My Question or Issue

hi all

I have a KEF LSX wifi speakers that worked like a charm with Spotify ... Till last Spotify update 😣 done on my Android phone.

Now my speakers are no more detected whatever the action I do (restart speakers and/or Spotify, start/stop wifi ...).


Issue is not at speaker or wifi level because when using Spotify (an older version) on my iPad it works perfectly.


Please not that once done, Spotify on my mobile is then able to detect the speakers !!


Please fix this issue that prevent user enjoying his equipment

Having the same problem as of today - worked fine until then. Not recognising the speakers as a device at all.

Hey there,


Thanks for reaching out about this in the Community!


First, we'd recommend making sure of the following:

  • All devices need to be on the same WiFi network in order to show up on the Spotify Connect picker.
  • All devices’ software is up-to-date. If you don't know, check with your devices' manufacturers for how to update the version software. 

If you haven't already, we'd recommend rebooting all your devices and giving it another try to see if that helps.


On another note, @Ndelucin, you mention that your Spotify version is currently Just to confirm, does this issue persist after updating the app on the latest version on your device? You can follow the steps in this support site article to do so. 


Let us know how it goes! We'll be right here if you need more help.


Have a lovely day :)

Finally I've discovered that if I am in off-line mode with spotify app eg. on iphone, the wireless speakers are not visible among airplay devices, so I can play them only via bluetooth. If I want to use wifi and airplay (which gives much better sound quality), I have to switch to online mode in the spotify app.
