Future guest mode request

ChrisAhlund

Hi Google! I have a future request for you. When we have guests over they can't find and cast to any of our speakers because they are on our guest wifi and the speakers are on the main wifi. However, it would be nice if you could toggle "guest mode on" for a specific speaker (like you can on a Chromecast) so they can cast music only to that specific speaker without logging in the the main wifi. I know that they could do it by voice but that often become a disaster with too many people involved screaming instructions to the speaker...

Nest speakers and displays do have a guest mode, but it's to protect your privacy when guests are using them rather than to enable them to cast content to them. 

Control your privacy on your shared devices with Guest Mode - Google Nest Help

This is mostly a user to user community, therefore if this is important to you, I’d encourage you to also send this feedback directly to Google. You will not receive a response, unless Google need more details from you, however the team are still reading the feedback.
