My Question or Issue

 I have a chromecast audio with optical out. Streaming setting is set highest quality, however Spotify keeps changing it to automatic. I keep turning it back to highest quality which is changed back again and again. Real dealbreaker.

Hey @mcbien.


Thanks for reaching out to the community!


Right now, the standard quality for streaming Spotify with Chromecast is AAC 128kbit/s, and 256kbit/s for Premium.


This is automatic and can't be changed at the moment. Going to your Spotify Settings before casting and choosing the highest quality won't affect the Chromecast casting quality at all.


I hope this helps.
