Any updates, Spotify? It's been at least 2 months now.

I have have a similar issue as well.  I like listening to Roku in our vehicle, as do my daughters.  We now have a ROKU streaming stick and it is upsetting that we can't use it in the house.

This may lead me to find another solution to listening to music in the house.

I had the same problem issue and Spotify's unwillingness to answer our questions in this forum, or fix the issue. I fixed this myself by canceling Spotify and switched over to YouTube Red. Works on all devices.

I'm about to switch as well. Should have any songs that have been uploaded to YouTube.

Basically, Spotify for Roku has been killed.  The official position on this offers no certainty that anyone is even working on it, says playlist were "removed" (i.e. an action was taken, not a bug), and without this feature not many people who have built their music listening around Spotify will use it on Roku.  I won't.

So, Spotify removed Playlists from their Roku Channel.  However, there is a suggestion for them to implement either "Cast To" or Spotify Connect.  Please go there and vote it up! It needs votes badly.

Hello. I am disappointed to learn that Spotify playlists are no longer available via ROKU. I upgraded to Spotify Premium so I could listen to my music over high end tower speakers on my ROKU equiped stereo system. I was willing to put up with the very clunky app since I could access my Spotify playlists. Now I can't even mirror my playlists from another device. And after searching various forums it appears that there is no current plan to remedy this situation. In addition, I never recieved any kind of proactive notification about this change which, given my use of ROKU to access Spotify, I would have thought could have been done in a targeted fashion. A poorly thought out approach to customer service IMO.

I am left to wonder why I am now paying for premium service. I think it's time to research how to convert my Spotify playlist to Pandora, and change my subscription.

I just cancelled my premium subscription due to this issue.  This seems like it should be a relatively simple fix if Spotify truly cares about it, but it is apparent they do not due to their lack of responsiveness to customer concerns about the loss of this feature.

 

This was the feature most often used by my family and without it a Spotify subscription is no longer worth it.  If Spotify addresses the issue and restores this feature to their Roku App, I will likely renew our subscription.
