Using Chromecast built-in™ to enjoy audio content from a smartphone or tablet device

You can play back audio/music content selected in a Chromecast-enabled app on a mobile device by activating the Chromecast built-in function. You can also listen to the same music in multiple rooms if you register devices that support the Chromecast built-in function such as the receiver and wireless speakers located in another room, to a group in advance.
For details, refer to the following Chromecast website:

  1. Select [Listen] - [Music Service List] from the home menu.

    The music service list appears on the TV screen.

  2. Select [Chromecast built-in] to activate the function.

    Perform the settings to use Chromecast built-in on the receiver by following the on-screen instructions.
    Once the settings are configured, [Network Standby] is set to [On] automatically, and you can quickly start up the receiver from standby mode to play music.

  3. Connect the mobile device to the same network as that of the receiver.
  4. Install the Chromecast-enabled app to the mobile device.
  5. Start the Chromecast-enabled app, tap the cast button, and select [STR-ZA810ES XXXXXX] (*) or group in which [STR-ZA810ES XXXXXX] (*) is included.

  6. Select and play music on the Chromecast-enabled app.

    The music is played back on the receiver or on each device in the selected group.

* XXXXXX is the identification number for each unit.


  • While playing music using the Chromecast built-in function, you can only select [Multi Ch Stereo] or [2ch Stereo] by pressing 2CH/MULTI on the remote control or the receiver. You cannot select other sound fields.
  • Chromecast built-in and the Chromecast-enabled app may not be available in some countries/regions.
