The Google Home Mini that Spotify gave me for being a cherished Premium subscriber works great in every way -- except it won't play Spotify. Whenever I try it claims to be playing what I asked for and then immediately says, "Something went wrong" and suggests I try again later. I was chatting with a Google Home CSR on and off for three hours with no resolution.
At one point we reset the device and set it up again and I got a message saying that the device was manufactured for another country (I am in the US) and my wifi might not work correctly. (It did not say this the first time I set it up.) Anywho, everything else about the device works fine (Eufy lights, Hue lights, phone calls via Google Voice) except Spotify. And Spotify works fine on all my other devices, including my Amazon Echo.
I've tried setting up the device with both my iPad and my Galaxy 7 Edge. It has no effect on the failuer of the device to play Spotify.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Okay... Solved. Apparently I can log into Spotify with either my email or my user name. I unlinked the account from the Home app, which I'm pretty sure was using my email and then relinked it with my user name. Voila. It worked.
Thanks for your efforts.
