Spotify Connect on Chromecasts

Music Fan

Country UK

Device

Operating System

Android 9 and  Windows 10,etc

 

Chromecast devices briefly connect (2 seconds) and disconnect on Android. Work around for Android is to use the google home app to control volume pause and play. Spotify app shows different tunes playing at different points to the actual music.

On Windows Music stops but app shows as still playing. Required to disconnect from Chromecast audio and reconnect. This takes quite a long time to achieve as the app hangs for a while before connecting.

Since yesterday  16 Oct around 4pm BST.

All apps and firmware up-to-date with latest version

I also have this problem where Spotify can't connect to my chromecast or connects and then immediately disconnects. Other things like netflix and youtube works fine on the chromecast so it's just spotify.

Spotify version 8.5.80.1037 on Android 10
