I listen to Spotify at home on my Sonos system, which means I am primarily using the Sonos software interface to access my Spotify playlists and music. I needed to ID a track I heard and went to the Spotify desktop client to get the song name and artist and it wasn't in my history. This Sonos listen wasn't there, yet all my Spotify listens were there.
I was once told that Spotify tracks your listens and hits to your items played regardless if it's in the Spotify client or Sonos client or whereever. Apparently this is not the case, or is this a bug?
I would have made the ID in Sonos, but they recently f'd their queue functionality. If you start a new track, it wipes out your entire listen history and it's awful. I used to be able to get my history from Sonos until they made a recent app update. They mangled their queue functionality, wiping out all recent plays every time you start a fresh session. That's a separate discussion on Sonos.
So.....Is the problem I'm having in getting ID's in Spotify listen history because Sonos mangled their queue functions, or was Spotify never ever able to register plays in anything other than a Spotify app to begin with?
