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

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.

I AM NOT AN EMPLOYEE OF SPOTIFY AB. I am just a thirteen year old child trying to help out. I am not paid to help or say any views of Spotify AB or any of it's affiliates, so the least that you could do is share some kudos, or, if I helped you out, mark my post as a solution. 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.
