Spotify won’t support Google Cast, says use Spotify Connect instead

If you were hoping Google Cast would carry Spotify from your computer to internet-connected speakers, you’re out of luck.

Despite some suggestions that Spotify would be on board, it’s told Pocket-Lint that it’s sticking with its own Spotify Connect system.

A spokesperson said: “As Connect offers a faster experience than other solutions it can provide near-instant response times, and lets users who haven’t invested in new hardware control their existing devices. For example, by using a mobile to control their laptop or tablet.”

Never fear though, many manufacturers will launch speakers with Spotify Connect and Google Cast support baked in. Some manufacturers have already been showcasing them at CES.
