My Question or Issue

If I create a Spotify playlist and fill it with music, I can play it through my Echo devices. If I remove the music and add podcast episodes, it becomes undiscoverable, although I can cast it to the Echo from the Android app. Is this expected behavior?

Hi @MarkT322,

 

Welcome to the Community 🙂 

 

We'd suggest you give these steps a go and run a clean reinstall. That way you can make sure the app is up-to-date and the cache is not causing any issues. You can also set Spotify as default device.

 

It's a good idea to try disconnecting the Spotify account in the Alexa App. Then you can log out of the Alexa app and reconnect.

 

Additionally, we recommend taking a look at this article to check if those steps work for you. 

 

Let us know how it goes!
