Operating System

spotify on IOS and ipad pro and macbook pro high sierra

 

My Question or Issue

When i play spotify app on any device through sonos, if set the volume 1 increment./ 'click' from muted its too soft, 2 clicks from muted its almost loud enough, 3 clicks too loud, 4 clicks ridiculous. There are what...50 clicks? Point is volume is far too high for the slider and there is no semblence of fine tuning.

 

I have several other devices/inputs to sonos where the volume is always fine and consistent across each other - so i cant fiddle with my sonos volume and break all those to fix spotify...spotify is the problem

 

Help!!

Attached screenshots are IOS high sierra app - same problem on iphone X latest version as of 8/25/18

 

Also i had to search/read through so many posts - tried to comment on about 8 of them and theyre all 'closed' WHY ARE YOU SHOWING ME SO MANY CLOSED/UNSOLVED QUESTIONS WITH NO LINKS TO ANSWER? Your forum is absolutely awful

Hi,

Struggled with this also. For me it worked to go into the Sonos app and do the following: 

 

Settings -> System -> Select your speaker/speaker set -> Scroll down to "Volume Limit" and change this to something lower (in my case 30-40%). 

This rescales the volume slider in Spotify, and still seems to work fine in other apps as well at least for me. Hope this helps some people!

Hey @iibuc_nastyii,

 

Still having trouble with this? Is this happening between different tracks? There's a setting for that which let's you set all tracks at the same volume level. Go to Settings and scroll down to Playback. There, you should see an option called "Set the same volume level for all songs". Make sure it's checked. 🙂

 

Also, try having the Sonos speaker at different volume levels and see if it makes and difference. 

 

Let us know how it goes.

Yes certainly still a problem
No it’s not a problem with different songs.

There’s muted, too quiet, too loud, then about 50 more volume levels that are all also way too blaring loud

This is for every song and every device I play thru

Hey again @iibuc_nastyii,

 

We suggest that you lower the volume on the Sonos device itself, and see if that works out better for your or if the Volume control still skips too much. 

 

Let us know if that helps 🙂

Seems like you didnt read my post?

The volume on every app on the TV, and input to TV that plays thru sonos is fine.

So you want me screw up everything else on behalf of spotify's problem, and be required to go find my sonos remote every time before I press play on spotify app or it will literally break my sonos speakers and probly my eardrums, along with probly getting me kicked out of my apartment.
This defeats the purpose of the sonos/spotfiy integration in the first place
Because guys can fix your bug…?

Additionally, Spotify completely takes over the Sonos volume control when connected - meaning I cannot change my sonos volume in any way other than with spotify

Yeh same issue with mine, its really annoying (well more than annoying..read on) as sometime I play through PC speakers - so i turn the sound up to full and then accidently play through SONOS and as you can imagine - talk about nearly having a heart attack! And as the comments have already said Spotify takes over the sonos sound so even if you use the phyical buttons or SONOS desktop app its all the same. 1 click to low, 2/3 clicks ok, 4/5 clicks+ - game over.
