Devices with Chromecast will be listed with the Google Cast icon underneath them, as you can see enlarged in the photo above. So there you go — you’ve Chromecasted Spotify successfully. If cast to a TV, your music should start playing on the big screen after a few seconds. You’ll then be able to control the music from your smartphone or desktop remotely.
Please note that if you’re using Android 12, you won’t be able to adjust the volume controls from a smartphone. Instead, you’ll have to fish your TV remote out of your couch’s crevices to adjust the volume. Learn more about the legal dispute here.

If a Chromecast device other than a TV isn’t showing up in the Spotify app’s list of available devices, you may need to try connecting via the Chrome web browser. For whatever reason, Google tends to have an easier time recognizing services within its ecosystem.
- Launch the Chrome web browser from your desktop.
- Next, go to the Spotify web player, Log in and play a song.
- Cast this song through the Chrome web browser to your Chromecast audio device.
- Next, open the Spotify app on Android or iOS.
