YouTube Music now suggests your favorite speaker for playback

YouTube Music will now try to suggest which of your Cast speakers you want to stream music to. It’s a nice upgrade over the previous approach, where the app would simply list all the Cast devices on your network in alphabetical order. If you’re anything like us, that might mean sifting through a list of half a dozen speakers, even if there’s just one you use regularly.

utilities, Chrome Unboxed has spotted attempting to cast from the YouTube Music app will bring up a new menu, with a “Suggested” device highlighted above the default alphabetical list. Google spokesperson Paul Pennington confirmed the new feature in an email to: The edgeand said suggestions are based on usage, history, and device type.

The feature, which is specific to YouTube Music, has now been rolled out to all users of the app on iOS and Android. Please note that you must be a YouTube Music subscriber to cast music from the app to an external device, unless it’s music you’ve uploaded yourself.
