Pandora has investigated this issue and determined that it is due to Vizio failing to update the Chromecast firmware in their devices up to version 1.28 or higher. This problem was revealed in May of this year when Pandora issued an update to their app that incorporated the newest version of Google's Chromecast software.
Simply tap the Cast button from the Pandora app to hear your music on the TV. Play, skip, search and browse, right from your phone. Make calls or use your phone for other things- without disrupting what's playing. Get started in 3 easy steps. 1. Plug Chromecast into your HDTV and power. 2. Connect Chromecast to your home WiFi network. 3. It's a bit buggy. I need to reboot phone and chromecast everytime. Otherwise, I can see the CC icon, but it doesn't function.

I use my Chromecast to cast video in chrome tabs from my PC to my tv. So the Chromecast has been crashing a lot lately, usually after about 1/2 hour of use.
