My Question or Issue
Since the last week, I have been unable to use the Spotify Connect functions from my Desktop app on Windows. The Desktop app also does not broadcast currently playing tracks to 3rd parties (Notably Discord)
- I have preformed a clean-install per the instructions located in the spotify help pages
- I have tried both LAN (Hard wired), Wireless (On the same network as my phone) and have also attempted to use a mobile hotspot / 4g to see if my desktop app would broadcast anything. All have failed
- I've reviewed / reset, re-allowed my firewall settings for Spotify after reinstalling
On my desktop app, I can see my google devices listed (I have 3 google home devices, and 2 chromecast youtube TV apps) however, when attempting to connect, my devices respond but never actually connect and will contentiously reset trying to connect. My phone has zero issues connecting to these devices from the android app.
If I open Spotify on a browser on my laptop, it's able to see my phone / broadcast with no issues, but does not see any google home products (No big deal)
Solved! Go to Solution.
Looks like with the newest version, 126.96.36.1992.g7a9200fe, they have corrected all of the issues I've listed above! Thank you to the quick response and correction from the Spotify technical team, along with the community team for bringing this issue to them as well!
Just update and it should hopefully correct any issues with spotify connect, and broadcasting to other devices such as discord.
