Not working for me. Tried a couple of phones. An older Motorola everything seems to setup fine. Finds my Google Home device. But Speak command never sends anything to the device. Tried another, phone Galaxy S5, crashes when trying to find devices "Unfortunately AutoCast has stopped" Would like it to work and paid for it but so far no go.
After buying the unlock app for AutoVoice (beta, to use with Google Home) and AutoVera, then AutoTools, I realized that I was hooked on the auto apps, so I subscribed to AutoApps when I was about to purchase AutoCast unlock as well. My wife has been bugging me to be able to set a timer to shut down Google Home when we go to bed. If I were casting from an app, that would be trivial (for most casting apps), but we're typically listening to news by saying "Hey Google, News". No timer available. Enter AutoCast. I have a simple AutoVoice activated Tasker task that waits a certain amount of minutes, then uses AutoCast to stop casting. So simple, and works beautifully. I'm sure there are many more sophisticated uses, but when something solves a real problem so easily, it's great for that alone.
Dev has good ideas, but never seems to keep his apps working long. Maybe he has ADD, because he's always starting new projects, when more than half of his current apps fail to work properly. Numerous comments to reviews say "try the beta", well we paid for this full version, so put the beta here instead of the broken version, if it's so great.
Awesome Tasker add on! So much customizable options to cast exactly what u need to, how u want to...can also use it to cast to Google Home!
For some reason it keeps casting to my TV through my Nvidia Shield TV. Sometimes it works and sometimes not. And yes.. I did choose the Google home, through the autocast. And how long does it take for the beta to come through?
Amazing, must have for anyone using Tasker and a chromecast device.
