You can't do youtube from android directly. You would need a bluetooth adapter and plug it into the audio matrix with audio sensing. Otherwise you need to use shairebridge from an Apple product.

can also get airplay emulators on android and use the shairbridge on your system.

These usually only work if you have rooted your device.  At least I've never found a Shairbridge app that would work on my (non-rooted) phone.

It's ridiculous that Control4 does not come with inbuilt support for fundamental features like Google Cast and built-in Alexa/Google Assistant/Siri integration (i.e. without having to rely on Echo devices).

While I see the value in those features the vast majority of Control4 projects still do not use voice control (likely not the case for end users here but end users here do not accurately reflect the average user).  Having that built into the hardware increases cost so it's likely deemed not worth it at this point.  It also would require the companies you mentioned being willing to play ball, which some are more than others.  It also then opens up the privacy conversation which is an entirely different can of worms.

My MiBox 4 suddenly rebooted by itself and requested full restore to function again, crap shit just to find the fuc**n original remote to restore it back and reinstall all the apps and IrSUB, etc!

Role of thumb keep one remote of every device you have in your house in one place!

I think ChromeCast Audio built in would be valuable...

i have been using the VSSL amps with this functionality built in , but it would be a lot better if control4 would implement it on their amps or matrix switches as there are a few minor glitches with VSSL/C4 functionality. I agree that this is a major oversight on C4s part
