Using Chromecast with your Bose speaker
After Chromecast built-in is activated on your Bose smart speaker, smart soundbar or amplifier; you can begin streaming music or podcasts via the following steps.
Verify the Chromecast Built-in feature is enabled for the speaker.
In the Bose Music app, check the Chromecast Built-in feature is enabled for the speaker you would like to cast to. For more information, see Enabling or Disabling Chromecast Built-in. If there are multiple speakers in your Bose Music account, the feature would need to be enabled for each speaker. This feature is not available with Bose headphones; It is only available with network-connected speakers compatible with the Bose Music app.
To send audio to your Bose speaker using Chromecast:
- Within a cast-enabled music streaming service (such as YouTube Music Premium, Spotify, Pandora, TuneIn, or iHeartRadio), tap on the Chromecast icon .
If the icon does not appear in the app, be sure your device is on the same network as the speaker being played to. Otherwise, close and re-open the music streaming app.
- In the list of Chromecast-enabled speakers (and speaker groups) found on the network, select the Bose smart speaker or soundbar.
- Locate the music or podcast you'd like to listen to then press Play. Only audio can be cast to Bose speakers; Video content cannot be cast.
