Experiencing delay with Spotify when streaming to multiple Airplay 2 devices. Works with Apple Music 

Updated on 2021-08-07

Hello everyone,

 

We apologize for any confusion we have caused. To clarify, Spotify will support Airplay 2. Please continue to use this thread to add your votes and comments.

 

We’ll post updates when they become available.

“Let it go”

 

The problem with that solution is that Spotify’s inability do what they have plainly stated they will do, results in the inability to listen to Spotify content on AirPlay2 devices without constant maddening dropouts. 

AirPlay2 over Wi-Fi is a far superior audio streaming solution to a Bluetooth connection. Everything else supports it except Spotify. I have loads of Apple’s old AirPort Express 2 connected to different hifi equipment around the house. But that’s an old product, so ignore that. Any good TV or Receiver supports AirPlay2. 

The problem is, Spotify’s refusal to do what they’ve said they will do, results in just three possible scenarios:

 

1) Use Apple Music, everything works. 
2) Use Spotify with Bluetooth speakers only, and not enjoy all the expensive Hi-Fi gear I have, or HomePods for that matter - since listening to music constantly dropping out is untenable and soul destroying. 
3) Continue to wait for them to do what they said they would. It seems they’d rather continue to fight in Apple in courts about AppStore rules than provide Apple users a valid alternative to Apple Music. Spotify makes vague claims that Apple is using tricks to push their users to Apple Music, but the AirPlay2 API has been available for them to use since 2018 and they refuse to get it done. This is the number one music streaming platform by far and it cannot multi room stream or even single room stream without dropouts. Just fix it please.

2024 and Spotify with hundreds of employees still couldn’t make AirPlay 2 feature

Time to fix this as you’re done with your childish EU battle with Apple. Time to start acting like grown ups. No one in EU cares whether or not you show pricing in the app so stop acting like it.

HOW is this still not a thing?! The core experience of listening to beautiful music at home is glitchy and garbage because of it.

Spotify please show that you value your paying Apple users and finally implement AirPlay 2 support!
