I recently bought a Chromecast Audio. Really a nice solution to revive 'old' speakers by adding wifi playback.
However, I do have one problem - the Chromecast audio is not visible in the 'connect' tab of the Mac desktop client. The only way I can control playback via Mac is if I first start playback on my iPhone and select the Chromecast. After I do this, the player shows up just fine on my Mac. Unfortunately, the chromecast disappears from the conenct tab on my Mac as soon as I stop music playback, and the only way to reselect the Chromecast is by the Spotify app on my iPhone.
Is there any way to resolve this issue?
- the Chromecast is properly set up
- all devices are connected to the same wifi network
Thanks for reading,
