Currently, a user who does not use a Bluetooth device but uses home setup such as Google home must select a song, play the song on the app, and then wait to see the speaker icon to cast to another device/speaker. This interrupts the listening experience as the song will have to play on the phone first, then connect to a device.
As a user, I would like to see the speaker icon at the header of the home screen OR a floating CTA so that I can select the device prior to/independent of playing a track.
Other streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu offer the casting function right away.
