Spotify Connect?

hi, I'm trying to work out how to use spotify connect but seem a bit stumped. I wanna to control my ipad from my iphone but the two don't seem to 'connect'. Both have the latest versions of ios7 and spotify loaded and when I go to click on the 'connect' button it only gives me a volume bar for that device and not a list of devices that i can connect to... Is there something im doing wrong here, or is this not supposed to work quite yet. any ideas appreciated!!

 

Cheers

Attention!

Sorry for the lack of communication about this, but as someone suggested earlier in the thread, Connect roll-out is indeed gradual. It's currently at 10% of (Premium) users. We don't want to make any promises about when it'll be available to everyone but you should see it soon enough.

 

Note: it won't be an update so you'll need to keep checking.

 

@nicka99 - while I can't comment on any specific plans outside of devices/partners we've already announced, there's a lot of other cool stuff we can do with it, so watch this space!

 

Edit: forgot to add, Connect hasn't yet launched on Yamaha devices (only Pioneer so far), so you might have a few problems there too. Just a heads up.

Can you confirm this is not an issue with other "connect" capable speakers / receivers? 

 

In that case i will also contact Pioneer. Maybe more of the issues i'm experiencing with "connect"  are related to the pioneer receiver rather than Spotify's implementation.

 

Cheers


I can queue several songs with connect on a Pioneer VSX-923 using an iPhone 5s with version 1.4.1334 of Spotify, edit the queue and have it play correctly after quitting the Spotify app.

Re: Spotify Connect?

Same here, I only get my airplay devices (2 Apple TVs) in the list. I've tried with different iPhones and iPads as well without result... Why is this?

I have the same or similar problem here, instead of the "spotify connect" logo (green speaker icon surrounded by a circle) I get the normal speaker volume icon. Both my iOS devices have the version 0.8.0.57.

 

Any news on this topic?

Re: Spotify Connect?

Spotify Connect is just another rolling-out-wait-till-the-end-of-time feature ;-) nobody knows when it will be available.
It would be great to have official updates on this matter from a qualified source

Re: Spotify Connect?

Well I'm a spotify premium user and I don't have that feature. It' a rolling out feature. Someday I'll be a lucky user like you ;-)

I guess I don't even see in my account.. Or am I delusional about it.

Re: Spotify Connect?

I don't appear to have it either. According to what I have been able to find out, it should be available on iPhone and iPad now, but it doesn't work for me. Waiting to hear back from the Spotify team to see what they think!
