Playing from Spotify desktop to SONOS Connect - gapless playback possible?

Hi all,

 

Is gapless playback possible from Spotify desktop app to SONOS Connect?

 

I'm not talking about Spotify via the Sonos app - just talking about using the official desktop Spotify app

 

Many thanks

Hi @Music2496, thanks for writing!

 

Currently no, gapless playback is not available from Spotify desktop app to SONOS Connect.

 

But since Spotify is always testing new features, let's hope they implement it soon :)

Hi, can I ask how you know and if you are 100%?

 

Reason I ask is because I've seen posts on Sonos forum saying playback is gapless, so I was confused.

 

Do you have a Sonos Connect device?

Hi @Music2496,

 

Yes I use the Sonos Connect with two speakers, and I have my crossfade playback set to 12 seconds. I've just tested the transition between two songs on my computer as well as on both speakers. None of them were able to reproduce the crossfade.

 

I guess it might be something on the Sonos end. Maybe you could get more precise information on their forum?
