Whilst a direct integration with Chromecast is not available yet, you can use a workaround for streaming with Chromecast on your Android device and on the Primephonic web-player.
- Streaming with Chromecast on my Android device:
Step 1: Download the Quick Settings app
First, go to the Google Play store and search for the app Quick Settings. Once you have located this app, proceed to install and open this app. This app is a useful tool to manage and personalise your Android quick settings and in this case, enable you to stream from Primephonic to your Chromecast connected device.
Step 2: Enable the Cast tile
In the Quick Settings app menu, find and select the option Multimedia. Once you are on the multimedia page, tap on the Cast option, and select the option Enable tile.
Step 3: Add the Cast Tile to Your Quick Settings Menu
Now when you open your Quick Settings menu by swiping down from the top of any screen, you will not see the tile yet, as you need to add it first. Please note that this step may vary slightly depending on your Android device and Android version.
To add the Cast tile to your Quick Settings, swipe down twice from the top of any screen to fully expand your Quick Settings menu. From here, look for a three-dot menu button, a pencil icon, or an Edit button. It may be in the top-right next to the gear icon or towards the bottom-right. Once you've found this button, tap it to open edit mode.
From here, you will see your active Quick Settings tiles at the top with a list of inactive icons beneath them. You may have to scroll down a bit, but find the new Cast tile in the lower area, which looks like a TV with the Wi-Fi logo in one corner. Once you've found the tile, long-press it, then drag it up to the top portion of this menu where your active Quick Settings tiles were. From there, tap Done or Save, then you will have Google Cast tile in your Quick Settings menu.
Step 4: Connect to your Chromecast device
Select the Quick Settings Cast tile. This will start a search for all available devices. Locate your Chromecast device and proceed to connecting to your device. Once you see the Chromecast icon appear in your status bar, you are ready to stream!
Step 5: Enjoy Primephonic on your Chromecast connected speakers
Go to the Primephonic app, select the work of your choice and press play. This will automatically establish the connection to your Chromecast device and enable you to listen to the work of your choice on your Chromecast connected speakers.
