I also encountered problems playing Spotify Connect to Chromecast from my saved (but not downloaded) library. Same problem to a Bluesound Node as well. Problem exists using an iPad and Android tablet. Driving me crazy and on the verge of giving up Spotify.
Hi Petersheep, If you are experiencing the discrete problem of albums or I guess playlists not casting then first try removing them and searching for them again and saving. I did that and an album which wouldn't cast now does. Good luck!
Another user who's android spotify suddenly stopped casting last week. Yes all other apps cast fine. Routers restarted all devices restarted.
This is specifically a Spotify issue. Other apps work just fine. Play store littered with recent complains about casting issues on android. FTI I'm on a galaxy s8 plus, august security patch, android 9. using chromecast audio devices and chromecast 2 hdmi.
Spotify please sort this out your customers are complaining. Or maybe it's time to look at Apple Music and we wouldn't want that.
It's like saying in order to be able to restart your car that wont start you must first take out all the engine and interior and then put it back together and it should work.
That is an interesting work around but not one I'm prepared to take at this point. I've about 300 albums downloaded and I'm sure as **bleep** not prepared to re-search and re-download all of them. Let alone the 100+ playlists I've got saved.
This is clearly a spotify issue as other apps cast just fine. Spotify need to sort this out for their paying userbase.
I'm having the same issue as the last replies. Can't cast any albums that are in my library (not downloaded) but can cast the exact same albums when I look up the albums through search. Re-adding to library does not fix the issue. I'm using the latest version of the app on Android 9.
The problem first occurred after a Spotify app update about a week or 2 weeks ago. Re-installing the app or Home app did not solve it.
