Hi,

 

I also now managed to do this. If you or your wife play music with the sonos app, how does sonos know if it's you or your wife? So how do you switch accounts?

 

Regards,

René

Once my wife logs into her Spotify account, Sonos *should* recognize her next time she listens through Spotify. I am also re-checking this and will come back one I confirm.

Hi,

 

I checked this and you can switch accounts using sonos app, setting -> services and then you see all spotify accounts. Next choose the account you want to use and select: use on this device. This option is only available if this account isn't already active for your device.

 

You will notice the difference when you go to your music. When I switch accounts, the content of your music is changed.

 

Regards,

René

Yes sure, I mean if I connect the account of my wife to sonos, then of course I can listen via the spotify app. Every family account is a full premium account. 

 

Of course, when my wife is in her car, listening spotify via the app, and I start listen to the sonos and search one of my favorite albums. The music of my wife in het car stops because her account is configured in sonos. I should switch users via the sonos app and then I can start listening and my wife can listen in the car.

Hi @mitchellarno,

 

If you configured sonos with your account and you start listening in your car with your account and your wife will listen to the sonos, then it will fail because your wife is listening to the sonos with your account so she should switch.

 

I never use it this way and I think it's too complicated. Why do you think spotify connect is a work around? If you use it like that you only have to use the spotify app and you can choose easily to which speaker it should connect.

The only advantage of using the sonos app is that when you use multiple services and you listen to music via your network drive for example. Then you could argue that all your music can be controlled at one place. But if you only use spotify I recommend to use the spotify app. 

You can also do this per user. For example if you are the only one who uses the sonos then you can use the sonos app and the spotify app and the rest of the family uses spotify connect.

 

Regards,

René
