I have never had an issue with my Roku Spotify app before. I am running it on multiple Roku devices (a Roku 3 and Roku streaming sticks). As of today, I opened up the app on the Roku streaming stick and there was no playlist option - just "search" and "what's new". All of my playlists have gone. I am able to view them just fine from my phone app. I uninstalled the Roku app and reinstalled but still no playlist option. Help!!! I have tried the same on my Roku 3 and it still does not have an option to view playlists.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Deezer looks as good as Spotify on a PC. It is supposed to be supported by ROKU in Canada, but I can not find any Deezer channels with any of my 3 ROKU devices. If there was a channel available, I would cancel Spotify immediately. Did Deezer discontinue Roku support? See below.
I just received confirmation from Deezer - they do not support ROKU in Canada (nor the US). In conclusion - there is no proper music streaming app for ROKU. Spotify is crippled, Deezer is not supported at all (nor is Apple Music, of course), Pandora, though supported is not a full featured service. In addition Amazon Prime Video service is available in Canada, though it does not work on ROKU, though it is supported by everyone else including Samsung Smart TV etc.
It might be time to dump my 3 ROKU (and Spotify) devices and get AppleTV 4 new release Sept. this year and Apple music (same cost as Spotify). Interesting that Apple TV now supports even Amazon Prime.
This is pretty ridiculous that Spotify can't solve this problem. It's not a very difficult one to solve. This post was made in March, and there have been zero updates or solutions to the problem. Can something finally be done to solve this?
Is this still being worked on? Is there an anticipation of it actually being fixed? I don't understand the benefit of paying for Spotify if I can't access my account, my songs, my playlists, etc on another preferrred device. We all might as well stop paying just to have it on our phones or one other device then....
My playlists are no longer an option either on Roku - neither is search option under artist or albums - only tracks - this is no good
Everyone seems to agree that the lack of playlists is a a serious problem, but if you look more closely at the search function I think you can search for artist, not sure about album. I think that somewhere albums appear as well. I have not used it lately, as I am in the process of moving away from Spotify and ROKU.
Spotify seems unconcerned about the playlists etc, and I have seen where they make lame suggestions like "well, you can airplay from your device". Well, you can't air play from say an iPhone or iPad to ROKU, only to AppleTV. Besides, air play degrades quality of the music. This is a Swedish company and should be able to do a lot better, considering Sweden's stellar reputation - at least in the past. Your apps for other devices are good, only the ROKU app is not.
Come on Spotify lest competitors start eating more of your lunch. Huddle with ROKU and work out a solution before it is too late - for both companies.
What's the update here Jacob?
These poor bastards(me included) find out you guys pulled the playlists from a forum, not months before they purchased four rokus for their whole home when spotify had support. I love how you jerks take features away, act like its coming back for a few months then everyone realizes they've been duped by you charlatans with no programming skills for multiplatform.
Been using spotify premium for years. VERY inconvenient to lose this functionality. PANDORA is sitting one click over, and it works perfectly....
PLEASE figure it out, update us with progress, and restore full use to the ROKU app. This is a little ridiculous.
This is ridiculous. The Playlist feature is what makes Spotify different and better than other music apps like Pandora, etc. Maybe we should all cancel our Premium subscriptions. That might get their attention!
This is ridiculous. To make matter worse, I just found out that they no longer have an app on Visio TV's either...other streaming options are looking really attractive right now.
Definitely upset with this new “feature”. Paying a monthly premium for fewer options is not a way to keep your customers satisfied, and I am definitely someone who will stop using a good (now demoting to acceptable) product out of principle. Fix it, or lose another customer.
I just finished hooking up both of my sound systems (in my theater room and my living room) and was shocked when I loaded the Spotify for Roku apps on my systems. What a bummer. I canceled my Spotify account and am moving to Pandora. Really unfortunate and quite shocking. I assumed that the Spotify app would far exceed the Pandora app -- I was shocked to discover that the FREE Pandora app is far better than the paid version of Spotify. I'm really disappointed and was more than happy to pay for Spotify Premium until I discovered this. By the time they fix their Roku app, I'll likely have put so much work into building my new playlists that I'll likely not ever switch back. I'm going to do some research and see if there are any other streaming music services that have excellent Roku interfaces.
