I noticed today that upon casting spotify to my chromecast (video, version 2), Spotify would successfully cast to the tv and play music but then would disconnect so I lost all ability to control the music playing from the speakers.
I can still control through the Google Home app/ google notification controls so I don't think this is a chromecast/google related issue.
My chromecast was on the beta program and I since rolled back to the non-beta in an attempt to fix but to no avail.
Thanks for letting us know. It's good to hear it's sorted.
