I updated to the latest Spotify iOS app which claimed to fix this issue: https://community.spotify.com/t5/Ongoing-Issues/Airport-Express-Not-In-Spotify-Devices-Menu/idi-p/15...
Several weeks ago it was working fine. My Airport Express no longer shows up in Available Devices on my iPhone 6 Spotify app. I have deleted and re-installed the Spotify iPhone app and restarted the iPhone6. My iPhone 6 is not in Low Power Mode. When I goto the iOS Spotify, Settings, Devices Menu, all it shows is: LISTENING ON This iPhone. If I turn on my Marantz receiver, then it (Marantz SR6009) shows up as a Spotify Connect device.
iPhone6: iOS 10.2.1
iOS Spotify App: 18.104.22.1683
Airport Express version: 7.6.8
Me too. Nothing has changed. It does not see Airport Express, Marantz Consolette and the idea of your Connect whereby I can start Spotify on my laptop and it will appear "magically" here is just silly. Undo the fix status and have another try.
Hi @jtconte and @iankellett! Thanks for writing on the Community.
@iankellett, can you let us know which device and Spotify version you're using? Can you try restarting your internet routers so see if this makes a difference?
Let us know how it goes.
Thanks for the info @iankellett.
Could you try reinstalling Spotify on your device? You can find the steps on how to do this here.
Give it a try and let us know if it helps.
Got it @iankellett.
Did restarting your internet router made any difference? Can you let us know if this started happening after a specific update or event?
Keep us posted.
It's fixed for me!
I updated the Spotify app on my iPhone to 22.214.171.1243 but it was still broken. I then followed the steps of deleting and downloading- then it worked!
AirPlay on Mac is a bit different than AirPlay on iOS. You can read the instructions for AirPlay on your Mac on this page. Let me know how it goes.
Take care! 🙂
I'm not really sure this is an issue with Spotify. Spotify just outputs audio and your Mac should detect it, with or without Spotify. Could you head to: 'System Preferences > Sound' and select your speaker there?
After that, could you play music in the Spotify app? Let me know how it goes.
Keep rockin'! 🙂
Spoke too soon! The next time I started Spotify, same problem!
That's not alright! Could you send over a screenshot of the devices menu? (Settings (Spotify) > Devices > Devices Menu'
Thanks for your patience with this one! 🙂
Understood, @jtconte and @iankellett!
Can you guys check if your AirPort Express appears as available on another device apart from your PC?
We'll see what we can suggest with that info.
I don't have another iPhone app that sends its audio to other devices.
