    I purchased a chromecast audio and the only reason is to use it with YouTube. And IT IS NOT SUPPORTING. I cannot believe. Is there a way to connect to youtube?
    Thanks in advance.

    Not sure that would work unless you have a Paid YouTube subscription (and some users report that it worked on YouTube Music and then it didn't and then it did again and then it didn't again, so it might be something that they haven't really pinned down yet).

    Also, from other posts/forums, casting a YouTube tab from PC works with Audio, and also this:
    So do this:
    -Connect your Android device to the same Wi-Fi network as your Chromecast Audio.
    -Open the Chromecast app Chromecast cast icon.
    -In the top left corner, touch the navigation drawer More menu icon.
    -Touch the Cast Screen + Audio button.
    -Select your Chromecast Audio.

    And remember, YouTube, in the end, is geared more towards video... so it makes sense that adding/keeping Audio support isn't their priority. Not an excuse, just partial justification.

    Well, the above 'workaround' should do it on Android. Can't confirm that it works, though, as I don't own an Audio dongle.
    And that also seems to be Google 'standard' response.

    You could also try this, as it claims that it can route all audio from your phone to Chromecast Audio, BUT it requires root.

    I've just developed an android app "TubeCast - Web >Chromecast Audio" to cast youtube to chromecast audio, it only finds the music tracks so the network load is much lighter, as audio track is usually much smaller than the video itself. Please take a look at the video demo on youtube -
    It works pretty the same way as youtube app on android, you click on video, it shows dialog to play/add to queue, and let you play on repeat.
    This is the link on playstore - https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...b.castwebaudio
