My Question or Issue

Every few songs/minutes my chromecast audio disconnects from Spotify app and has troubles connecting back in. I've checked the issue and it only happens with Spotify.

Hi there!

I know it sounds simple, but it's often overlooked. Could you try restarting your device? If that doesn't help, try a quick clean reinstall of the app. Just follow these steps.

 

I'd also suggest using an official stable release of iOS, which is iOS 13.3.1 🙂

If you're still having trouble, could you let me know the exact version of Spotify and the exact version of the operating system you're running?

I'll see what I can suggest next!

Hi, I have the same issue.
Rebooting my device and reinstalling spotify app don't help. Also rebooting chrome cast doesnt solve the issue.
Spotify version: 8.5.56.1186

I hear people complain on Chromecast Audio very long time. I think it's Chromecast Audio firmware and Spotify issue. Clean reinstall is not going to help. It's just the only solution moderators here know about.

I have this problem, but on Android, so might not be completely similar. But the only way I have found to get around the issue was to use the Google Home app to share all of the device's audio to the chromecast. In that way the audio hasn't dropped but of course has its downsides that all other notifications and audio is transfered too.

I am having the same issue recently. I have done all the steps with uninstalling, restarting my phone and resetting my Google Mini as well. I still can't even get through a podcast without it cutting out. Is there any solution? I am running on 8.6.57.1164

Regular

Started to happen to me recently as well.

When I cast to chromecast audio, it always disconnects in a matter of minutes. Before it had sometimes hiccups as well, but generally was able to cast for hours. Now it ALWAYS drops after a while - sometimes even during the first song.

I've noticed, that if I just kill the Spotify app on phone without pausing, it doesn't happen at all, and keeps on playing!
So I presume it is actually an issue with the main Spotify app (sender) disrupting the casting, not an issue of the chromecast (or the Spotify's chromecast receiver).

Tested on Oneplus 3, Android 9.

I dont understand why my Spotify keeps disconnecting from my Google devices (Chromecast and Google Nest) I have the new Samsung S20 Ultra aswell. Is there anybody that can suggest how to stop this from happening? It's very annoying. 

 

Thanks in advance
