Laptop: Windows 10
Software version: 188.8.131.523.g15c26ea1 (Windows Store version)
Echo: Amazon Echo Dot
I had an issue recently where Spotify would not start up when launched. It would keep closing just before it finally displayed the home Spotify screen. I uninstalled Spotify, rebooted my laptop and then installed the latest version of Spotify.
Now almost everything is working great for Spotify Connect. I can play Spotify music on my laptop and play it from my Echo's speakers. I can skip forward and back but I cannot control the volume of the echo from my laptop anymore.
When I do the keyboard shortcuts for the skip forward/back the song that is playing is displayed in the top left of the screen like before along with the volume indicator. When I do the keyboard shortcut to raise/lower the volume, the only volume that changes is my laptop speaker volume (which is not in use as music is playing on the echo).
I have tried to change volume from the Windows 10 taskbar (the speaker icon used to have a drop-down box to choose the Echo, but no more) but it only lists my laptop speaker now. If I connect headphones, the drop-down box will then list the headphones while they are connected.
I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get this feature working again.
I know it's not via Bluetooth as I attached the echo that way and that simply redirects my laptop system sounds/speakers output to the echo, which is not what I want.
What the duck am I missing??
