Every time I cook I open up Spotify change the devices an listen on my google nest and even before that I would use my google home. today when I open the app these devices are all greyed out excluding my Sonos soundbar (i don't know why) saying premium only next to it. not to mention google still says I should be able to do this with a free account and if I open Spotify play music then open google and select the devices I would have selected through the Spotify app it still works as it used to along with telling google what to say or do on Spotify.
iPhone 8 plus
My Question or Issue
Why add a paywall like this to the app? but leave it free for other platforms (going through the google home app). Am I the only one that feels this is cash grab to force-free users that don't mind the huge increase in ads since they joined? I know I'm not the only one that got the "thanks for listening to Spotify you could have listened to the radio but you use Spotify thank you" this doesn't feel like thank you this feels like a smack in the face and no one seems to have answers about it other than go buy premium if your gonna force premium then don't even have a free option make it premium only and be done with it
