Not go fullscreen when casting to a Chromecast
When I cast to a Chromecast, the app enters a fullscreen mode.
v2021.12 will now use the regular player UI even when Casting

I also would like to prevent the app from going full screen when casting to my Google Nest Mini.
This is a really annoying aspect of a great app.

I totally agree. On a pixel phone with software navigation buttons, when the casting screen is displayed, the navigation buttons disappear. You have to swipe up to get the nav buttons back. Wish this wasn't the case. I prefer podcast addict to Pocket Casts, but they found a way to no have the buttons disappear. Love the app 😍. Thank you!
At least having a setting to disable this as default behaviour would be preferable; sad to see so many other nitty-gritty settings in the app just to realize this definitively isn't one.
Do please tell if there's something inherent to Android app development that would make this too much of a pain
Going fullscreen hides the system back button and home button. It's very inconvenient to have to swipe up before being given the option to use the OS controls for navigation. I get that the back button exists in the app, but it's jarring to have a different playback and control experience for casting vs. regular listening mode.
Sorry if I come across harsh - I love your app and this is literally the only thing that bothers me about it.
