Google Home Mini Not Connecting To Spotify Premium
2
In the past week or so I've had issues with my Google Home Minis - one is a connectivity issue. I've had to reset and connect to WiFi 5 or 6 times otherwise they aren't working. Because of this issue, my Spotify account was disconnected and when I try to reconnect, it is only giving me the Spotify Free option even though I am a premium member.

I've tried: unlinking any music account in the Google Home app, logging out of Spotify, unplugging the Google Home mini, plugging it back in, logging back into Spotify, and relinking the account in the Google Home app, but it STILL is only giving me the Spotify Free option. It's like it doesn't recognize that I am a premium member. I've also confirmed that the account I'm using on Spotify is the same account I'm linking in the app. 

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

I am having the same problem.  I have found many other posts an all different websites.  I have tried all their trouble-shooting tips including:
--unplugging and plugging back in the Google Home mini speaker
--Rebooting the device through the Google Home app
--Unlinking Spotify from Google Home
--Re-linking Spotify to Google Home
--Unlinking the device from my Google account
--Relinking the device to my Google account
--Uninstalled then re-installed the Spotify app
--Logged out of Spotify
--Logged back in to Spotify, ensuring that I have logged in with my Device username (the 9-digit numerical ID and not my email address)
--Linked my Spotify account via the Google Home app using the Device username and password

None of it worked.  The speaker will play other music apps, such as Google Play.  Spotify will play music, just not connect to the speaker.  So each seems to be functioning independently, they just can't communicate.  And yes, they are on the same WiFi network.

The problem started last week where the Spotify app wouldn't connect to the speaker through the app itself, which is how I historically connected.  Since last week, I could still do it, but I had to go through the Google Home app, and click "Play Music" on the device.  Now, today, it won't even do that.  If I click "Play Music" it does nothing.  If I go through Spotify, it attempts to connect (the speaker makes the little sound it normally does at the beginning of the connection) but it never fully connects.  And if I use a voice command, it says "Okay, playing music on Spotify" and then after a brief pause, it says something went wrong and try again.

Has anyone found the resolution yet?

Same issue, started today. Google encountered an error, try again when you can.

But casting works, so... Google works, Spotify works, but streaming Spotify from Google fails.

My Google Home Mini just started having this issue today in the middle of me listening to music. I tried to change the playlist I was listening through the spotify app on my phone and it didn't respond. So I tried the verbal option though the home mini and it just told me there was problem. I have:

-unplugged and replugged my google home mini
-fully reset and set up as new my GH mini
-Unlinked and relinked my spotify account 

It was working up until like 30 minutes ago so that's annoying. They are connected to the same network and although my spotify account is a different address I've been using it without a problem for months. It won't connect though the Spotify app either so I can't use it at all.

I tried all the solutions listed above and nothing worked for me.  I tried unlinking and relinking Spotify.  I tried rebooting the Google nest mini.  Nothing.  Someone above mentioned podcasting, so i made sure Spotify was my default podcasting provider as well as music provider.  That shouldn't make any difference since I'm trying to play music not podcasts.  Then i also created a group for my devices.  Again, should not matter since i only have 1 Google device.  Then i selected the group to play Spotify on and magically it started working immediately.  Will update again if it stops again.
