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.

As others have stated - Would make this a killer app for me.  If not I'll have to go to Google Music All Access, which I'd prefer NOT to do.

Has anyone tried using the Spotify web player in Chome and streaming music to the Chromecast that way?

Play Music All Access is not only cheaper but will also have ChromeCast available out of the box.  Spotify really needs to step up and make this a priority.

I think it is essential that Spotify moves quick and makes sure that ChromeCast is implemented as soon as possible. This can be a good move to secure spotify as the primary music source in the home setup for many android users.

 

I cannot stress how annoyed I have been with the lack of a device carried streaming service such as ChromeCast compared to that of Apple's airplay, but since I refuse to sell my soul to the devil I have refrained from purchasing any Apple product, so finally we are seeing Google step up, now please Spotify, do the same :)
