Spotify is available on almost every popular device we can think of. Each app does virtually the same thing whether you’re listening on a smartphone, computer, or through a smart tv app, but there was an odd limitation for desktop users: You couldn’t cast Spotify to a “Google Cast” device like a Chomecast or a Google smart speaker from a computer —at least, not if you were on macOS or Windows.
The latest version of the Spotify desktop player (finally) fixes this shortcoming. Mac and Windows users can now connect to your Google devices through the Spotify desktop player’s “Connected Device” tab. It’s the exact same process as streaming your Spotify music from your PC to an external speaker.
This fix has been years in the making, but we couldn’t be any more thrilled that it’s here. No longer will you have to start up Spotify on your phone, stream it to your Google speaker, then hop on your computer to continue the interaction; you now can do it all from your desk.
