Are Spotify users able to cast music from Spotify software (Windows 8/10 PC), but I don't see my Chromecast Audio on my available device list.
I only see my 2 PC.
I tried on both my PC.
Could someone help me with this issue ?
I see ChromeCast Audio on my Android App.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Still no update from Spotify - pretty poor really.
SOLUTION: Open Spotify Web Player (https://play.spotify.com/browse) and play your tunes through your chrome browser. Click the cast button from the chromecast extension (top right) - click "cast this tab" to your deivce.
(I am literally doing this right now. Volume control seems to work also.)
It seems like you can populate the device list by casting from your phone after it has stolen the stream from a desktop install. First I get the green bar at the bottom of the desktop app when my phone becomes the playback device. Then on my phone I cast to my chromecast audio or chromecast ultra which automatically updates the id of the device that is currently streaming in the device list in the desktop app. From then on I have total control through the desktop spotify app of a stream that's going through my chromecast audio.
And I get to flip the high quality audio switch which makes me feel good.
I solved the issue by starting the spotify app on chromecast by starting it on the phone.
After that my spotify app on desktop can see it as a source now. I am listening it on right now :)
