My Question or Issue

Trying to connect Spotify to Chromecast from Android OS apps does not work. The Chromecast option can be seen but can not be selected. Underneath it says something like "Can not be played right now" (direct translation from Finnish) or such. I've reset and re-installed Chromecast, we have the latest Spotify updates and have also tried switching things on and off again. This has been an ongoing issue for a month or so and it is starting to get REALLY frustrating. The latest update at the end of June got things working for a few days and now we're back to NOT WORKING. Everything else works and connects just fine with Chromecast, so it is not a connection issue. It's the Spotify app.
