Chromecast keeps disconnecting (IOS)

Casual Listener

Plan: Premium

Country: Sweden

Device: iPhone (several) + Chromecast (several)

OS: iOS 10

 

My Question or Issue

When playing the Chrome cast unit stops playing after 1-10 minutes. On the phone the music is paused. If pressing play the music continues on the phone. To play on Chrmoecast again I have to reconnect from the Spotify app. The amount of time it plays appears random but is typically about 2 minutes and pretty much never mote than ten minutes. It is the same on both my Chroma cast units (1 Video, 1 Audio) and from four different iPhones. Problem started late 2019, maybe in November.

 

I do not have these problems with other providers/apps such as SVT, SR, Netflix, Viaplay, or I like radio.

Same here: using Android 10 smartphone. Spotify on the Chromecast just quits after a few songs (can be 2, can be 10, no pattern observed) and on the phone the playback is paused and playback device has moved back to phone.

Same issue here. I am using Spotify app on Windows 10 PC and Spotify app on Android 9 LG G8S smartphone and casting to a marantz SR6010 receiver. Connection drops and sometimes resumes without any action or I have to chage casting to local and back to receiver to get the sound back. Receiver and phone a windows OS are all update with latest software or firmare.

 

It's very frustrating issue since I got the premium account to get the best experience. 

Hope someone here is getting into this problem and trying to solve it.

Minor update. I had poor performance in my intranet. After rebuilding it I may have experienced a slight improvement with Spotify. I read that installing the app might help and for the first day it seemed it did but that was just temporarily. But now I have a NEW PROBLEM when Spotify disconnects Chromecast is no longer in the list of devices to connect to and I have to restart Spotify to get it back. In all it still sucks.
