    Hello,

    I am trying to cast the same MP3 to two Google Homes from a single Task in Tasker. I've tried two methods, neither of which work. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    1. Tried casting to a Group consisting of the two Homes - The cast plays on only one Home--and not always the same one. I'm not sure, but it seems to be playing on "first available" rather than a specific Home.

    2. Tried casting in two separate actions, one for each Home - The behavior is exactly as above.

    Thanks,
    Ron

    Hi. Unfortunately casting to multiple devices is not supported yet, sorry. I need to add this functionality to the app!

    Thanks. Just to be clear, does that include casting to an audio group?

    I was wondering about that. I have a profile to speak when an sensor is tripped via Autovera. The profile is ok for the first Google Home but won't announce on the second; not simultaneously. In the task, I set it to disconnect first Google Home, waiting, then speak for the second one. What am I doing wrong?
