I tried to watch Joe Rogan on Spotify but it wouldn't let me chromecast the video to my TV so I returned to Youtube. I hope they fix this before exclusivity starts.

Hey there folks,

 

We really appreciate your reports about having troubles to see video content of podcasts when streaming through a Chromecast device.

 

We've passed this on to our tech teams so that they can look into this.

 

If you're also experiencing this, make sure to add your +VOTE and leave a comment below with the following details:

  • Details on your Chromecast device for example, its firmware version
  • Is this only happening when using a Chromecast device? If not, it'd be helpful to include any relevant details of the device and Spotify app version you're on.

We'll keep you updated here, thanks!

@Katerina 
Hi there, for me I have the exact same issue, but not on a chromecast but on android for TV. I am not sure if this is the same app.

 

My specs are:
A Sony 49XF9005 TV
Spotify version 2.58.2-2312c42-v2.102-2-gd1be29c HEAD-v3.134.19-gf1da4a00 1.33.0.15

Argh...I have no idea how to check my Chrome cast version, or ISP version. I just installed Spodify about 2 weeks ago...So I must have the latest version.

This is happening with Chromecast and brand new 4k Firestick. My Tv is Sony Bravia with Chromecast and Samsung with which I am using the new 4k firestick.

Same. Spotify only casts audio.

 

Spotify is making a huge mistake because a large portion of JRE views come from people that enjoy watching it on a TV (like myself) instead of a tiny phone screen.

 

I really hope Spotify fixes this quickly.

Hey again folks,

 

Thanks for bearing with us while we were looking into this!

 

We've heard back from the right teams that currently we don't support this functionality through Chromecast or when using Spotify Connect. This would explain why you're having troubles viewing the video content of a podcast when using a Chromecast device to cast to a TV.

 

With this in mind, we've moved this thread back to the Help boards and marked this post as the solution so it's more visible for users looking for more help about this. 

 

However, if this is something that you'd like to see in the future, we'd recommend adding your +VOTE and feedback to support this idea. For more details on how ideas from the Community can get implemented, we'd suggest taking a look at this Spotify Answer

 

We hope this is helps clarify things but don't hesitate to give us a shout if there's anything else we can help with.

 

Have a lovely day 🙂

How can you not support video streaming? Spotify just spent $100 million to
get the biggest youtube podcast in the world, I would assume that this
would be a priority to fix?
