Some time ago, Google Chromecast got a new feature that allows anyone to control the same wi-fi connected Chromecast devices. But this mean that anyone can see that you are casting of he will be on the same wi-fi network and the notifications will appear during the time of active use of Google Chrome Cast Setup.
The addition of this feature seemed like a good idea. By this you will be allowed to control media even if the playback has not been started by you. You will get to see the notifications on your device whether you are watching or listening the content and you will end up with multiple notifications related to casted on a busy network. But finally, these notifications have been made optional by the search giant just with a toggle that will turn off all the network notifications for your devices of Google Chromecast or Google Home.
But previously this was not possible. Previously, you can only disable the notifications on the device basis. So, every person on the same network need to go through the Google settings of their device and turn off the notifications. But now there will be a toggle in the Google Home app; according to the support page of Google Chromecast which has now been updated; that will allow the users to disable the notifications for entire the content and that too at the network level. Now onwards, any casting to the device will no longer produce any media notification for any device on the same network. Here’s the way by which you can disable the notifications on your devices or you can also take Chromecast Support:
- Firstly, open the Google Home app on your device.
- At the top right corner of the Home screen, you will find devices option, click on that for checking the available Chromecast devices.
- Now you will need to select the device card of the Chromecast for which you want to stop the notifications.
- At the top right corner of the device card, click on the device card menu.
- Under device card menu, turn off the option of Let others control your casted media.
You can also disable your device from ever getting any cast notification from the other devices on your network that you are using. Neither in the AP team nor in the preview program. You must need some days for the toggle to appear. The reason behind the wait is that the change is expected to be related to the number of Google services which include possible Google Play services.
