Petition for Spotify to add the RADIO function to the SONOS Spotify Service

Hi all,

 

As a long standing Spotify Premium Subscriber, I like many other's am extremely disappointed that Spotify have as yet failed to make the Spotify Radio functionality available to SONOS users.

 

This issue has been ongoing now since at least January 2013 in the IDEAS section of the Spotify Community forum, see link below:

 

https://community.spotify.com/t5/Spotify-Ideas/Please-Add-Spotify-Radio-Function-to-Sonos/idi-p/2501...

 

There is also a similar discussion on the Sonos Community Forums, see link below:

 

https://ask.sonos.com/sonos/topics/add_spotify_radios_to_sonos

 

I would like to get all of those users from both Spotify and Sonos together in order to petition Spotify to implement what should be a relatively easy feature, that ALL other Music Services seem to have been able to provide to their SONOS users.

 

Please help us to unify our efforts and get Spotify to add the Radio feature to the Spotify Service on Sonos by signing and sharing this Change.org petition.

Many thanks and best regards,

Good idea to start this petition. I signed it and shared the link with Sonos Support. I hope they want to share it with their followers.

 

Cheers!

Thanks for the Kudos and the support, its a bit of a battle to get this out to the right people, so I appreciate your efforts and hopefully the more people that we can get to sign the petition the better.

It just beggars belief that an IDEA that has received 1817 Kudos, does not even seem to warrant an OFFICIAL replay from Spotify. At least Sonos have OFFICIALLY replied stating that the issue is beyond their control and requires action by Spotify, so come on Spotify it really is about time that you gave us your version of WHY this has not yet been implemented?

All other readers should show their support by giving Kudos to this IDEA here on Spotify and then by signing and sharing the petition on Facebook, Twitter etc. The petition can be found at the following link:

I totally agree with you, Mike. An official reply is the least they could give us.

Cheers!

Still waiting for an official reply, but then I really do not think that anyone at Spotify even reads these community posts...

I opened a support ticket about this months ago.

 

This was the response in August 2014:

 

Hey there,

It's an idea that our developers are aware would be very popular but I can't tell you if they're working on it or not, I'm sorry to say.

I hope they'll make it available soon but until then you could try this as an alternative:
 
http://open.spotify.com/app/lazify
 
This app generates long playlists based on similar methods to our radio. You could then use that playlist on your Sonos to listen to a long list of songs chosen based on your input.

Kind regards,

something just occurred to me.

While I would like Spotify to offer a radio API for Sonos, it's not really that big of a deal since radio isn't exactly their strongest feature.

On a per-station basis, the variety is poor. 

It's the same stuff over and over with very little introduction to new appealing music or artists.

Spotify Radio is nowhere near at mature as Pandora.

For Sonos, when I want "radio" I just use Pandora or Songza. 

It stings a little that I pay for a commercial free service that I can't use on Sonos, but the bottom line is my listening is supposed to be enjoyable.  I'm not going to get too hung up on this.

If it were half as good as Pandora, I might actually care.
