Spotify stops playing on chromecast audio

user-removed
Not applicable

Hello,

 

unfortunately Spotify connects to my chromecast audio with the latest firmware from both my iPhone 6 and my iPad air, but everytime I switch or skip the track, Spotify stops playing and automatically switches to pause mode. Like this, Spotify is basically useless for chromecast audio. Other music streaming services work perfectly fine with chromecast audio. 

 

Thank you for your help, 

Tobi

I have the exactamente same problem. Sometimes It'll play a couple of songs without a hitch, skipping works, but suddenly it stops and it freezes. Have to reconnect the device. Other times It'll play for a couple of seconds and that's it, stops.
This only happens with Spotify too so it's likely between a compatibility problem between the device and the app. I hope they fix it soon.

Same problem here, with an Android device (Sony Xperia Z3 Compact, Android 5.1). The music stops after a few minutes (but with no buffering animation or no "pause" symbol), sometimes goes on after a few seconds/minutes, and randomly stops again, and the connexion gets lost with my phone. Restoring Spotify application on my phone or restoring Chromecast didn't help.

Same problem here... Used to work without a hitch. Since a month or so, Spotify over chromecast audio constantly stops. This renders the Spotify/Chromecast audio combination completely useless... The issue is not specific to the android client device. Also google play music works without any problems. Please fix this!

Same here... Just bought the Chromecast audio in order to stream spotify to my sound system... stops randomely, can't listen to anything. I tried to change the battery saving options of my phone, but it seems that it actually is the chromecast itself that just stops, not spotify.

Same problem here. Chromecast audio works flawlessly with my other streaming services, but Spotify randomly stops and resumes a few seconds later. Please provide a fix for this annoying issue! /Andreas
