During the big Nexus event today, Google announced that Chromecast is finally getting updated to support Spotify. Spotify support is rolling out to the newly-announced Chromecast and Chromecast Audio starting today, while support will come to older Chromecast devices over the next few weeks.
Moreover, Spotify will be able to immediately detect what other devices are currently playing on the Chromecast network and synchronize at the same spot in the playlist, making the music experience much easier to use with multiple devices. For example, if your friend’s device is connected to your Chromecast network at home and you’d like to start controlling their playlist from your phone, you can. Simply open the Spotify application, make sure your home network is selected, and your device will be able to control the playlist that’s currently playing. Pretty cool, right?
Google took the wraps off its second-generation Chromecast and new Chromecast Audio hardware earlier today, and you can find all of that information by following the links below.
