We just released an update to QCast for Android that resolves some playback and login issues. More backend and app updates coming soon!

Hi folks,

We apologize for the issues relating to Google Play Music on QCast, and for our lack of communication regarding this problem.

Currently, Android users who sign in to Google Play Music on QCast aren't able to search for or stream All Access tracks. Library tracks remain operational. Spotify and SoundCloud remain operational, as does Google Play Music on iOS.

We're working to address this issue and hope to have more to share soon. Thanks for your patience. 

A new Android beta is out with multi-service support (including SoundCloud!), queue reordering and more!

Get it here: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.qcastapp.android

Hey folks, we've got a fresh new Android beta for you to try!

The headlining feature is multi-service support.  This means that songs from Google Play Music, Spotify, and now SoundCloud can be mixed and matched in the same party - and you can browse your playlists from all three places at once.  If you only have one of these services, but a guest has another and signs in with QCast, that service will be enabled for everyone!

We've also added a feature by popular request - queue reordering!  Simply long-press a song in the queue to reorder it.  Like Skip, this feature is enabled for hosts only.

Please note that iOS doesn't yet support multi-service, so you may encounter issues with iOS participants in a party that was created with the Beta app.  If you wish to opt out of the beta at any time, you can do that using the link in the info box of the G+ Community.  The iOS app will be updated soon with this new functionality.

We'd like your help with the following:

Bugs - what's broken?  Tell us so we can fix it :)
UX - what's unclear, confusing, or weird?  Tell us so we can make the experience using QCast better.

Thanks for your help making QCast awesome!

If you've had problems playing Spotify songs in QCast - the issue should now be resolved!  Let us know if you have any issues.

Hi all - if any of you have devices with ~800x480 or ~1280x720 res screens - we'd appreciate your help.  Can you post a screenshot of QCast with a party open and a few songs in the queue?  We're trying to track down some resolutions-specific layout issues, but all of us have 1080p devices.  Thanks!
