Chromecast shows up on Android and iPad but not on desktop version (Mac OS)

Visitor

Plan: Premium, in the UK

Devices: Android phone, iPad Pro, Mac computer (Mojave)

 

My Chromecast Audio appears on my iPad's spotify app and on my Android phone as a streaming choice, but never on my Mac desktop. I have to start playing a song via mobile or iPad, and only then it shows up on desktop as active. As soon as I stop playing music through the Chromecast Audio, it disappears from desktop again and I have to revert to mobile/iPad to get the music started again. My Sonos devices work well and always appear on all my devices so issue limited to Chromecast. Any help would be appreciated.
