Spotify Playlists to Roku

I spoke with Roku first to insure it was working correctly as I am not able to download my playlists onto my Roku for streaming to my TV. Roku is fine so they suggested it is a glitch with Spotify and to contact you about solving the problem. I have seen numerous complaints about this on Google so I know it is not isolated.

I have discovered that since I have a separate surround sound system, I can
just hook my phone up to that (via an adapter; it doesn't accept Bluetooth)
I can listen to Spotify playlists at home.

I do have to disconnect my aux cord from sound to phone, then back to TV,
but it could be worse.

Still activating an amazon music subscription. do

Seriously, you are going to be obsolete soon. There is many other devices that has handled this issue. Don't sit on your hands as your customers leave. GET IT FIXED, or I will cancel and go to another device that will give me what I was promised by Roku and by LG TV.

Since Spotify has decided to screw Roku customers, I have decided to cancel my Spotify premium family account!  Moving to Amazon Music Unlimited!   Others need to cancel!

Knock knock. who's there? not my playslists on Roku.

 

Come on Spotify, get your * together and make your app usable. No, I don't want to try another device. I've had Playstation and Amazon. I like Roku.

Such awful decisions. The list of flaws with Spotify is growing. I’ve had a premium account for five years and always recommended Spotify over other services, but I can see now it is uicklynbecoming the dinosaur of streaming services. Time to start testing out the others, I guess...

I've recently investigated the possibility of buying a PioneerN30ae streaming unit, "with Spotify facility". I contacted Pioneer UK to check this out. "Spotify have withdrawn their support for this  product"!!

Need I say more? Spotify is dead in the water. Time for Deezer, Amazon, Pandora etc to step up to the plate. Goodbye, Spotify.

For over 9 months I have not been able to play my playlist on Roku, hence surround sound off my amp. 

I love that I have been able to add and make playlists and be able to listen to them at a whim, but if this problem persists, I may look for a different app. 

Any recommendations for an app that is similiar to Spotify that is available on Roku?

DEEZER!!

There's no denying Spotify is the best app all round, but its owners have decided that it's only to be used via PCs, Macs, Tablets and  phones. Streaming to domestic Hi-Fi setups is not part of their plan. So, they have alienated a huge part of their potential audience, as well as antagonising many others by persisting with their difficult--to-manipulate GUI. They know they have the best (potential) system, but don't have the commercial sense to market (sell) it to the maximum number of customers.

No, not in USA. Where are you from and do you have Roku on your TV
applications?

Well, that’s really stupid. I came back to Spotify from Apple Music so I can play my playlists on our TV. I think I may have wasted my time.  Spotify needs to bring back playlists, or it’s back to Apple Music for me.

Most of us have Smart TV's now, I have both and still Spotify does not want
to update their features. Seems like a hold out for money, but I'm losing
my patients and probably say, Bye, Bye to Spotify.
