The first-generation Chromecast now works with Spotify

by John_A

Chromecast

Google announced a few weeks ago that Spotify support would soon be coming to the first and second-generation Chromecast media streamers. Spotify was updated about a week ago with support for casting to Google’s new Chromecast and Chromecast Audio devices, while the first-gen device needed a firmware update to be compatible with the music service.

If you’re an owner of the 2013 Chromecast and would like to stream your music from Spotify, you now can. The new firmware update should have already rolled out to your Chromecast. If it hasn’t, a simple reboot will do the trick.

Now that Spotify works with Chromecast, the app will automatically be able to detect what other devices are currently playing on your Chromecast network, and synchronize at the same spot in the playlist. So if your friend’s device is connected to your Chromecast and you’d like to start controlling their playlist from your phone, you can. All you need to do is open the Spotify app, select your home network, and your device will be able to instantly control the playlist that’s currently playing.

Download Spotify from Google Play
