Just in time for Valentine’s Day, we’ve got the perfect way for you to set the mood. When you listen to Google Play Music on your Chromecast, you can display a cozy fireplace on your TV while your music plays in the background. And yes, it’s just as awesome as it sounds.

To turn this on, click the Gear icon in the upper right corner in Google Play Music on the web and select “Labs.” Find the “Chromecast Fireplace Visualizer” lab and click “enable.” Voila! Next time you cast music to your Chromecast from your phone, tablet or web player, you’ll see a crackling fire instead of album art. Get started:

So stay in, sit back, and crank up those love songs.

would have been nice for Christmas. better late than never thanks.
I hope this means other visualizer options are coming for show during music playback (eg displaying photos from Google+, the screensaver pics from the Chromecast screen, etc).
Dammit, now I really wish we could get Chromecasts in Canada without the Amazon markup. bah.
Yeah, how do I do this from my phone?
Oh, never mind. It was already working. Google is too smart. I figured I'd have to take another step. It's awesome!
Do I need to have a special version of the app? It seems I still haven't got the latest update. 
I have a novel idea +Google Play .... fix the fucking download errors. I am getting nothing but 927 download errors and I'm not creating a new account and loosing over $200 in paid apps and music. So far nothing works.
that right there is how babies get made!
+Google Play, please bring some of your play servises to those of us in Europe, especially Scandinavia. 
I hope this is the start of adding other cool visuals. I'd love to be able to create a playlist of vids to go with my music. 
+David Wales I've tried all of this except the changing the account.                                             Solutions:

1.   Update all Apps

2.   Clear Device Cache

3.   Reset app preferences

4.   Use WiFi connection to download apps

5.   Clear Google Play Data

6.  Uninstall Recent Updates

7. Clear the Android Market Data

I've factory reset my phone. I've used official Motorola Firmware and RSD Lite to restore my phone and nothing. I even bought another phone. This started about 2 months ago.
it would be nice to have such animations in the normal browser window on a desktop pc for google music, too.
should make this (as well as other displays like fish tanks and landscapes) options in Chromecast or in the Play Music app for when casting instead of just a Valentines Day Lab
Great,  amusing little thing to check out during this snow day!
OK people!  Anyone who has a TV mounted above a fireplace needs to run this every time you light an actual fire!
+Stefan Sarzio you have to set it up at the website. Can't set it up from a mobile device. But once set up it will work when you cast from a mobile device.
+Ralph Bretz so this occurs on multiple devices?

PS. If yes, try to set up 2 step authentication for your account then turn it off again.

If that doesn't work try opening a support ticket, I know it sucks but sometimes its the only option.
Please give us more - my son Loves to dance to the visualizations from XBMC and it is the main thing we are missing

Come on baby lite my fire♡♥
+David Wales It happened on my original Moto X. I sold that and bought another. Happens on the new one also. If it was just me than a ticket would be the way to go but this has been happening to people for awhile on many different devices in many different countries so it's not an isolated incident.
Google play music is awesome. Chromecast... not so awesome. 
Only from the web, not mobile.(Labs for the app ;-) ) But it's better than nothing :-)

Here is an idea, +Google Play. How about making it possible to find readymade playlists for anything? So you could search for, say Christmas, Easter or something I could use tomorrow, Valentine's Day!

I have no clue on how to make this technically, but thats your expertise, right?
Once set up on the web, it works from mobile

You can buy tickets to the Shriners Circus Tickets, that is a win win!!!!!!
When you love someone, you give with your heart. It doesn't matter which day it is! Valentine's day is so commercial and the stupid ones fall for it! 
Can we do this from a tablet? :-) 
Now we just need it here in the uk... Still waiting
To bad it doesn't actually crackle together with the sound that's playing
Well at least I have something to keep me warm to night
Yumm,this iz so romantik & loveable all N 1!!!
Partialy erect burning wood for VD...........hummmmm😕

Can we get one for the summer now?

Step in the right direction, but Winamp type visualizations are just what Chromecast is missing.  :(
Another one for a summer visualisation, you know, like a beach! Or ability to pick a Google + Photo Album
When you need fire chrome get fire for you

Fantastic... so it can be done no problem, can we get more options? 
Hey Google, it would be awesome to get some alternatives for this. An aquarium maybe?
can't find it in my options???
