Does Spotify works with sound ?

Mirror all apps?
Generally, not. You can try mirror4cast but it doesn't work on all devices and from the video seems to lag heavily.
Google is working on Android device mirroring (the beta is available if you have a rooted Chromecast), but no guarantee it will be supported on a wide variety of devices - we'll have to wait and see.

Spotify, Dolphin Browser, Samsung Dongle
Only apps which specifically support Chromecast or can Share to a Chromecast-enabled app will work with Chromecast. Chromecast is not a replacement for a HDMI output.
Think of it more like a video output accessory that works for supported apps.

If you want to see everything from your device on your TV, one of the many wireless output dongles like Samsung AllCast Share, will work better for your purpose.
Chromecast is an autonomous device (so its output is not limited to the device's screen resolution, nor does it require another device to remain on, unless content is being sent from the other device).

See links in my signature for more info.

You're welcome. Yes, sounds like it, especially if you have lots of media on your device or you want to play games on the big screen, etc.
