[Samsung] Connect for Samsung TV

Status: Implemented

I'm so disappointed with the quality of the Spotify app for Samsung TV and Roku devices. Clunky doesn't even begin to describe it. Yet, with YouTube I can seamlessly stream any video from my Android phone to either device in seconds and by simply clicking a cast button in the upper right hand corner. I'd really appreciate it if Spotify would upgrade to include the same kind of connectivity with these devices. I simply can't understand why this feature does not already exist. Because it doesn't, I'm considering whether I should cancel my subscriptiona and find another service that does what I want.

 

Thanks.

Fed up that I can't listen to Spotify on my Samsung TV. Past of the reason I signed up to this was to be able to play music through my sound system. Very disappointing.

At least Spotify Connect should be available. Can´t be that hard.

Is this a problem at the Spotify side or Samsung side? Because I really miss the connect and think I will stop premium if there will be no report of Spotify that it will be made available.
