[Connect] Show Chromecast on Desktop's Device List

The idea is simple. Why create new features and options for connecting to a new device when its already developed?

Spotify can currently change the device playing music within a LAN in a way that is so seamless I jumped the first time when there were no delay. Why not use this already impressively implemented feature for chromecast? If chromecast was available as a device then it would make it a lot easier for us to use on the computer too, which is the main music player when anyone's home.

 

My guess is that a chromecast can't truly act as a device, but there should be a way to do this through some back-end trickery. Especially if there are unlicensed 3rd party programs that can cast (popcorntime for example).

Hey folks,

 

Thanks for your feedback and suggestions on this one!

 

We're pleased to confirm that this feature should now be available to all Desktop users, as pointed out by @MattSuda here.

I still have a problem only seeing displays (Nest Hub, "normal CC") sometimes, and sometimes both displays and Chromecast audios/Google Home Minis which is quite annoying. A function should be correctly implemented after such a long time.
