Samsung has a new feature that may or may not be useful for ChromeCast.
I'm hoping someone here has the S8 device and can check for us?

Turn on and pick the app you want(limited to 1 app at a time)

Then choose the location (I chose Music to bluetooth)

This way I can still listen to music and be able to hand my daughter my phone so she can watch youtube

And I posted this question on that thread:

You cannot divert the audio to Bluetooth for bluetooth speakers/headphones.

Does anyone know if this new Samsung feature will allow you to divert ChromeCast audio to Bluetooth?
That would be pretty darn cool if it did.

EDIT: Btw, I don't have the Samsung phone.
I was linked here from a Google Pixel thread. But I'm really interested to know the answer to my question above.
