Bose SoundTouch 30 & 300
My Question or Issue
Regardless of what sort order a playlist is configured with (e.g. “Recently added”), SoundTouch speakers always play it in “Custom order” mode.
This means that no matter how I configure the playlist sort order in the Spotify app, it’ll always start from the same song if I play it directly from the Bose system, via Spotify Connect (i.e. it plays in the correct/expected order if I play it via my phone or the web player — just not directly via the Spotify Connect app on the Bose speakers).
Clearly Bose just don’t check / adhere to a different playlist sort order, other than “Custom order”.
I’ve tried logging this issue with Bose many times, but haven’t had a reply… and it seems this issue has been going on since 2015! https://community.spotify.com/t5/Android/Spotify-Connect-and-Playlist-sorting/m-p/1251035#M52271
