Does Connect become enabled per account or per device during gradual rollout? It appeared for me finally today, but only on my iPad, none of my Android devices have it and the iPad's Connect interface doesn't list any devices.

 

All of my Spotify apps on all devices are fully updated, all the devices are on the same wifi network and all are visible in the desktop client. One of the Android devices is my old phone, so I wiped the data of the Spotify app there, restarted the app, logged in again, but that also didn't do anything. Obviously the devices are all in online mode and no airplane mode is active anywhere, etc. They all play music just fine (obviously interrupting each other). What gives?

To further test it, I restarted both the iPad and my primary Android phone and also set up wifi hotspot on the phone and connected to it with the iPad - both devices played fine, but still couldn't see each other with Connect.

 

Please don't tell me Connect doesn't work between iOS and Android... That would be completely ridiculous.

Hi. Connect does work between iOS and android so no need to panic. I thought rollout was by account but it seems, from your experiences and those of others that it is in fact by device. Hopefully you won't have much longer to wait.

Connect for Android is still on beta I think. Have you registered via the beta forum?

It might be why you haven't got it?

I too would like to see (or know if it already exists) a way to control another android device's Spotify Connect volume from another android device. There is a volume slider that is briefly visible which gives me hope that volume will be baked in to the application. I want to use an old tablet as a spotify hub but also dont want to have to walk over to adjust the volume. #firstworldproblems

Wondering is it actually possible to control operating system level volume options remotely though (since Spotify doesn't have its own built in volume control)? I would imagine it definitely isn't possible on iOS.

For me the volume slider works in two scenarios

 

1. On the device which currenlty is playing, iphone or android

2. If the stream is played on a "connect device" such as my Pioneer AV-receiver.

 

So when the stream is transferred from my Android phone to my Android tablet, the volume slider disappears from the phone and is only available on the tablet

I have two Android devices with Spotify 7.6.343 running on both.. Neither shows the Spotify Connect ability. Wasn't this launched several months ago? Am I really supposed to just wait here for a rollout that will come at some unknown time?

I think this is covered on the forum, but I think it needs to be enabled by a Spotify Connect device, e.g. a receiver, internetradio or similar. When connected to such compatible device, Spotify Connect will be enabled, and then it is enabled without the use of such device, so it can be used between two mobile devices for instance
