I have casting to Chromecast working. But you need to login to Google
- Install the regular Google tools via GOS Apps
- Enable Network and Nearby devices for Google Play services and Play store (not sure if this is mandatory)
- Install Google Home app.
Login to a Google account is mandatory to get it working.
It works for Netflix and Videoland (mandatory for the wife ;-) Have not tested with apps but it'll probably work.
BTW if you create an empty profile (Settings > System > Multiple users) with only these tools installed, Google only collects the bare minimal.
