My life's too short to wait for the **bleep**tards at Spotify to fix their **bleep** app. I can see people are still commenting on this issue, so it's obviously important to us users.
 
For what it's worth:  My solution was to buy a ChromeCast Audio.  It's relatively cheap and it Just Works.
 
This is the closest to a working solution as it gets.

Are you a premium user? Spotify Connect is a feature for premium users only.

Hi there,
Welcome at the Spotify Community!

 

Have you already to tried to logout and login afterwards? Sometimes something simple as this already fixes the problem.

Otherwise, you may try to fix this issue by reinstalling Spotify at your Android device.

I think it depends on the device. My iOS devices can remotely control the volume of a connect enabled speaker but not the volume on other iOS devices.

Yes, that's what I think as well. I just tried it with my iPhone and Nexus 7 (tablet) with the result:

 

iPhone can't change volume of Nexus.

Nexus can change volume of iPhone.

 

I tried the volume buttons and was looking for a volume button in the corner down right but there was none.

 

So It's a mystery which devices can control the volume and which not..

As I said before I'm able to control device a with b but not vice versa. Did you try to control both devices or just one way (a with b and not b with a)?
