[WP8] Music doesn't play - a region thing? (HTC 8X)

You need to log into the Spotify website to change these settings.

 

After logging into it, go to Profile directly (which is also under Accounts). Once you're at the Edit Profile page, you should see at the very top:

 

Use Spotify on your devices

Set your device password to use Spotify on your Sonos, Squeezebox and a whole heap of other devices.

 

Then just set your password for your devices. It would be an numeric username, but it links to your Spotify account nevertheless. I just used that to log into my WP8 Spotify account and it plays and syncs perfectly.

Weird - I don't see that anywhere. :/

This worked perfectly!!! Much better than having to cancel my facebook linked account and create a new one w/o fb... Thank you very much Kamigoroshi!

 

FYI: I'm using a Lumia 920 that was having the issue... So the problem is not with just the 8x

Yeah I can't see the passwords for devices setting via web browser either. It's incredibly frustrating, I've been trying to download some songs to my Lumia 920 for offline use but I don't seem to be making any progress.

Perfect. Works like a charm. (USA ATT 8x) Spotify should have this fix on the app description. Its only right.   Thanks for the help.

Any word yet on how I can get my songs to play? :)

Thanks for the thread. This definitely needs to be fixed in the app. If nothing else, a detailed error message needs to be displayed.

 

I think that setting up a Spotify (not Facebook) userid fixed the problem on the server for me. However, the app had no obvious way how to change the user id / password, so I had to uninstall/reinstall. Fixed it!
