I have the same problem. The reason i bought the reciever from the first place and now I have to go back to listening with the airplay function which is a pain in the ***. Have anyone got a explanation? Or is just because they updated some of their servers? 

 

Bad.......

Same problem here 😞

I bought the amplifier not so long ago and chose it because of the spotify connect possibility. I used this every day but did not get it to work anymore but now it turns out that this possibility just isn't there anymore. I'm really disappointed! I'm not gonna pay for something that doesn't work and I'm not gonna buy another expensive receiver.

I just changed over from Apple Music because of this. Well, back to Apple I guess.

I connected a Chromecast which works great. When I give the Chromecast the command to play music (or a movie) the VSX receiver switches over automaticly and plays it. But it's still a shame that a big functionality like this just stops working on the receiver and that there isn't a fix for it. This functionality was one of the main reasons to buy this VSX receiver.

The reason seems to be that Spotify has done some significant changes on the server side. This requires Pioneer to update their firmware, but they have been too lazy to do that.

 

AirPlay has also stopped working on my receiver. I don't think they would be able to update to AirPlay 2 using sw only, but AirPlay is backward compatible, so I don't understand why. Anyone else with this problem?

I use this workaround:

- I open Spotify on my iPad 2 (!) iOS 9.3.5

- For one reason or the other that device is still compatible with Spotify Connect on my VSX-S510.

- I connect to the Pioneer Amp in my Spotify app on that iPad 2 (!)

- I remotely operate Spotify with my OnePlus 7 Pro

 

Still works! 😁
