Chromecast not working with android 5.1.1


My girlfriend has a moto g2 with android 5.0.2 and is able to see chromecast as a device. 

I have a moto g3 with android 5.1.1 and I can't  see the chromecast device.

both our spotifiy apps are at the same version (

She is using the free version, I am on premium paid version.

we are using the same wifi and the same chromecast 1st gen.


Any ideas?

Hello, and welcome to the Spotify Community!


I would advise to check to see if your chromecast is running the latest version. Only that latest version of CC OS supports Spotify.

It makes me all fuzzy inside

Hi Joe, firmware: 1.16.44433. Can you tell if it is the latest? As mentioned my girlfriend's phone works fine and mine doesn't. We are using the same chromecast device and WiFi connection. So I believe the problem is on my phone.

Seems to be a problem with the combination of moto g3, Spotify and Chromecast. I haven't found a solution yet. See my thread below:

After the latest Spotify update it's working with Android 5.1.1 and Chromecast. Thanks to App developers.
