Bring back casting to Chromecast for Mobile devices
Since update 5.29.1 for Android, cast to Chromecast when connected to a Wi-Fi network with a suitable device, was removed without any further notice.
Please fix whatever instability issues you found and let users know what is included in the latest version.
The What is new text is so old and untouched that the best selling point is the introduction of the PIN and no mention to what is removed if you update the app.
Update to the latest version of OneDrive, and see all of your media content on the big screen with Chromecast!

I was so angry back in time as i saw that you guys have removed Chromecast support!! WTF! Bring back this important function as soon as possible!! As a customer that pays for your service this is just stupid.
Graag Cast mogelijkheden voor one drive. Ga mee met de markt niet tegen in.
No fire tv app, no roku app, no Chromecast support. Microsoft wants every TV to have an Xbox connected to it. Time to sideload the Android onedrive app to a fire tv stick.
Please enable the casting feature on one drive. It made the app a viable utility and productive tool especially for presentations on the big screen. Thanks.

Why on earth would this ever be removed??? Makes video storage nearly useless
The app is bad without chromecast
Bring Casting back!
Useless with onedrive if i´m not able to easy cast on TV.
If you are not able to find a solution on this in the nearest future then i will leave.

Please reinstate this feature.
We cannot connect onedrive with chromecast to watch photo's. While it works good withbgoogle phpto's.
Please offer a solution.
This was Microsoft's broken system. Things don't work well, remove it instead of trying very hard to fix it. It has been over a year and still not able to come out with a solution.
Why remove it. It is very useful. Just because the tech giants fight each other, why take it out on the customer.
Just when Google and Amazon sort out their differences, now Microsoft has to go to war.
Please Microsoft, make the Chromecast Support for the Android One Drive App possible again.
Es wäre schön, wenn Chromecast wieder funktionieren würde. Bei mir funktioniert es leider auch nur noch über ScreenMirroring
Chromecast is absolutely necessary part of OneDrive, MUST be there!
This is an absolute necessity for photos. Sharing joy of photos on a TV with family and friends can only happen with Chromecast. Microsoft should improve the software to make it work better instead of simply removing it and surrender. That should not be the attitude of Microsoft which I found happening too many times. Like removing Groove for playing music.
Chromecast is absolutely necessary part of OneDrive. Cannot project photos on the TV to show friends is pitiful.
Also needed is ability to do slideshows. OneDrive need to do better than Google photos

I am using onedrive in the assumption that foto's could be cast with chromcast. As i bough chromcast especially for this I am very angry that it now does not work.
I do not understand why microsoft has disabled this option without any notion.
They do not seem to understand what users need and is a slap in the face of the users.

It was always working down for me... Please bring it back, I'd rather not have to use LocalCast just to do something the app should do otherwise, especially as a paying customer for a long time now...
