You might have noticed this type of notification for the content that has been cast from the apps like YouTube. This type of notification shows an option for playback and skipping forward and backward on the video in the playlist. And “x” icon for closing the video that is playing. However, the new notification which is added in Google Play services will show all these controls plus they have the option to mute the audio that is specifically casting and you also have an option for to open up the Google cast settings and then from there you can disable the controls shown in the notification if you are in a house or business where there are lot of Chromecast. If you are not able to figure out how to disable the notification then you can take Chromecast support which is given by the Chromecast professional and they will try their best way possible to resolve your issue.

This feature is only there for Chromecast and Chromecast Audio so far that means if you are casting to the Google cast enabled devices such as TV, Android TV like NVIDIA SHIELD, then these controls will not appear.

This update is not been rolled out to everyone so far, and that is the case with many of Google’s apps as the update are rolled out to the users in batches and not completely.
