Add support for Google ChromeCast

Will you be adding support to the ChromeCast that Google announced today? Would be great to be able to easily stream music from all my devices to my receiver and tv.

 

Please see the Api information here: https://developers.google.com/cast/

 

Update: implementing ChromeCast is superior to using the Chrome browser plugin to move a tab with the Spotify web interface to your TV for multiple reasons. Most importantly:

 - You can stream higher fidelity

 - You can stream from every device, not only from a computer/laptop

 - You can control from multiple devices (so if I leave the room my wife can control Spotify with her phone)

 

If implemented correctly this would match the functionality of Sonos for a much lower price.

 

Update February 4th 2014: Okay, so Google has released the SDK now. Please start working on the functionality or at the very minimum give an update to the status...

 

Update February 19th 2014: 2,000 kudos, hundreds of replies (with more than a handful of cancelations). Apparently Spotify Germany has confirmed Chromecast support is coming. An update would be nice

 

Update March 24th 2014: 2,500 kudos and still no update. Cancelled my subscription today. Sorry, but if you don't listen to your paying customers we will have to speak with our wallets.

Updated: 2015-10-22

In collaboration with Google, we’re thrilled to announce one of your most requested features here in The Spotify Idea Exchange is here. Spotify now works with your Chromecast.

With Chromecast, listening at home is easy. Simply plug in and cast music directly from your phone or tablet. Play, skip, browse and search using the Spotify app--all Spotify users will get the on demand experience on Chromecast. Oh, and feel free to make calls, watch a video or play games - the music will keep playing. Even if your battery runs out.

 

To learn more about how you can listen at home, head over to www.spotify.com/at-home.

Just to let you all know, I have Chromecast and I use Spotify with it all the time! It works very well and is very important to my home entertainment system.

If you have any questions about my experience feel free to contact me!

Hi! 

I don't know is this the right channel to comment, but I will. I've got a little issue when I'm streaming Spotify via Chromecast into my TV. 

 

For example I was playing some Calvin Harris, when suddenly the melody muted, but timer went on and on. This has happened in several songs after you updated the Spotify view for Chromecast. 

 

Background is black and the cover with play buttons is there.

When will you be implementing Chromecast support into the desktop app?

A mí me encantaría que la traducción sea automática y de calidad en esta web de comunicación entre suarios. Me es imposible leerte, ya que somos de distintos lugares del mundo, y es increible poder comunicarnos, sobretodo por la música, tenemos idiomas diferentes. Resultaria una comunicación mucho más efectiva y cuantificable. Seria increíble y ayudaría a mi navegación como usuario de esta comunidad.

It's a little more unnessesary steps to go thru then should be to connect to cromecast . Why not make It as easy as every other app who is cromecast ready ? A connect-sign at the top ? Just wondering .
