Hello,

 

Is it possible, with Sonos Beam and a ChromeCast v3, to connect the Chromecast with the sound bar to get the audio output on the sound bar?
Ex: Youtube on the chromecast, and the sound on the Beam bar (without the source (e.g. telephone) transmitting the sound to the bar) ?

 

Thanks !

@auburdav Thank you for bring your question to us here and welcome to the Sonos Community. You would not be able to use your ChromeCast to the Beam as we have no USB port for it to connect into. Unless your device can connect through a TV to play out to the Beam or your device can target the Beam as an Airplay target on the wifi you would not be able to play directly from your ChromeCast device to Sonos.
