I have a Spotify Family account for myself and my wife
I have an alexa unit in every room, every unit is using MY amazon account as all the lights and home automation can only be setup on one Amazon account
I want to play Spotify in the room i’m in
My wife wants to play her music in a different room
Both myself and my wife also want to use the home automation whilst playing music, eg, turning on the lights
This can be done using Apple music and Amazon music but Spotify require to swap to a different spotify account for the other person
To swap to a different spotify account means changing the Alexa profile of the alexa device and then all the home automation no longer works from that device.
Please can you allow both myself and my wife to play music in different rooms WITHOUT having to change the Amazon Alexa account
It would be great if I could say ‘Alexa, play spotify from Trevors account’ and my wife could say in a different room, at the same time, ‘Alexa, play spotify from Jackie’s account’
This is not a duplicate of other suggestions, I’ve checked and anything close was raised before the ability to swap alexa accounts was implemented. Swapping alexa accounts is only a work around and is not a solution to this problem.
Many people want this feature and your chat team said I should raise it here
Here is a link to the forum, lots of people are leaving spotify because only spotify do not support this feature, you guys need to catch up
From my research it seems there is talk about Spotify only has one concurrent music stream whereas Apple and Amazon music have multiple streams, but please can you improve on this, the thread above was started over 18 months ago, something should be done to improve on this issue
Again, please don’t write this off as a duplicate and do nothing/say it relates to a 3rd party, people still want this feature
Folks, just a quick update on this.
Spotify say this
The Community team talks with various other Spotify teams several times a month about ideas with over 500 votes (our criteria for being a top idea). It’s from these meetings that we apply one of the following statuses to each idea….
This idea has reached over 500 votes so I asked on chat for timescales/what will happen next and was told to keep an eye on this thread.
That really sounded open ended!
As the person on chat could only deal with app and account queries, I was told to also contact the support team to get action on this
So as well as voting for this issue (please continue),
Spotify need to keep up with Apple and Amazon and fix this issue - with your help we might just get this solved!
