    I am not aware of any "Streaming" music app that allows even downloaded content to be played by any other apps. A these are streaming services, you are only paying to have access to their media through their service, and then only while you are maintaining your subscription.

    Only files you actually purchase (i.e. not pay to stream) can be played in a media player such as Poweramp. These can be lossy (mp3, wma) or lossless (FLAC, ALAC, WAV, AIFF, etc) but regardless the files must be either purchased (Apple, Amazon, HDtracks, ProStudio Masters) or ripped from your own collection.

    You are correct. 

    It gets a little worse with YouTube Music. Uploaded tracks can't be downloaded as mp3, unlike how Play Music did. As with their streaming music, these are only for use in the YTM app. To get your files back, you have to use takeout.

    Add an auto profile switcher, like for example when you connect to a specific Bluetooth speaker, load this profile, or if you use the speaker output, or the headphones etc. Or maybe even by app itself.

    If I'm understanding you right, this feature is there. Long tap on a preset and tap assign. You can select the devices you want for that preset.

    Well, Neutron is a great player and it has pre-amp but the user interface takes some  *cough* getting used to. It needs more study to do things, but I must say in audio quality I hardly see a difference other than the great equaliser (and the autoeq feature that works for my Sony WH- 1000XM3). I was tinkering a lot to get the headphones more natural before discovering AutoEQ, I really think Sony over appreciates bass ;-). 

    Can't possibly be as much of a love of bass as Beats.

    When I ask Assistant to play a track, it always seems to play it through the "Album" category with shuffle off. Can I change it so it's shuffled and played through the "All Songs" category?

    This sounds like the same behavior I've had with YT Music. It almost seems like an Assistant problem.

    MP3's, most are between 160-190 bit rate

    There goes that idea. I'm using flac.

    And are these the same files (and same folder locations on your device) that seem to play OK from other apps? For local physical files PA has to stream the entire audio data over your LAN, whereas other apps may simple be asking the Chromecast device to play some online content directly from a streamed source.


    Same files working fine on other apps such as Musicolet and Jetaudio+.

  6. Since this thread has been resurrected, I'll just use this one to post rather than start a new one. 

    I am having difficulty getting Poweramp to work with chromecast. Currently, I am on version build-893-arm64-play, but the same problems existed on the last release (not beta.)

    Basically, when I try to cast from my phone (Pixel 5) to any Chromecast device, from speaker to TV, it is inconsistent at best. It always makes the connection, but doesn't always actually play. When it doesn't play, I'll see the app increment the track a second or two and then stop, and the visualizer moves a little, jumps back, and repeats. I am able to get it work sometimes, but there's no rhyme or reason to it.

    So far I have been unable up get it work on my Pixelbook Slate at all.
