Vivaldi is connecting to a google home device.

I found a following TCP session in my Arch linux PC.
It looks vivaldi is connecting to 192.168.0.8 (google home mini).
$ ss -p | grep vivaldi
tcp ESTAB 0 0 192.168.0.15:47326 192.168.0.8:8009 users:(("vivaldi-bin",pid=21180,fd=191))
vivaldi was installed from Arch Aur and version is 1.14.1077.60.
I disabled all the extensions and restarted, but it appeared.
Have you ever seen this kind of thing?
@riazor That's a home network address. Do you use chromecast?
Vivaldi sended out a packet to check for ChromeCast devices. You have one in your network and this is connected.

Thanks for your reply.
I don't have chromecast device and I'm sure it is google home mini as I confirmed its MAC address at google home app.
Also vivaldi sends packets repeatedly(every 5sec), not one time.
$ tcpdump dst port 8009

Do you have any idea about what vivaldi is doing?
Close all tabs
Start Vivaldi in shell with
vivaldi --url chrome://net-internals/
You will see all connections going on
You may check which connects to your local LAN devices
