Spotify Desktop + Chromecast Audio NO CAST!!!

PieroA
Casual Listener

Tried ALL the obvious suggeste by Spotify assistance (?) but still it is IMPOSSIBLE to cast Spotify to a TV via Chromecast audio FROM a desktop pc

The set up is this:
1 - Win desktop PC connected to the office network via ethernet (not via wifi)

2 - Chromecast audio connected to the office network via wifi

3 - both Spotify desktop APP nor the web spotify TAB can be transmitted to the TV where the chromecast is connected too.

 

It use to work in another office, but here looks like there is no way

 

ALL firmware and **bleep** like that are aupdated, so please do not reply with banality but offer solution.

Otherwise will move back to TuneIn which is much better and reliable.

Good news!

 

Before you had to use the mobile app to play Spotify on Chromecast. You can now find Chromecast in the connect "devices available" menu in the Spotify desktop app and browser web player. Now you can cast your music to Chromecast from the desktop app without having to use the iOS or Android app.

 

Make sure your Spotify desktop app is up to date
