, but if this was an issue, it would've never worked from the beginning right?
I can still connect through the google home app on my phone and can even find and connect to the speaker on the spotify app on my phone too. It's just the web browser that doesn't connect anymore for some reason.

I've restarted both my speaker and my computer, factory reset it, ensured "Connect to Cast devices on all IP addresses" is enabled in ://flags, all to no avail. I don't have a VPN or an active antivirus either.

I'd appreciate any help.

UPDATE: Restarting my modem and router seemed to fix the issue.

I appreciate the quick response.

To answer your question anyways: Yes, it's been on the same account for years, it just stopped detecting a few days ago.

Are you logged into Google in your browser using the same Google Account you are using to log into the Google Home app on your phone?

Hi VishyVashy,

I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble finding your device to cast from your browser. No worries; I'm here to help! Have you tried the recommendation from @Kevin_Cardona? If so, here is some information I will need in order to provide you with the best steps:

 

  • What browser are you using?
  • What device are you trying to cast to?
  • Does casting work when using WiFi?

 

In the meantime, if you have more questions for me, feel free to reply to this post. I'll be happy to assist further.

 

Best regards,
