Chromecast Premium feature?

Hi

I have noticed that the Chromecast streaming feature from the Spotify Android player seem to have recently become for premium accounts only - or at least this is what I read in the app when attempting to connect to it.

However looking at this page https://support.spotify.com/uk/using_spotify/play_on_stereo_tv_car/chromecast-steps-and-setup/ I can see that the Chromecast on TV is also for free accounts.

Can you confirm if this is correct?

Thanks

Or you could open Google home app then go to the top left corner and click on " cast screen / audio" then stream audio from any app.

Exactly, however I do not have the Chromecast Audio but I still can not use it anymore since one of the most recent updates.

It's still broken for me. Can't cast to a Chromecast 2 from either phone or desktop anymore, was working 2 days ago.

Go to "My Library" and then "settings" in the spotify app and select the "local Wi-Fi only option. This fixed my issue.
