Hi Konaduval, 

Have you checked to make sure you have the latest version of Spotify downloaded? If yes, open the Spotify app on your phone and start playing something. After selecting a song tap the speaker icon, its in the bottom corner of your screen. A list of device options should appear and you just select the speaker you want to cast to, make sure that your phone and the speaker are connected to the same WIFI network or are paired via Bluetooth. You should hear your music playing from your selected speaker. 

Let me know if this fixes your issue.

  4. To choose your default service, tap the music service you'd like to use. Assistant will use this service when you say “Hey Google, play music.”
    If your music service isn't listed, make sure you've download the app and signed in.
  5. Under More music services, you can link and unlink other available services. Tap a service to link or unlink it.
