I have the exact same issue. Started happening yesterday afternoon and now nothing will case to any of the devices. I have a google audio device, google chromscast, and a google nest hub. I hear a sound like its going to connect and then nothing. The google nest shows the following error
**bleep** thank God i checked here, I thought it was just me but it looks like Spotify broke it once again...Music gets me through my day so can we please fix this, not trying to kill me phone battery by just using my phone to play music. We paid for this service !
Ok so it looks like I'm not the only one having the problem. I am also unable to play music from spotify on my google mini with my iPhone SE (2017). Maybe spotify is having server issues after its update yesterday...?
EDIT: This all started happening yesterday night by the way
Have two Google home devices, both stopped working yesterday afternoon. I am also unable to cast Spotify from my phone to my home devises or my Android TV. Have tried all the tips mentioned to correct the issue, nothing works. Seems like this is a Spotify tech issue, which I hope is addressed ASAP.
