In agreement with all written and reiterating somebody elses recent post.

 

Just want to urge other posters on this site to add their comments on the Sonos forum which is likely the best way to a full or partial resolution in the short term. Link below to an appropriate forum, Sonos do listen if enough people shout, please post your support for 'Your Music' feature on Sonos app.

My understanding is that the issue here is there aren't open APIs for Sonos to use to support radio, and the new changes with saved albums/artists.

 

Since I love my sonos it's spotify that's going to lose out. I'm part way through evaluating an alternative (google music) which has better support on sonos including radio. Interestingly the bluetooth support works better in car (track time) though that's minor.

 

I love spotify and have been a premium subscriber for about 3 years, but the lack of integration means it's now getting hard to reset the switch. I hope spotify can open up these APIs and allow us to have a great sonos solution.

Yup, this is what is happening I believe.  And with Spotify Connect I don't think they're actively helping build out third-party hardware solutions that don't support Connect.

 

I'm right there with you in that I love Spotify, but it is hard to ignore other options that do a good job with Sonos integration.

I've just taken to tweeting the CEO of Spotify with a link to this forum to see if we get an official response on the matter.

So I happened to tweet the CEO of Spotify and ask for him to take a look at our requests and I got a reply from the @SpotifyCares account.  https://spotify.response.lithium.com/portal/conversation/1706346

 

What was interesting was that they want me to contribute to even more forum posts that are on this site (surely this own thread was enough???) and also to post in the Official Sonos forum, which coincidentally is my own forum post in the first place!

 

Come on Spotify!  You're users would like to see these changes implemented and would make your app an even bigger success than it already is.  I worry that if you continue to neglect a 3rd party such as Sonos then users will go elsewhere for their music.

That seems like you're being fobbed off.  Essentially 'spam' the site with forum posts and we might listen to you.

 

I'm trialling Google Music All Access at the moment.  3 month free trial as I have a Sonos.  The integration is far superior.  You can also use the Google Music app and send music to the Sonos if you prefer.  The library of music is extensive.  At this rate, I'll be cancelling my Spotify subscription.

I've found that Google Play All Access Music doesn't have everything that I want and the 'social' side of it - sharing tracks with others, facebook and Twitter is non-existant.

Sorry but I don't agree that moving to another music streaming site is a solution!

 

Spotify/Sonos need to step up and make the necessary changes to whoever's API's/app etc that gives the paying customer what they need and what they truly deserve

 

A fully integrated Spotify experience on Sonos systems!
