How to stream Spotify to your new Chromecast

Google Chromecast 2 and Chromecast Audio


If you’ve been following the news from Google today, you probably know that you can now stream Spotify right to your Chromecast. To do this,¬†all you need is the Spotify app and a Chromecast or Chromecast Audio device hooked up to your TV or speakers.

Although both types of devices allow streaming, there is one important difference: You’ll need to be a premium subscriber to play music through your Chromecast Audio.

Here’s how you can get Spotify to stream on your new Chromecast and Chromecast Audio:

  • Make sure that your phone, tablet, or computer is connected to the same Wi-Fi as your device
  • Within Spotify, select a track that you want to listen to
  • At the bottom of the screen, select “Devices Available”
  • Tap on the Chromecast device listed
  • Now you’re listening to the track right from your TV or speaker

Anyone who has the Spotify app and is connected to your Wi-Fi is able to control what’s played on your television, just like when streaming to other devices, like a Sonos.

Keep in mind that only the new Chromecast devices will be able to do this; if you have one of the first-generation dongles, you’ll have to wait at least a few weeks until it receives a firmware update.
