Just wanted to come back here to ask: has anyone been able to use /e/ to play sound on a ‘Chromecast built-in’ speaker? that’s one of these speakers with the Google casting technology inside. Not talking about a TV or a set-top box with Chromecast here. Wanted to hear from users before trying it out this weekend.
Just tried: I was successful playing music through Chromecast with the DS Audio app on /e/! Good news! However, with the Spotify app, although it lists my speaker, it says ‘Connecting’, and never connects.
If Chromecast wasn’t working at all for me I would suspect a problem of MicroG not supporting Chromecast and just give up. But I made it work with DS Audio! How is that possible?
In this configuration the control functions with DS Audio are very limited. Play, pause, previous, next. I think that’s it. I can’t change the volume, so it’s pretty useless.
