[All Platforms][Connect] Sync Play Queue across devices

Status: Case Closed

I have seen a few inactive ideas for this, maybe this time we can get enough votes to actually get some attention.

 

The issue is that play queues are largely per device. This means that when I am listening to a shuffled playlist or album on say my phone then switch to using my Spotify enabled audio receiver using connect all of the songs I already listened to are back in the queue. Or if I use connect on my phone to pause play on said receiver (or my AppleTV or any other device) then after not playing for a bit I try to pick back up where I left off via connect, the queue has been reset because it was never synced to the other device.

 

Even when I am using connect on my laptop to play on another device then I switch back to my laptop as the output device it resets the queue. I get why transferring the queue wasn't part of the original version of connect, it isn't a critical feature for an initial version. However, it is something that should have been on the backlog from the beginning and I would have expected to see implemented in the intervening years.
