Hey there folks,
Thank you for your replies in this thread.
We frequently receive reports about issues with Chromecast and other Cast devices, but they all seem to be intermittent.
From what we understand, Google is aware of this, but we do not have any other info at the moment.
On our end, we're continuously making improvements and optimizations to the app, including the Connect functionality, so this could improve with time, but at the moment we cannot offer a direct solution.
Acknowledge we understand this can cause frustration and thank for their understanding as well.
