Spotify connect with speakers plugged into headphone jack

Casual Listener

I use Spotify my iPhone or iPad plugged into a set of computer speakers using a headphone jack.  I'd love to use Spotify Connect and control the iPhone plugged into the speakers from my iPad.  What i've found is that by using the headphone jack, Spotify Connect is disabled.   Has anyone found a work around for that?

 

Thank you

That is weird, I can still select my iPhone as a Spotify Connect device from my iPad with speakers plugged in via the headphone port.

Spotify Connect will automatically jump to the iPhone when you plug the speakers into the iPhone. Does it not appear in the Connect dialogue on your iPad?

Correct...when i have my iphone plugged into the speakers i don't see the Connect logo...it is only the volume logo on both my iPad and iPhone.  

 

I checked last night to make sure i had the lastest version of the App.  

 

Thank you for picking up my post!

What type of iPhone are you using? Does it make any difference if you force close Spotify, then connect the headphone jack then launch Spotify on the iPhone?
