When I cast my music to my new VIZIO smartcast TV with built in Chromecast, my playlist stops after each song. I have to hit next on my phone or laptop every time. What is happening here? Is there a compatability issue?
Same problem here! Got a Vizio M-series 50" and when I ask my Google assistant to play Spotify on my living room display it will load Spotify on my Vizio just fine, play one song and then stop. Super annoying since it's the second reason why I bought this TV.
It isn’t, I have another Chromecast on a separate TV that works fine as well as google home mini that also plays continuously. I’ve also tried it on Apple TVs and it works fine. It is specifically Vizios Chromecast.
Vizio is saying it isn’t there problem since “all other apps are steaming correctly”
Thanks Ajmckeon for getting back to us with this valuable information!
I can see at the bottom left of the screen on the main menu (where you can see the list of apps) the following string "1.1.171220.8406 | 18.2" but this doesn't seem to match the version format you are referring to.
How can I tell which version of the Chromecast firmware is installed on my Vizio SmartCast TV?
Oh I see, the "menu" button on the remote control. Thanks!
I have "Cast Version: 1.22.78594" too...
I guess this is the risk with built-in Chromcast controlled by 3rd parties like Vizio (i.e. not Google) is that they have to get their engineers to upgrade the Chromecast version after Google releases a new one. Maybe the best fix right now is to simply get a $35 Chromecast from Google? It's disapointing but this one will always be up-to-date.
Similar issue here. The songs will play in sequence but I can't skip or go back using the phone. I have a Vizio E60-E3. iOS 11.2.5. Seemed to be working fine late 2017. When selecting Spotify from the Vizio SmartCast app it says "Couldn't Open Link" - Spotify can't open this type of link on this device.
