Spotify Connect Not Working At All

Still got premium. It's worked for months, until today it decided to randomly stop working. I can see only the PS4 on both my iPod and Desktop. This is extremely frustrating as i'm paying for this service and i just sorted out all my tech issues. I've tried logging out everywhere and that hasn't worked. I feel like Spotify might be having issues with their connect system as i'm pretty darn sure it's not my end. It's worked fine for ages and nothing has changed since then.

I just got an update for the PC app and it seemed to correct the problem, But before hand I did reinstall the app on my PC and it started working, the moment I restarted the PC, it did not work between the tablet/phone and the PC again.

But this update seemed to have fixed it on my end anyway.

funny thing is, this actually got mine working again!!!

kinda thanks to your comment!

 

 

Problem with Yamaha RX-V475 (A3C703):

-device visible in Spotify Connect for Android phone and MacBook

-when I click on the device, it displays 'trying to connect...' but doesn't actually do anything

-when I hit play again afterwards, it starts playing on the device I have my hands on

 

 

solution:

-start a song

-click on radio in the upper left

-then click on spotify connect button and connect to the desired device

 

 

sadly, I still can't control it from my Android device anymore :(

 

 

kind regards,

cymetzberger

So I'm not sure why but Spotify Connect does seem to have some issues between devices connected to certain WiFi networks. Earlier I was trying to use my PC to control the music playing through my Android phone, but it either wasn't Spotify-connecting or it would connect without me able to control anything, which was very weird. As soon as I took my phone off the WiFi it seemed to work much better, but the control still seemed to be spotty; I can press pause on the PC to pause the music on the phone, but then it would immediately disconnect the phone. 

 

Idk if there is a way to fix it, it's not even my main WiFi connection so it doesn't bother me that much, just thought I'd share

 I have been having the same issue with spotify not on pc not connecting to my android phone. The only thing i hadn't tried was dissconnecting from my work wifi (the same wifi that my work computer is on) and switched to my cell 4G service (for my phone only). Now it is working with no problems.

I have a Denon AVR-X2300W receiver and Spotify had been working fine with it. I just tried to connect today from my phone and there are no devices to select from. So I tried from my laptop and that can only 'see' my phone but says "Unavailable for listening on" so I don't think it's a problem with my devices. Has there been a recent update that's changed something? I'm on version 8.4.14.439 on my phone.

After my Pioneer receiver stopped working with Spotify in the latest updates, now I can't even listen 1 hour of music via my Chromecast without it losing connection with my Android. Even closing the Spotify App or reconnecting WiFi on mobile doesn't fix it. This connect feature is going worse and worse.

All devices could see each other except for my PC. And the PC did not see any other devices. Uninstalled and reinstalled on the PC and now it's working normally again.

Update: After my PC rebooted it broke again. Did another uninstall/install and it started working again. I then tried to uninstall, reboot, install, reboot. It is now working so I'm not sure if it will break again on next reboot or if that sequence somehow fixed it. I'll update again after next reboot.

 

Another Update after 1 week: No reboot, but it's broken again. Spotify please fix this!

My solution for now is to use the Spotify Web Player. It sees my other devices just fine from my PC.

I also have a Denon receiver, which used to be playable from both my Android phone and laptop, but neither device can "see" it anymore. I've restarted everything, reinstalled Spotify, and confirmed all devices are on the same network, to no avail. FWIW, the receiver isn't visible from the Spotify web player either.

 

I've been a Premium Spotify customer since 9/2013 and I swear each year it gets worse. This is just one more reason, perhaps the last one, that convinces me to switch to one of the many attractive alternatives out there.

I see. Anyone else who is having issues, I suggest you post in this thread so it can get some attention and Spotify can fix the issue.

First time here and just registred for being able to post, and I see registred 2 weeks ago.

  

This is not right, I've had spotify for some years now.

 

Hope they fix it soon, I really really need this feature.

Yep... me too mate. Spotify is no where near as useful to me without it. Hopefully some moderators give us some info... or hopefully Spotify are already aware of it.

same here - i can see my samsung wireless gear under the connect area but it will not connect to anything, the music just plays through my phone/tablet/macbook still (same issue on all 3 devices)

 

it isnt the samsung gear because the samsung app lets me play internet radio over the wireless speakers still.

Spotify connect doesn't work, I cannot see other devices; it's worked for months, until yesterday, and nothing change on my system; I have premium account. I hope this problem will be resolved quickly.
