    Hi, I'd like to cast a sound file (from my phone, or elsewhere if better) to Google Home, is this possible? Can't find any suitable options, am I just missing something?

    Can you please try the AutoCast Best Guess action?

    Had a look at it, but I don't really understand how to combine it and cast a sound file from my phone.

    Do you have an example?

    You should simply be able to use the path of the local file in the Best Guess action :) Does that not work?

    Thanks. Are you on the same network as that Google Mini? Does the AutoCast Speak action work?

    Yes, I am on the same network, the Speak Action works, but only thru Google Drive, when I try the Best Guess action the Google Home reacts and plays these tones, but then nothing.

    Ok, that indicates that for some reason the Google Home can't reach your phone through your network. Do you know why that might be?
