Seing since it's something that your customers have been inquiring about
for 4 years now, will it be a feature that is being developed?

I'm not Spotify - just a frustrated user like you. Someone told me it works on google music but I haven't tried it yet.

I think spotify is missing the point. I would liket to be able to play a playlist from my pc in that room while playing the same playlist in the kitchen through my bose sound touch. Its not like two seperate users want to use it, its one user wants to play it throughout the house. Spotify should concentrate on only allowing one IP address at a time rathter than how many speakers are connected.

I agree as well, this is my point.  But I'm not sure this is just about licensing, it's not magic there isn't a big red button labeled allow mutliple devices.  Someone has to code this for the application, network and application delivery.   

 

To restate my request/question on this...  I would like to have the ability to group my devices connected to spotificy and play to multiple devices at the same time.  As an example, in the summer time, it would be great to have a bluetooth speaker outside, one in my kitchen/living room area and one in my lower level living area.  That way I can from room to room, outside and still hear the music.  I'm asking if Spotify can accomplish this.

I just subscribed to Spotify this month and this is my biggest disappointment. They should be able to adjust the player to allow multiple receivers on a single play stream! Since the world has gone to wireless speakers either over network or Bluetooth, Spotify needs to step up to the plate. They are linked up with Bose and Bose hopes we will buy more than one wireless speaker. I'll bet iTunes will play over multiple devices over airplay.

Yes Itunes does, but bose doesnt have airplay receiving capabilities
anymore.. It was removed against popular demand and replaced with stupid
short range blue tooth.
The problem with airplay is you have to have airplay receivers or
individual apple devices..
There is a program for pc that can receive airplay called airfoil, but
it doesnt have sync capability, so you hear the same thing just at
different times.
I spent several hundred dollars on gramophones that are loaded with
problems and very buggy. Yet I have to keep paying spotify if I want to
be able to use more than one buggy gramophone at a time..
At least make the gramophones work right, it sucks when I play it loud
to have the gramophone that I am listening to cut out and then the music
come blasting back on, sounds like I have a piece of **bleep** system to the
neighborhood

No. Spotify can NOT and WILL NOT do that. You will have to PAY MONEY
before your discussion can move any further than no.. AFTER you PAY
MONEY, then you may be able to buy devices for A LOT OF MONEY that will
stream to receivers at the same time in sync with bugs.
