My Question or Issue

The connection between spotify and chromecast audio breaks approximately every 5 minutes. I do not have other devices to test on but if i use my laptop (and make connection via phone) it also goes wrong


I do not have this issue with other music casting apps, it is solely Spotify.


The chromecast audio has been resetted and updated to latest software.


I have cleared Spotify cache and uninstalled and reinstalled spotify countless times. It drives me crazy. Also, i pay for a functionality not delivered.

Thanks for your reply. However your solution is not acceptable since the spotify team seems not to be acting on complaints and concerns addressed in that topic. The same complaint has been mentioned for months but your 'appropriate team' has not come up with a solution.


So we pay for omething which does not work as it did and you do not take it seriously. Can you inform me how spotify will deal with that? SHould we end our subscriptions?
