My Question or Issue

 For a while now, none of my Windows PC's will detect my phone as an option to connect, and vice versa. This used to work between different internet connections too (cell and wifi, for example), but now even on the same wifi network it does not show up. I've tried clearing cache, reinstalling, not sure what's up.

Hi there,

Strange your phone (or PC) is listed as an option to connect (from the opposite device). Spotify connect is meant for "dumb terminals" - things like cars, speakers and other sound systems.
Check out the list of Spotify enabled gear here.

The way you're using it, you're kind of 'confusing' the Spotify app. It'll detect it's listening on another 'smart' device like a PC or smartphone and will cut the connection on the other device because you can only use your Spotify account for one terminal at a time. Speaker systems are a different story.

 

Hope this clears things up?
