    I have Tasker and Autocast running on my phone. My goal is to run it in an Android virtual machine on my home server, so my phone doesnt need to be on/running/present to do what I want to do.

    I'm running into a problem similar to this guy: https://forum.joaoapps.com/index.php?threads/autocast-doesnt-work-on-my-android-box.27853/

    When I run an Autocast speak, it sits and times out.

    Oddly, When I configure an Autocast speak action on the VM, the language option is blank. That's probably a clue that something that Autocast needs to run is missing. I have Google Play services, and from the VM I *can* open up Play Music and cast music to the devices in the home. So at least the basic functionality of casting is working from the VM.

    Any ideas or clues on what to look for would be most appreciative.

    Hi. Maybe you can use the Wavenet alternative? :) The normal say commands depend on certain APIs to be present on the device whereas the Wavenet don't: they just need an internet connection. Would that work for you?
