I seem to have found a solution for myself. Check my post for details to see if it can help solves yours:
https://community.spotify.com/t5/Accounts/Spotify-account-not-working-with-Chromecast/m-p/4693143/hi...


"I think that I've found a work around. I was able to sign into my account from another device and cast from that device. Once that was done, without any modification to the account on the original device, or Google Home, I was able to cast again using the original device, including the Google Home.  Note that logging out and in, completely reinstalling the application on the original device, or unlinking and relinking my spotify account the the Google Home wasn't able to fix this issue. Maybe it forced something that was bugging out on the account. This has resulted in me being able to cast again on all devices, but the account is still giving me occasional issues where it will still be finicky with casting in general. Thought I'd post in case it can help anyone else having a similar issue. "

Hi just found this thread and viewed the other. I’m having the same issue with casting to a group of speakers I created in google home.  It worked at first then it stopped and will not connect only sporadically then stop

I have the same problem. It starts connecting and then it doesn't, no error message. This is through the Spotify web app on Chrome, which until today worked fine. (Although intermittently the connection would drop and I never found a resolution to this.) I had to go through my iphone to get spotify to cast.

Hi

I still haven’t gotten any updates on this and it’s really frustrating. I pay for a family plan but can’t even listen to music the way I want because the app drops out all the time when using cast ( this is only way for me to play music on multiple speakers at once).
Can someone provide an update ?? Should I just switch to Apple Music ? Don’t want to keep paying for something that won’t work.. what’s the point
