My Question or Issue
I received a Google Home mini through a Spotify promotion. I assumed that meant the device was compatible with the app (in all its forms), but the desktop app does NOT show the home mini in available devices to play to. In fact, it doesn't even show my phone. Only if I start a song FROM my phone does either my phone or the speaker show up on the desktop app. All versions of the app are up to date, all devices are running their latest software/OS, and all devices are on the same WiFi network.
I use the desktop app while working during the day to leave the battery and memory free on my phone to do other things. Having to run my music from my phone to the speaker defeats that purpose, drains my battery, and other functions on my phone can interrupt the app. PLEASE add this connect functionality to the desktop app.

Hey there @J13lue,
Thanks for getting in touch with us and welcome to the Community 🙂
The troubleshooting steps you've tried so far are very good. We'd like to add a few more. We'd suggest you restart the devices and to log out and log back in to the account.
You can also give these steps a go and clear the cache. That way you can make sure the cache is not causing this issue.
