Enjoy Spotify on Your Chromecast with Spoticast

A few years ago, not many people expected that music would be streamed from the Internet legally. Then came services like Spotify, which allow users to stream music on various devices. It’s officially available for Windows, OSX, Linux (outdated, but still), and on almost every mobile operating system. The one device that is missing on this list is the Chromecast—well, “was” missing.

Thanks to XDA Forum Member NOPDevelopments, Spotify can be used with the Chromecast. Spoticast is an unofficial port of Spotify and was made without any official affiliation. To try it on your Chromecast, you need to have a premium account and enable “Device Broadcast Status” in the application. Spoticast fully integrates with your screen, so you can see album art and the progress bar directly in high quality. It’s an early release, so not everything will work as expected. For example, there’s a slight delay and few bugs that still need to be squashed, but having Spotify on Chromecast is great nevertheless.

If you are using Spotify often and want to use it on your Chromecast, make your way to the applcation thread and give Spoticast a try.
