Sony AV STR-DN1060 receiver has Spotify Connect but apps don't see it

Music Fan

So I bought the latest Sony AV receiver, the Sony 1060, which has bluetooth, Airplay and all kinds of services including Spotify Connect.

However, all desktops, Ipads and Android devices refuse to see the device for use with Spotify Connect. What's going on here? All devices are on the same network. Airplay works fine which proves that they're in the same subnet.

Domewodka, I just spoke to the Sony product managers. Spotify Connect is coming to this receiver early July. It hasn't been cancelled. It seems like they gave you the wrong information. Did Sony support tell you this?

Sony let me know they've cancelled Spotify Connect support for their 2015 receivers, even though the specs said it would support it.

 

I don't want to go to Google Play but somehow feel I'm forced to.

Hi, it indeed was Sony support that told me all the websites were wrong, including theirs; the Sony 1060 would not support Spotify Connect.

Let's hope this July a fw update will fix this, thanks!

I'm glad (and sort of terrified) that only Sony support got it wrong. See you in July!
