Hi All

I read through every thread I can find with the search terms 'Cast' 'Chromecast' ' Google Cast' but cannot confirm for sure if it is possible to cast to a device.

My app plays pack a recorded MP3. Can I cast to a Google Cast device using a library or method for B4A?

This is a feature of the operating system, not any particular app. This is actually the beauty of it, any app can do it :) I have used it (and my customers too) with my own apps.

So from within your app, do you call an intent? How can I trigger it from with my app

As Erel mentioned above you will need a Cast library, but, I'm not sure such library exists.

Using an intent you can go as far as displaying the Connected Devices dashboard, see code below:
B4X:
Private i As Intent

i.Initialize("", "")
i.SetComponent("com.android.settings/.Settings$ConnectedDeviceDashboardActivity")

StartActivity(i)

Not so good. I did a small first version of a wrapper but i failed building an example to use it.
I get not rid about the resources needed. Seems that we need to setup different styles but i´m not so good in this...

You can try it by yourself if you want. I´m stuck at this point
