HI All, I cannot still see the connect icon in my android devices, but I can see it in the IOS devices and using it, with the same premium account.(Iphone, Ipad and Ipod)

 

No other connect hardware.

 

Any idea how can I make it avalaible also in my nexus7?

 

thanks in advance

Question: Will it be possible to connect my Android device with my Windows based Spotify Desktop client? The support page seems to be incomplete in this regard. What devices can connect to which other devices? I understand that Spotify wants to push the new hardware, but why should I buy some expensive "connect" supporting hardware, when I allready have all the functionality with my classic HTPC setup?

 

There should be a list of some sort:

 

You can connect the following devices:

- From iOS/Android-App to supported speakers/receivers (this seems to work for most people allready)

- From iOS/Android-App to any other iOS or Android-App (same WiFi network)

- From iOS/Android-App to any Mac/Windows desktop client (this would be my prefered connection)

- From iOS/Android-App to any active Web Player (this would be the most universal connection)

 

The following versions are required to enable the connect feature:

- iOS: 

- Android:

- Desktop client:

 

Due to beeing a rollout feature you may have to wait for the option to appear. At (DATE) every Premium member is expected to be able to use the connect feature.

Dear Peter

 

Is there a way to get updated ASAP? I mean as I am paying for spotify and I really can't see why I still don't have this button on my devices. Very bad customer service if you offer something but then not even all your paying customers receive it within a reasonable period of time...

 

Cheers,

Ueli

There's no way to speed the rollout - just be patient. It is only rolling out to premium customers anyway so you're not alone. At least we're not being asked to pay extra for this new feature.

Dear Joe

 

I have to strongly disagree with you. First: paying extra would be ridiulous as it should be a very basic feature. Second: I understand that not everyone gets it on the same time but one should be able to sign in to a waiting list (and therefore only those really needing this feature will get it first). Third: The overall rollout (for all premium users) shouldn't take more than around 2 weeks. Otherwise they should have called it BETA.

 

I have to say that not getting this extra while others have it makes me a very angry customer. I currently use two phones, one tablet and a laptop. Therefore this feature would make my life much easier and not having it while seeing others telling me how good it is really sucks.

 

Kind regards,

Ueli

Same issue here with my Yamaha RX-V675 : even with the latest update I can't play Spotify from my Android device. what a shame: this is actually one of the reasons why I bought that receiver !

 

And as far as iOS is concerned it's hard to tell whether this is Airplay or Spotify Connect ... when I launch it from my iPad the Receiver sees it as "Airplay": I have no way to check whether the music is actually streaming from my iPad or directly from Spotify connect to my Yamaha...
