1. Casting Music
Any available Google Cast devices – OR – other shared Android devices will automatically be discovered when available on your local network. Simply click the cast icon when available and begin casting your music. When casting to a shared Android device, you’ll also have access to the music that exists on that shared device. Browse, search, and play music that exists on either device; view and change the play queue, control the volume, seek through a track, set shuffle & repeat options, etc.
2. Sharing a Device
This is a great solution for those that regularly dock their phone to a stereo system. By sharing a device, it will become discoverable to others connected to your WiFi network so that the music can be controlled from a separate Android device. Great solution for an old phone that is just sitting around or has become a kid’s toy; use Music Cast to WiFi-enable your stereo system without having to buy new equipment. NOTE: Your WiFi network must support multicast broadcast and cross device connectivity when sharing.
• Play Queue – To view the play queue, drag the active song shown at the bottom of the screen to the top of the screen and the play queue will be presented.
• Volume Control – Use your phone/tablet volume keys. If you’re connected to a remote device you’ll be controlling the volume of the shared device; if not connected, you’ll be adjusting the local volume. As of Android 5.0, you can control the volume of the connected/remote device from any screen (including the lock screen). Prior to 5.0, the volume of a remote device can only be controlled while you have the Dock & Share app open.
• Max Volume Control – When docking a phone to your stereo system, set the stereo to the highest volume you want to allow. You’ll be able to take the volume to mute through this application, but no louder than the volume set on the stereo system
• Shared Device – When possible, keep the shared device that is docked to your stereo plugged in to conserve battery strength. In addition, consider turning on the setting to keep the screen on while the device is being shared; this greatly improves WiFi responsiveness on some devices.
You’ll have the ability to stream up to 10 songs to a cast device as part of the trial. Once you've reached that limit, you’ll have the option of upgrading to premium which allows you to stream an unlimited number of songs. NOTE: There is no limitation/premium version requirement when casting to a Google Cast device at this point.
