  • Right now, it's not.

    Chromecast (or the Google Cast protocol respectively) isn't supported yet.

    Google Cast has an open API and a SDK available. As far as I can tell, I have seen iOS / Android / Chrome support only so far (take a look here: https://developers.google.com/cast/docs/developers) . However, in theory it should be possible to make use of the API. Let's see.

    I would totally love it.

    • milo Thanks for having submitted this idea. When an idea is planed to be realized it will be marked as PLANNED. For most of the ideas there is also a fair chance that someone among the community will work on this and in both cases we will certainly post that info right into the particular thread. For the brain to chrome cast streaming idea realistically it's going to take a while until the idea will be reviewed. Patrick will follow up here once we have news. Thanks

    • Joseph Schwartz Can you describe what you see the remote doing.

      Generally when you are casting, you would use a phone or tablet to find the material you want to cast and then sending it to the Chromecast, where would the Neeo fit into this ?

  • We could e.g. define a fixed link to a spotify playlist and define a Chromecast device/grouo within the NEEO App.

    When pressing the assigned button the playlist would be casted to the defined device and we could see the current song with cover and play/pause commands etc. on the remote.

  • I see a few possibilities:

    - My dream would be a native Spotify integration ( https://planet.neeo.com/t/q5fh6s/native-spotify-control ) with the ability to cast the music to a Chromecast. This would of course also be handy for other integrated music providers (Google Music, Deezer, you name it).

    With a perfect implementation NEEO would power on the relevant audio devices, select the Chromecast input, launch Spotify on the remote and select audio casting to the chosen Chromecasts all with a single button press. But maybe I'm dreaming a bit too much. ;-)

    - Android phones furthermore show the currently streaming devices in your home and allow you to pause, skip, end streaming etc. That would be amazing for NEEO as well.

    I can think of more... ;-)

  • I agree. Part of the reason I purchased the NEEO remote was to use it as my smart home controller. Right now, it does not integrate well with Spotify/chromecast.  I have my whole house audio via chromecast audio and control it with Spotify/Pandora. I was picturing grabbing this remote and being able to turn on my streaming music and set the lights to a scene, which most home automation devices can do.  I am hoping the NEEO becomes more than just a glorified remote control.

    • milo Looking at the backlog and knowing what's being worked on right now honestly I don't see this being implemented by the devs shortly. I can well imagine that we something coming from the dev community though. I will certainly post it in here if I hear or see anything. Thanks!
