I'm interested in this because I can't get the alternative RP streams to play on the Google speaker.  "Hey, Google, play Radio Paradise on TuneIn" works (U.S.) but trying anything else ("Rock Mix", "Mellow", "Eclectic") results in Google responding "playlists aren't available on TuneIn."  Thanks.
 

Casting to Google Home is only available on our Android app. Sorry about that. 
 
Thanks!  TuneIn iPhone app does cast to Google devices, so problem worked around.  Still a mystery why Google can't directly find the alternative streams on TuneIn.

You  should be able to do this from the TuneIn app directly.    If not,  there's a few streaming apps on iOS that support casting.    Not sure which one to recommend though.

My understanding is  tunein  uses  the 320k  aac  stream.
So only step up from that would be if you have the wifi quality set to flac in the Android app before you start casting.

If you play radio paradise via tune in it will play the live stream which would be in sync.

If you use a phone/tablet  to cast to the  home speaker you can use the phone to sync.   But the only voice commands available are the generic ones like  pause/resume and skip.

I just noticed that in addition to pause, resume and skip questions about the currently playing song are also working on Google home (current song, album, year). Pretty cool. I suppose that the audio quality is also better through chromecast than tuneIn

Sort of,  they haven't  opened up the ability to start  casting by voice command.     Best you can do at this point is  cast to the speaker and then use  voice commands to skip and pause.

Now that there is native Google Cast support, we can skip TuneIn and use the native app right? Would be nice to be able to say "Play Radio Paridise", and be able to skip numbers etc.

thanks anyway
 

Hmmm...  Works fine for me. 

What country are you in? 

Are you sure you're saying "radio paradise"  rather than "paradise radio" or just 'paradise"?
 

In Massachusetts. It must be my Italian accent then :)
I will check tonight if my wife's voice works better 

 

It is now working, not sure what changed from yesterday. I noticed that G Home is sometime get to the Spotify playlist rather than the TuneIn channel when saying "Hey Google play RP on TuneIn". Instead with "Hey Google play RP on Radio" works always well.

Can add a bit to this.
There's still only a handful of audio apps you can launch by voice.
https://support.google.com/googlehome/answer/7172483?hl=en&ref_topic=7195641

It seems The Google Home apps are actually just chromecast  apps under the hood.    Since when you launch something like tunein it shows a casting notification on any connected Android phones.  Which can be used to stop the audio.

Currently you can cast the Android beta app to google home and  give  standard audio commands  like skip / pause / resume

Hey Bill,

How are things progressing with the Google Home App? It seems like the development of it would be a shortcut versus adding the Chromecasting function to both your Android and iOS Apps, and likely give the user better control over bitrates.

Personally, I'm asking as I moved my multi-room audio tech from Squeezebox to Chromecast Audio, and for some reason I can't control TuneIn's bit rates AND it drops a second or two every other song though I have great WAN and LAN stats.

Thanks man,

-Ben
