Add video on casted TV device for podcasts casted via Chromecast/Roku etc.

Status: Implemented

Podcasts that currently have video available on your mobile or desktop device, lose the video feature once you cast it to a TV via Chromecast. This is a major surprise as this is a frequent way of watching video podcasts on TV. Please consider casting the video part of the podcast along with the audio on casted devices.

Hey folks,

 

Thanks for coming to the Spotify Idea Exchange and voting to make this happen.

 

We're happy to announce that this feature is now available on multiple big screen devices, such as Chromecast and Roku (Roku TVs with firmware 8.2/ Roku Set top Boxes with firmware 9.0).

 

Once again, thanks for helping us make Spotify better, by participating here on the Community.

Annnnnnnd now, if you switch off the app and have it in the background, when you return, the play button doesn’t work, the back button doesn’t work, rewind or forward doesn’t… I mean, how do things just stop working??  What buttons are you guys constantly pressing?

The app now totally crashes every single time you move off of it. You have to close out and reopen. iPhone 12 pro

Based on the now 300 restarts anytime I let the app play in the background, then return either from another app or lockscreen and everything stops playing, the buttons stop working and needs a complete restart, I figure I’d make the same comment after every instance. Copying this text so I can be ready to post again!  This app continues to annoy me, I’ll continue to annoy you. Deal?  Deal.

Based on the now 400 restarts (skipped a few but maybe anytime I let the app play in the background, then return either from another app or lockscreen and everything stops playing, the buttons stop working and needs a complete restart, I figure I’d make the same comment after every instance. Copying this text so I can be ready to post again!  This app continues to annoy me, I’ll continue to annoy you. Deal?  Deal.

Based on the now 500 restarts, (skipping every 100) anytime I let the app play in the background, then return either from another app or lockscreen, everything stops playing, the buttons stop working and app needs a complete restart, I figure I’d make the same comment after every instance. Copying this text so I can be ready to post again!  This app continues to annoy me… so I’ll continue to annoy you. Deal?  Deal.
