Hi, I have the same system software as you and in fact the problem only
arose yesterday. In the morning I played an album through Chromecast audio
and in the afternoon /evening no album would cast. Downloaded or otherwise.
So, tried that fix and it worked.... at least it did last night...

This problem is definitely NOT solved! There is a workaround as shared before, but the problem has not been solved at all. Still does not work with albums in the library when browsing from the library. Even when re-adding them to the library, it does not work.

Who marked this as solved?. It's NOT solved at all and the proposed solution is little more than a work around and even then often doesn't work.

 

If you think I'm deleting and recreating 40 playlists and several hundred albums you can think again.

 

Spotify need to sort out the chromecast connect and quickly.

For me, it won't cast my downloaded albums. This stuff is breaking all the time :/

Same here, remove all downloaded songs, re install the app, problem still
there.

iPad works well, Android (Samsung s9) just doesn't work.

Me too!

I have this exact problem with casting downloaded albums.  If its downloaded it won't cast.

 

I guess its a confusion between playing locallly a "downloaded" file from the phones (apps) storage, and when it hands off to the chromecast it doesnt interprit it needs to stream it.

Hi scramblerjim,
I was having it for both downloaded and saved albums. The remove and search
again worked for both. But it appears to be an unstable or variable work
around because some people are still reporting problems with getting that
fix to work. And it's clearly a major hassle if it needs to be applied to
large libraries...

Yeah I agree it's not ideal for large libraries!

 

I swear it used to work well.  Im resisting going to Tidal as my google homes can't use tidal as a default music service. 

 

However Tidal and amazon music seem to be much more consistant in showing all my chromecast devices.  I'd say 70 percent of the time at least 1 or 2 of my devices are missing, but thats a whole other problem.

 

Chromecast and spotify just seems way flakier than it used to be.

 

Solution!
