Problem with Moto G3 and Chromecast (2015) (video version)

Spotify won't find my new Chromecast (2015) (video version) when using my Moto G (3rd generation) phone.

All other applicable apps on my Moto G3 finds the Chromecast.

When using my other devices the corresponding Spotify app finds the Chromecast.

 

I know of at least one more Moto G3 user with the same problem on a swedish forum.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hmm. Odd, I would suggest that if other devices using spotify can connect to your Chromecast and you've found another user with the same phone having the same issue then maybe it's an issue with the device and you should contact the manufacturer

Same here on a G3 using old Chromecast. All other Chromecast apps work flawless so I classify it as a Spotify specific issue.
If I use another Android device to let Spotify use the Chromecast it can be seen and controlled on my G3. Obviously there is a discovery issue. Question is what is the difference here between Spotify and other Chromecast apps.

Spotify needs the sticky broadcast permission and I don't see that with other Chromecast apps (e.g. Netflix, Google Play Music).
So maybe it's a combination of different behavior of the Spotify app and a problem in the Moto G firmware.

Same is happening to me.

See my problem: Chromecast not working with android 5.1.1

 

It is disappointing to see it working for "free users" and not working for the payed ones.

Another user with the same issue here, since I got my new Moto G 3rd gen I wasn't able to discover chromecast (old one) from my spotify app. My workaround is opening it first with my nexus 7 and from there I can start controlling the chomecast using my phone.

 

PS: All my other apps like youtube and netflix, are able to find and connect to the chromecast without any problem

Same. Moto g3 and can't see my chromecast audio.

 

Not a great start for my Spotify tryout.
