[Chromecast] Scrobble to Last.fm

I don't understand why this feature wasn't implemented with Chromecast support, but it is very important for me. Please, add feature to scrobble track played on Chromecast to Last.fm account of device which initiated the playback. 

 

This might be related to [Spotify Connect] Scrobble to Last.fm and [Sony] Add Last.fm support to PS3/PS4 App, because scrobbling is unavailable on other devices too.

Marked as new idea.
As mentioned, you might also want to add your kudos to a similar idea about scrobbling when using Spotify Connect here.

This is a great idea. I thought it had been scrobbling from Chromecasr all along only to discover that there's no record of 80% of what I've been playing for the past few months. I listen to Spotify primarily through Chromecast and this lack of functionality is making me look into just getting an aux chord to plug my phone into the speaker system. That way I won't lose plays.

I'd love for this idea to be considered for implementation. If not, then make accessible the data aggregated in "Year in Review" anytime throughout my Spotify lifecycle. I'd be more than happy to live in one ecosystem (Spotify) if I could conveniently check my listening trends whenever. Most importantly would be:

  • Music listened to 24 hours, daily, weekly, monthly, 3 months, yearly, all-time
  • Similar artists I would like (you guys already do this)
  • Favourite artists by timespan, trending, seasonally, etc.

For now, last.fm offers that and, as such, I'd want the support to exist for Chromecasted plays to go to last.fm. If you can make it too convenient for me to not need my last.fm anymore (or import my history to inform Discover Weekly, etc.), I'd be very interested.
Thanks!

I too just discovered that Spotify doesn't scrobble when casting to chromecast. I was sure that it would, since the device that is casting was set to scrobble.

I'm very, very disappointed that this is not implemented :(

@Marco, can you combine kudos and try to push it to dev?

I would also love this feature. I use Chromecast much more than I use my headphones, wich result in a lot o tracks not scrobbled.
