Thanks

Re: Chromecast

@Screendoor  same concept applies.  Cast first then play.  You could even have a 4th device should you so choose.  The Now service allows you to play out to 2 devices at the same time.  Hence why I mentioned using 2 devices.

If the three Chromecasts are linked to the same username account, then the answer would be yes.

Re: Chromecast

Thanks - seems a bit harsh as can only use one at a time for the Now stream, irrespective of the fact that Chromecast is not really a stand alone device

Re: Chromecast

@Screendoor if you select cast from your phone app before playing content only the Chromecast counts as a device. This would enable you to use two Chromecasts at the same time.

Re: Chromecast

Thanks

 

Am not trying to use two at the same time, just to be able to choose from the 3 at any time  ?
