Google has finally brought support for Chromecast devices to the audio switcher on Android 13. The tech giant has enabled support for Chromecast devices while listening to audio on YouTube Music as a native part of the system audio switcher. This is one of the first apps to get support for Chromecast devices in the output switcher, which was introduced two years ago with Android 11.

The new feature allows users to quickly switch audio output without having to dive into their phone's settings. On Pixel 7 phones running the stable Android 13 QPR1 December release, YouTube Music has started showing Chromecast devices in the output switcher. The device list on YouTube Music includes Nest Hubs, Google TV, and a few speaker groups. Google is also highlighting frequently used devices by using a different colour for the device icon.

The addition of Chromecast support to the audio switcher on Android 13 is a welcome move from Google. It allows users to easily switch between audio sources, such as their phone's speakers, a Chromecast device, or a Bluetooth speaker. This makes it much easier for users to quickly switch between audio sources without having to dive into their phone's settings.

Overall, the addition of Chromecast support to the audio switcher on Android 13 is a great move from Google. It makes it much easier for users to switch between audio sources without having to dive into their phone's settings. This is sure to be appreciated by users who frequently switch between audio sources.
