It may not show up as a WiFi AP....
But can the App can still see it?

I'm not saying it does or doesn't just suggesting it might.

Maybe once that new "Don't have to be on my WiFi network" ultrasonic thing rolls out, but right now I've scanned for it and haven't seen an active AP, broadcasting or not. My Chromecast app never shows anything new unless my AP goes down, then my CCs go into "Ready to set up" but I don't see any unknown units unless I plug another one in.
