      My android app will not give me the option to use my Chromecast but my iPad app still works fine with Chromecast.  Any idea why it won't work with the android app?  I can use all other apps on the Android phone with the Chromecast without any issues

          Same thing over here. I'm able to use a Roku Streaming Stick perfectly fine with Android app

            Ok I just figured out a work around.  It is jank, but it seems to work.  You have to cast your screen from the Google home app.  Then open the slingbox app and connect.  After it connects go ahead and return to your home screen.  Close the slingbox app completely through task manager.  Then reopen the slingbox app all while still casting your screen to your Chromecast.  The little icon to cast directly should now appear on the slingbox app while opened.  Once it is selected it will automatically disconnect the cast screen function from Google home.
