Spotify Connect troubles with Yamaha MusicCast

Up until a few days ago, I had absolutely no problems connecting to my two Yamaha MusicCast speakers (WX-010 and WX-030) with Spotify Connect on my Android phone. All of a sudden, I very frequently have it get stuck on "Connecting..." when I try to connect. I have the same problem with the desktop version of Spotify.

 

This is specific to Spotify Connect as I have no problems playing Pandora on the speakers. I didn't change any of my network settings or do any kind of upgrades.

 

I've tried the following:

1) Restarted my router (once by restarting it, and once by completely uplugging it and plugging it back in).

2) Powered off and powered back on the speakers.

3) Completely reset the speakers and reconnected them with the MusicCast app.

4) Signed out of all Spotify devices and signed back in.

5) Removed and reinstalled the Spotify app from my phone.

 

None of these have helped. Is there a known Spotify Connect issue with Yamaha devices going on now?

I'm suddenly having the same issue using my Android app or spotify on Mac to connect to my Yamaha Musicast reciever.  I assume it has something to do with how the reciever is connecting to my home wifi, but I'm not sure.

If you are suddenly having this problem as well and you haven't done any kind of network changes, then I suspect it's not your network, but something with Spotify specifically.

 

I've realized now it's not just specific to the Yamaha speakers, but between the Android and the Desktop app they can frequently be out of sync with music playing separately from both. Normally when you play on one, it should disconnect from the other.

Some for me. WX-010 does not work standalone. ISX-80 and YSP2700 work well.
When i link ysp as master and wx as slave spotify works. Seems like an issue between Spotify Connect or WX-Firmware.

I might help you :

I bought the RN-602 and the WX-030. they both work perfectly independently.

But when I connect both of them, I have breach in the music on the WX-030.

I sent both back to Yamaha several times, and the last time it went back to Japan! (I live in France)

The answer from Yamaha is the following: they is a software issue between MusicCast and Spotify, and they have not solved the problem until now.

So I asked for a reimbursement of the WX-030, which they accepted.

Hi guys,

 

My WX-010 does not play with Spotify. I just bought the device so it's not that it suddenly stopped working, it just has never worked. Spotify tries to connect but just gives up without a message after about 10 seconds.

 

Has anyone found any solutions? Thanks

Yes! We also have the same problem. We have multiple devices and tried to play Spotify music but it did not work. Pandora, as well as, my music both work. I am not sure why Spotify is not working...

I have similar problem. I can see my musiccast speakers only once, later if I power of I can´t see with spotify again, but with others app I don´t have problem. If I switch of( take out the power cable) , I can see again only once more.... IF THIS PROBLEM IS NOT RESOLVE I WILL GO OUT WITH MY SUBSCRIPTION TO OTHER PLATFORM.......

Within the last week or so, I started having exactly the same problem and have tried all the usual solutions as MEA707 (restarting router, deleting, reinstalling Spotify, Musiccast app etc). No success.
