My Question or Issue

After the recent Spotify updates my Aether Cone speaker is no longer displayed in the list of devices. I have tried with 3 different phones.

I have done a factory reset on the speaker, restarted my phone etc.  The speaker does still work with bluetooth, but this is not a great experience compared with Spotify connect. 

Would someone be able to help at all?

Hey there folks,

 

We've seen reports that you're having troubles seeing your Aether Cone speakers on the Connect picker. We really appreciate taking the time to report this here in the Community.

 

We've passed this on to our tech teams who will be looking into it. If you're also experiencing this issue, make sure to add your +VOTE if the issue persists after trying the following:

  • Perform a clean reinstallation of the app: pick your device and follow the steps provided in this Spotify Answer
  • Turn your WiFi off. Wait 30 seconds, then switch it back on. If that doesn’t work, try restarting your router.If possible, try it with a different WiFi network.
  • Try a different network connection. If it works with another connection, we recommend contacting the service provider of the original network for more information.
  • Make sure your device(s), Spotify and Aether app are all up to date with any updates

If that doesn't help, please let us know the following details (if you haven't already) so we can pass them on:

  • The device(s) and their OS version 
  • The exact version of the Spotify app on each device
  • When did this started happening?
  • Can you still use your Aether Cone via Bluetooth?

We'll keep you updated here, thanks!

Quite annoying, hopefully this wasn't a permanent API change, as the cone isn't going to get updated...

Spotify Connect does not work. Spotify android client is unable to detect Aether Cone in the network, Spotify client version 8.5.21.754 and V8.5.20.857. After downgrade to V8.5.18.932 issue disapear, it appears there is a bug in latest versions.
