Looking to block apps on a new Google Chromecast all apps would be great but haven't been able to block AppleTV, HBOMax and ESPN. I've put appletvplus and hbo into our blocked apps rule but they still open and able to be accessed.
Any one succesfully blocked Chromecast apps?

Hi @mlaporte ,
Are you able to identify specific IPs/domains the chromecast should have access to? I'm thinking you could try and create a security policy with the chromecast as the source IP and limit the destinations.
Another option might be to create custom apps. When you monitor your chromecast what applications do you see?

If you're attempting to use this solely as a casting target could you just deny access to the internet in it's entirety? Might have to play around a bit with the allowed domains to get enough traffic to pass to trick it to thinking it's connected possibly, but assuming you don't want the apps to work anyways that's a potential path forward.
