Can't connect to Chromecast Audio


Apple iPhone


Operating System Version:

9.3.1 (buikd: 13E238) 


Spotify Version:

Spotify app



Not able to connect the spotify app to Google Chromecast. Problem started two days ago. I get the "connecting" sound it makes when it tries to connect, but then nothing. And songs continues to play on phone, and there's no stream on the Chromecast.


To reproduce:

  1. Start Spotify
  2. Select Song
  3. Choose Device "Chromecast"
  4. Silence...

Hey all! 


Thanks for all your reports here and for helping us out. As we haven't seen any recent posts we're going to go ahead and close this thread.


If you're still having issues then please try the following;


- Restarting your device, and then reinstall the app
- Check for firmware updates on your Chromecast
- Restart your network router.
- Make sure that your Chromecast is connected to the same WiFi network
- Ensure you're not using a VPN


These all should help 🙂

Problem: Spotify connected to chromecast audio -> Whenever you skip one or more tracks it loses the connection to the chromecast audio and you have to reconnect it.


Same problem since months and it seems like nothing is being done about it

Hey @mrmanson666, welcome to the Community!


Can you let us know if the issues exists only with Spotify or if you also experience it with any other apps on your Chromecast device?




Hi @Alejandro_C


Thank you for the reply. Unfortunately I have to say it's Spotify only

Thanks for letting us know!


Just to confirm, have you tried deleting and reinstalling the app on your Chromecast device? Also, is it possible for you to try using a different connection for troubleshooting purposes?


We look forward to hearing back from you. 


@Alejandro_C yes, tried deleting and reinstalling the app a few times on my mobile. it's not possible to install an app on a chromecast device.


I'll see if I can try a different connection. But a lot of people suffer from it so it can't be just my connection.


Same issue here, widely reported.


On a OnePlus 3 here, affecting all my Chromecast Audio devices.


Hey @mrmanson666, thanks for the extra info.


Just to confirm, do you have installed the latest firmware on your Chromecast device?


@chrishyder Let us know if trying a different Internet connection works. Let us know what device and operating system you use. We'll see what to suggest.


Keep us posted.


Hi guys


Different router produces the same results.


This affects my OnePlus 3 handset, iPhone 6S Plus and iPad.
