Hi,
MM4 supports only UPnP, DLNA renderers
MM5 supports UPnP, DLNA and Google Cast (devices like Chromecast, Google Home etc.), other casting protocols are not implemented yet (and are planned for 5.1)

I've downloaded the latest version of MM5 Beta and it seems the only available option to cast is to "play to internal player". I have no other options. Is there a method to opening up more casting options?

Hi,
Can you please try latest version from https://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewt ... 86639&sd=d as we have added several enhancements for casting to Audio only devices.

Curious if there has been any further progress on using Alexa and MM to stream music to the Alexa devices? (Dot, echo, whatever...)

Obviously because Echo uses the "Alexa Cast" protocol (that is not supported by MM), while Google Home uses "Google Cast" protocol.

When I hit cast, I only see my Google Home mini. Obviously, Spotify allows for casting to my echo. That's the only other music service that I use. I just wondered why my Google Home mini shows, but not the Echo.

Hi,
When you try to cast in MM5 what do you get? Any other app that can cast to Echo/Alexa?

I see that we can cast MM5 to Google Home devices. Are there any plans to add the ability to cast to Echo devices? Sorry if this was asked before. I searched, but didn't find any reference to this.
