Spotify has always been buggy with chromecast.
- It looses connection
- Often can't adjust volume without reconnecting to the chromecast. Or you must use the Google Home app.
- You must force close the app to discover cast devices when you come back home
- Spotify often shows a different song under "now playing" than what's actually being played
- Can't adjust volume if connected to a group of chromecasts. Workaround is using the Google Home app, but this is awfully cumbersome
I have never seen a changelog where you tell anything specific about fixing chromecast connectivity.
Do you ever update the Google Cast API? Have you (developers) tried Spotify with casting devices yourself? Can you honestly say that "yeah, everythings fine"? The biggest music streaming service in the world should not settle with the stability and performance of the chromecast support before it is as good or better than the Google Music app.
I think I'm not the only customer who'd wish for a less buggy experience using Spotify with casting devices.
