Default [APP][4.0+] Spoticast - Spotify for Chromecast

I just decided to release this to the public. It uses your credentials to make a separate connection to Spotify while listening to media broadcast events sent from the android Spotify client. When one is received it makes a request via the connection for the required metadata and track data. It is then forwarded to your Chromecast to be played. There is a slight delay and a few bugs here and there but overall should be stable enough for a public release. Keep in mind it has not been tested externally until now. You must have a Spotify premium account and you must enable "Device Broadcast Status" in Spotify!

I have no affiliation with Spotify. I think they are a great company who provide a great service but I do not approve of their choice to exclude support for Chromecast. So here it is.



You can find the application in the Google Play store under the name Spoticast.
You can find a post with information FAQ, issues and other discussion on reddit in /r/Chromecast

Enjoy

Brilliant! Been waiting for an app like this, over the moon it's finally here.

One question - Spotify on my device continues to play the tracks, and having to turn the volume down/off is less than ideal... any suggestions?

ATM there is no real solution as we can't control Spotify to mute just it. So you must turn down the volume on the media channel of your device.

Thank you, it works like a charm
Just the problem with the phone playing the song but it is not so annoying.

Great app.

Your screenshot doesn't show up for me. If you have G+ you can get quicker responses over at "Spoticast Support" community rather than here. Sorry, I don't check the thread that often.

Do you plan to release the source code of Spoticast?

I started Spoticast and my RAZR Maxx (4.1.2) immediately rebooted. I did not have a song playing at the time though. I tried it again with a song playing and it did not reboot the device. Thank you for your work on this application, it is wonderful!
