I am looking into how the Canvas product reacts to music. My current understanding on how this feature works is that the Canvas will listen to music using a microphone and react to what it hears through the air.
My suggestion: Have Canvas "listen" to music directly with Chromecast (or similar product).
My home setup has several Chromecast devices (dedicated Chromecast Audio and integrated speakers) linked together as a group. I then simultaneously cast music to all Chromecast devices in that group. I would like the ability to add the Canvas to the Chromecast group so that the Canvas can fully react to music even if the external audible volume is low for ambiance. The Canvas does not need to broadcast the music, just "listen" and react. The Chromecast plugin can be an added dedicated tile or maybe as an adapter inline with the power supply.
I hope this suggestion is considered and adopted soon. Thank you for making a great product!
