A few months ago, I started having an issue with YTM casting from my phone. I can cast to one speaker or one Nest Audio Pair. But when I try to cast to a group of speakers, it won't work. It just stalls on the screen. The Nest Hubs all show a remote control icon on them.
A workaround I found was to start casting to one device, go into Google Home app, Media, and then start check marking each speaker I want it to go to. It's a bit of a pain, so I was hoping to find a fix to get me back to controlling everything from the YTM app.
Also, "Long Live Google Play Music!!!"
Thanks for reaching out. I know how challenging it is when you're having issues casting to your speaker group - we'd love to help.
A few questions:
Please try these steps below:
Let me know how it goes.
The problem has existed for at least a few months.
I have a dual band WI-FI access point.
Devices are less than 15 feet from a Wi-Fi access point. Problem still exists when my 4k Chromecast is connected via Ethernet too
I've rebooted the Chromecasts and even factory reset them.
I think the bug exists when a group contains a Chromecast audio and a 4k Chromecast. Everything works for a group with multiple Chromecast audios.
