I bought 5 JBL Playlist and set them up using Google Home.
This worked perfectly fine, I can find and play music on all speakers.
Then I started setting up various groups, the first day this worked perfectly fine as well and I could connect with all of them.
Somehow when I returned from work the next day, they all disappeared in the spotify app. I still see them in the Google home app but can't connect to them via spotify.
If I disable wifi they show up for a second and if I'm fast enough I can connect to them before they vanish again.
All speakers are in the same WiFi and my router is set up to allow communication between devices.
Well, it worked on day 1 so there wasn't any issue. Now I'm clueless though why they are not showing up anymore any ideas?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I'm having the same issue, and Spotify support was utterly useless. I used to be able to connect to Google Home speaker groups -- stopped working about a week ago. I also see the speaker groups *briefly* appear when I first connect to WiFi, then they disappear. I think I figured out what's going on (at least in my case). Do you still see the individual speakers in the "connect to a device" list? If so, click the context menu (three dots) next to one the speakers, then select "Google Cast" instead of "Spotify Connect." After I did that, the groups started showing up in the list again.
