Samsung Soundbars fully support Alexa with Spotify

Hello,

 

I am an otherwise happy owner of an Samsung HW-Q900A soundbar (with Dolby Atmos). There are many owners that are not happy about the missing functionality of playing Spotify with the in the soundbar built-in Alexa. Alexa just says that Spotify is not supported on this device when you ask Alexa to play something on spotify.

 

Amazon Music with Alexa works with a Amazon Music unlimited subscription or Amazon prime.

 

There are really many users that are frustrated about this. Many more are not reporting it as they can see others have failed getting it working. See here for some examples:

I would really appreciate if Spotify could get this working.

Kind regards Christian

I am a lucky owner of Samsung Soundbar HW Q-900A it works great with Amazon Music and I think it should work with Spotify Connect. I would much appreciate your help!
