I believe @mros is correct. Spotify Connect on android hasn't been rolled out to 100% of users yet.

Re: Spotify Connect - where is it?

Casual Listener

Me and my girlfriend share one spotify account. Now that i've got spotify connect, I get a notifaction on my phone every time my girlfriend plays music on her iphone. This is super annoying. The only way to stop this is to change to offline mode every time I'm not using spotify myself, but to me this is not a solution. Is there a way to stop our phones from connecting automatically?

Spotify is licensing for personal usage only so under the terms sharing an account isn't allowed. Getting two separate accounts is the only way I can think to do it since its not possible to disable Connect.

Does anybody have an idea which version the Android app must be to enable Connect? Mine is 0.7.6.344 and this isn't yet Connect enabled.

Spotify feature roll outs aren't tied to version numbers (roll outs happen based on usernames in groups).

Sorry, but I think this can't be true. I have a Premium account and use a Mac Book, 2 iPads and an Android phone. On my iPads the Connect feature is available and working, but it isn't on the Android phone. Why, if the rollout depends on the user name?

@Thomas_ - If it is enabled on your account then it should work on all of your devices. Just to confirm your Spotify apps can see each other, in the Mac client can you see your android phone under "Devices" when Spotify is running on it?

Peter, I'm in the same situation as Thomas - Connect enabled on my iPad, but not on any of my Android devices, despite the fact that they're all visible in the desktop client and are on the same wifi network. I tried different networks, even wiped one of the Android devices (my old phone, so it wasn't a problem) and reinstalled Spotify fresh on it, but to no avail.

 

It's been over a week since Connect became enabled on my iPad, but it is still nowhere to be seen on my Android devices. The other community manager said that it's possible the rollout happens per device and not per account. I'm not sure how much contact you guys have with the dev team, but it would be great if you could somehow clarify that. If the rollout goes by account and not by device/platform, then there is most definitely a bug affecting some people.

It is entirely possible that the Connect feature is actually on seperate roll outs depending on which platform you are on, unfortunately, the details of what goes on behind the scenes are pretty shaded from outside eyes, including the Community rock star team. It is unusual though, normally features do go cross platform on accounts at the same time but not surprising in this case thinking about it since Connect on iOS did in fact go live before Connect on android.

@Peter: Yes, I can see the Android device in the Spotify desktop app as well as my iOS devices.
