My Question or Issue

 Could you make an official statement on which bitrate Spotify uses when casting music to a Chromecast Ultra device. It sure doesn't sound like the 320kbps "xtreme" sound quality...

Hi @jonas_a_o

There is an official statement here which says:

Standard quality for streaming Spotify with Chromecast is AAC 128kbit/s, and 256kbit/s for Premium.

I hope that makes it clear for you.

Have an awesome day :)
