To any of the Geeks: Can Homey output to Chromecast Audio?

To any of the geeks who own a Chromecast Audio:
- How about the 'Audio' edition of Chromecast (http://www.google.com/intl/nl_nl/chromecast/speakers/)?
- Will Homey be able to output his audio to it?
- Does the current Chromecast app (https://apps.athom.com./app/com.google.chromecast) work with Chromecast Audio?

    Cool..  Is it also possible to use multiple chromecast devices? I have 3 (a chromecast 1 , a chromecast 2 and a chromecast audio)

    In homey you can add all devices seperatly and in flows you can then apply actions on a specific device.

    This shouldnt be different for the chromecast :smile:

    Homey app currently uses DefaultMediaReceiver which should also support ChromeCast 2. Haven't test it though. Not sure about audio version.
    Maybe someone with v2/audio could test chromecast+youtube apps for video/audio playback?

    Did a quick test and the app finds the Cast2 and audio and plays sound / stream

    @gijsr this is a thread from 2 years old. What doesn't work anymore? what are you sending to the chromecasts, radio or google music, soundcloud?
