Sonos Speakers Stop Playback After Current Track

Sonos Speakers Stop Playback After Current Track

Phone: Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge SM-G935V

Hardware version: REV 0.7

Android Version: 7

Security patch level: April 1, 2017


Spotify version: armV7

Sonos App version: 7.2 (build 35339102)

Sonos speakers: Two Play:5 and one Sub



When using Spotify app to play tracks on my Sonos speakers, Spotify stops playing after 1 or 2 tracks have played. Sometimes it stops during playback, sometimes in-between tracks. There seems to be no consistency as to how long it will play before stopping.

Every time Spotify stops playback, I notice the connection to the Sonos speakers has dropped and the phone is now selected as the playback device. I can re-connect to the Sonos speakers under "available devices" and resume playback, but it will again drop the connection to Sonos speakers after a period of time.

Switching to the Sonos app after Spotify stops I can resume playing the track(s) without further problems. The Sonos app will play Spotify tracks without dropping connection, no problems.


I would like to get this fixed as it is simpler to use the Spotify app where I have access to all of its features (Sonos does not have all the features Spotify does, of course).


Thank you for any help

Does anyone else have problems with the Spotify app not being able to connect/play to their Sonos speakers?

Still having the same issue where the Spotify apps just refuses to connect to Sonos and play; this renders the Spotify app useless and the only recourse is using the (very limited) Sonos app to play my Spotify music.
