Fix YouTube Music Casting Issue on Chromecast, Google TV & Android TV

One of the huge advantages of casting or mirroring content is being able to watch your favorite videos on a wider screen. You can cast YouTube Music on your Google TV, Android TV, or Chromecast with Google TV to enjoy a better experience.

Unfortunately, many users reported an issue with the YouTube Music casting feature on their mobile devices. For some unknown reason, the casting tool stopped working on iPhone or Android phone and won’t mirror to TV. Users see the YouTube Music splash screen, then times out and disconnects the casting device. The Something went wrong error message on the screen appears.
