However, if you happen to have a Chromecast ($35.00 at Walmart) or Chromecast Audio plugged into a speaker system, you might want the audio to play through that instead. Of course, you can choose which device you want the music to play on by saying something like, “OK, Google, play Manchester Orchestra on [Chromecast Audio name].”
Doing that once or twice isn’t so bad. But if your collection of Google Home speakers and Chromecasts is growing, you likely have a couple of devices you’d prefer music or video to play on without having to specify each time. Fortunately, you can now change the default device for music playback or pick a default Chromecast for video playback. Here’s how.
