Fixed for me too, now running  Spotify 8.4.24.871 with auto update disabled in the Play store, and all is well! Kudos to McBernie!

Thanks for doing the legwork McBernie, all's well now running Spotify 8.4.24.871. I've passed the info to Sonos who will hopefully contact Spotify. Thanks again!

Excellent, but don't forget to disable auto-update for the Spotify app in
Google Play!

Older version doesn't work for me. I can connect, hit the play button, then while to music does start playing on my Sonos, the Spotify Connect shows the Play button again, as if it stopped playing and the connection is lost. All this while the Sonos continues to play.

 

Reauthorized the account on Sonos, same faulty behavior described above.

 

I guess only reverting does not completely fix the issue.

The old version actually worked for me. I don't know if spotify actually monitor these threads so I'll Tweet them to make sure it is on their radar

Thanks for posting this collingwoohoo

can think of no logical reason why you need to get your desktop spotify involved to get your phone app to work, however it worked a treat so cheers

This FINALLY was the solution for me. Worked 100%. Makes sense too as it was a few weeks back that i got the latest update to spotify and thats when i stopped being able to play on my sonos speakers from the spotify app. I just deleted the Spotify app, downloaded this older version via the link above, and low and behold works fine......Then i went into the Play store, searched for the spotify app there and made sure to turn off auto updates......I dont want to grab the latest version again and break this feature once again.

I could rant all night about why Spotify and sonos need to get their **bleep** together, I'll save and just say a huge THANK YOU for this.

Can even group speakers again :-D
