    OK... I am stumped.

    I have set up Play Music Premium, You Tube Red, and Pandora in the Home app. I can pretty much play anything by saying something like "play trilogy by Emerson, Lake, and Palmer in bedroom... and it plays on the bedroom Chromecast, and it replies it is playing from Play Music.

    But... when I try to play a Play Music playlist ("play evening jazz on bedroom") it only plays locally on the Home.

    What am I missing?

    From my experience, sometimes Playlists get confused and think the "on [device]" is part of the playlist name.

    But it is playing the right playlist, but only on the Home.

    You're giving "OK Google, Play [playlist] on [device]."

    Google might be parsing the command into Play [Playlist on Device] instead and searches for the playlist in Google Play. It finds the playlist and plays it, ignoring the last two words in what it thought was the playlist name. Play Music right now is REALLY picky about playlist names, so be careful how you title yours if you're using Google Home.

    LOL... it doesn't work with either 'bedroom' or 'media room'. But, oddly enough, "on [device_name] play [playlist_name]" does.

    So much for this being more precise than the Echo. (c;

    I even tried "play evening jazz playlist on media room" thinking 'playlist' should delimit the playlist/device string, but no.
