Chromecast default device/Android

Chromecast default device/Android

Wondering why spotify can't set a default device to play too? ie when I am at home, and start spotify, EITHER, I shoud be able to set my Chromecast as the default device, or spotify should just fire up connected to the last connected device.

Have seen lots of queries/suggestions for this, but is this just another case of Spotify ignoring user requests??

Every time I start Spotify at home, have to go through the whole rigmarole of going to settings/devices etc. Sometimes I just don't bother, and watch TV....

Would be REALLY appreciated....

Yes, why not?

Hey there @JuergenA,


Welcome to the Community!


Currently there is no option to set a default playback device. Whenever you connect to a Wi-Fi network you need to chose a device to play music from from the Available Devices list, otherwise the music will just play from your phone.
