When I'm listening to music in my spotify library and try to put on a song that was originally a local file Chromecast disconnects and I can't play it. I went through a lot of trouble to hook up my Chromecast for music to get better audio quality through my speakers SPECIFICALLY so I could bump my new Dr. Dre CD, which is not available on spotify. Very dissapointed that I cant and confused. The files are in .mp3 format as ripped by WMP.
Device is LG G5 fully updated. Chromecast on the same 5G wireless network.
After some exhaustive research, we can confirm that it's not possible to cast local files to a Chromecast. However, we'll make sure to let the right team know it's something you'd like to see in the future.
