Spotify Connect is the most popular feature of Spotify. Spotify Connect allows you to connect any Spotify-enabled device with your smartphone without any Bluetooth connection. When switching from one playing device to another, it is quite practical. Finally, Google’s own music service, YouTube Music, will support this capability on Google Cast-capable gadgets like the Nest Audio.
As noticed by Redditor jmd494 (via AndroidPolice), Opening the YouTube Music app on your phone and starting YouTube Music playback on a Google Assistant-enabled smart speaker will instantly establish a Google Cast connection,
After the app detects that something is playing on a connected device, which takes approximately a second, you may start managing playback on your phone.
This is interesting since it seems almost as natural as if you had started a Cast session on YouTube Music on your phone. You may manage the playback on your speaker using the media controls in Android’s Quick Settings panel, modify the speaker’s volume, or even use the playlist to preview upcoming songs.
This feature has the potential to cause some friction. If you are utilising the same Wi-Fi network and the same YouTube Music account on both, you won’t be able to maintain separate playback functions on your smart speaker and phone. The playlist on the speaker will take precedence over the queue on your phone, forcing you to take over operation of the phone.
According to the reports, the modification is server-side, so you can anticipate a slow rollout to all YouTube Music accounts. If you are using the most recent app version, that would be beneficial. It’s wonderful to see YouTube Music overtake Spotify since it gives customers competitive options.
