Add support for Google ChromeCast

Status: Not right now

Will you be adding support to the ChromeCast that Google announced today? Would be great to be able to easily stream music from all my devices to my receiver and tv.

 

Please see the Api information here: https://developers.google.com/cast/

 

Update: implementing ChromeCast is superior to using the Chrome browser plugin to move a tab with the Spotify web interface to your TV for multiple reasons. Most importantly:

 - You can stream higher fidelity

 - You can stream from every device, not only from a computer/laptop

 - You can control from multiple devices (so if I leave the room my wife can control Spotify with her phone)

 

If implemented correctly this would match the functionality of Sonos for a much lower price.

 

Update February 4th 2014: Okay, so Google has released the SDK now. Please start working on the functionality or at the very minimum give an update to the status...

 

Update February 19th 2014: 2,000 kudos, hundreds of replies (with more than a handful of cancelations). Apparently Spotify Germany has confirmed Chromecast support is coming. An update would be nice

 

Update March 24th 2014: 2,500 kudos and still no update. Cancelled my subscription today. Sorry, but if you don't listen to your paying customers we will have to speak with our wallets.

Status: Not right now
Hello everyone. The request for ChromeCast has become uncommonly popular since the product was launched so we're currently having discussions about how best to implement this. However, due to several prevailing priorities we're going to have to say "not right now" to this idea. Please subscribe to this thread for updates since the status will likely change when we're ready to implement ChromeCast support. [Update - March 27th, 2014] Thanks for the votes and comments! We're listening but don't have an update just yet. Please continue to show your support and stay updated in this thread.

Ditto.  I'll take Spotify over Pandora any day, but really need to be able to push music from App.

I absolutely agree. This would make me very happy.

Agree, this is something I'd love to see.

I especially miss this kind of feature in my android app.

This needs to be a priorty so people don't start heading to Google Music!

This chromecast thing is going to be huge! Seriously, since when does the coolest thing for your living room cost 35 bucks? Spotify should get on this!

Been a spotify premium subscriber for years; but if it doesn't get chromecast, I'll be switching to Google Music All Access the moment it comes to the UK.

I registerred on the forums earlier today just to say this!! Wouldn't let me post though :)  Great idea!! Doubt it's hard to implement since it's an open source SDK. If not, it is a good enough reason for me to switch to Google Music All Access or whatever its called.

I've already ordered the ChromeCast. If it can run Pandora it can certainly run Spotify. There is already an SDK out for ChromeCast. Come on, Spotify, do it!!!!

This really needs to happen! Please do it fast and soon! I love spotify but it makes google music look appealing and people might switch over.
