    Yesterday I noticed the method I used to cast youtube to a google home is no longer working. On youtube I would use the share action to send it to AutoCast. My google home responds with a noise that its about to start playing something but it never plays the audio. Also from the google home app, I can see it thinks there is media from autocast being played.

    Did google break something?

    I seem to be having the same problem.
    Not sure exactly when it started but it's been a few weeks now.

    Unfortunately Google disabled auto-playing of YouTube videos in their API so unfortunately it won't work anymore :( It's a shame.
