    Hello folks,

    I wonder if there is any freeware app that will stream phone audio (from any app or microphone) to Chromecast audio?

    I found two apps, https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.airaudio and https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.kineticgamestudios.airtunes.android can do the job, but are paid (which is fine with me, if there is no freeware available).

    Hence, checking if there is any freeware. If not, I would consider either of these apps.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Usually Chromecast is installed on Android phone by default. But if some smartphones don't have it, then users need to access Google Cast by themselves.

    I am sorry to disappoint you folks. Google cast does not have ability to catch pass through audio and cast it on selected device. While it can cast without any issue, here the job requires that the app catches audio from another app. For example, Spotify does not allow casting if you are a free member. The above apps I mention will cast your audio even if you are a free member.

    If its still not clear, please try it yourself and see if you can cast from free Spotify account.

    Correct, if the audio is coming out of your phone, that can be cast right to your TV or speaker system, with Google cast...doesn't matter what app is playing the music
