LG WK7 ThinQ (Chromecast) Volume Control

(Malcolm) #1

Hi - when I select Device Volume for this Roon is telling me volume control is not available - yet Google Home, Spotify and Tidal apps all allow volume control. Is this something you can take a look at? I know it’s not a Google product - but as all these other apps have working volume controls, I would guess (as a layman) that Roon should be able to control this just as it can my Google Home Mini. @support

Hello @Malcolm_Percival,

Thanks for contacting support regarding this finding, I have forwarded your question to our QA team who will take a look over this request.

I will be sure to let you know once this question has reached their queue and I have some feedback for you here, I appreciate your patience in the meantime.

+1 - I’m having the same issue with the LG-WK7. It would be nice to control volume from within Roon but it just says ‘volume control not available’ whether it’s set to Fixed or Device.

I’d love to be able to control volume here - but I thought it was just a “thing” about this speaker until I got the Google Home Mini (not really a great speaker, but good for Radio 4 on a morning) and realised (a) that Roon controls volume on the Google Home Mini and that (b) Spotify and others control the speaker volume when casting to the LG (just as they do with the Google Home Mini).

Happy to volunteer to test this functionality.

Hi @noris @support Any update on this issue? Would be lovely to control volume from my iPad (and not have to talk to the speaker at 2am to adjust the volume). Thanks.

Hey @Malcolm_Percival – unfortunately we are still working on getting our hands on one of these devices.

Until that happens, I suspect we will not be able to make a lot of progress, but we’re not giving up yet! We’ll let you know when we make some progress.

Thanks for your patience here!

Thanks @noris - all seems to be working perfectly. Volume responds instantly and smoothly to a finger slide on the iPad app. Impressed. :+1:t3::blush:
