[Connect] Keep Spotify Connect available for B&O devices

Status: Case Closed

Today I have learned from Spotify support that they have removed Spotify Connect availability for B&O devices, such as my BeoPlay A9 mk1. This is due to business decisions made by Spotify and B&O and will affect all B&O devices.

 

In my case leaving me with a worthless expensive A9 speaker, but I am not the only one.... More on that and replies from both B&O and Spotify support here https://community.spotify.com/t5/forums/v3_1/forumtopicpage/board-id/002/highlight/false/page/3/thre...

 

As Spotify states "You can add suggestions to our Community ideas board: https://community.spotify.com/t5/Idea-Submissions/idb-p/ideas_submissions. Ideas that reach 100 votes are reviewed monthly, so be sure to keep an eye on the status of your idea." 

 

I have invested in an expensive speaker and payed Spotify its monthly fee for over the past years and am stumped this decision has been made so I would love them to bring back that functionality. 100 votes seem to be enough to get this under their attention so please vote....

Indeed, please bring back Spotify connect to beoplay a9 mk1. I see no good explanation to removing connect support on the a1, other than forcing consumers to abandon either Spotify or B&O or throw another fortune towards the mk2 speaker.

Any updates on this? When will Spotify connect support the beoplay a9 mk1 again?

I'm still mad about this. I'm not even affected as I've gotten rid of my now 'expensive furniture'.
