Only "Normal" audio quality when streaming to Spotify Connect / Google Cast!

Only "Normal" audio quality when streaming to Spotify Connect / Google Cast!


Spotify Premium - USA

device: JBL Link 300 - Google Cast-enabled speaker=





there is only Normal audio quality when casting to Spotify Connect / Google Cast.


Due to COVID most of us are listening on our speaker all day instead of headphones. But the audio quality is noticeably worse than via mobile/desktop!! 

This is a major disappointment. Can we please get the support for Very High quality when streaming to cast?


Can we please get an update from the engineering team on when this support will be available?


Thanks so much,

Hey @or3n, thanks for reaching out to the Community!

I'm afraid this feature isn't possible at the moment, but I could see how this can be useful. You can always create a new Idea about this here, and I'll also pass your feedback on to the right folks.

I'll be here if you need anything else!

Is there any update on when spotify connect will have it quality increased. I have found some songs seems to be playing at c96kbps instead of 256 or 320. Chromecast seems to increase the quality so its clearly a spotify issue not a google one.

Apple music plays at high quality via google home, so why isnt spotify?
