I’ve got various Sonos speakers around the house, and use a combination of the Spotify App (on PC, iOS, and Kindles) and Sonos App (on PC and iOS, for better control of volume, grouping, EQ etc).
I always play from the Spotify App, and use Kindles around the house, so that I can see album art, skip tracks, add to playlists, hit the like button etc. These can also be used to change the playlist / radio.
I’ve just got an Echo Show 8, thinking it (being Amazon) could be used to behave like the Kindles, but in a more robust desktop unit (ie an integrated unit not needing a separate stand, power cable sticking out the top etc).
I’ve got Spotify up and running on it, but whenever it kicks in, it takes over the track that was playing on Sonos, but plays it just to the local Echo. While I get it, that’s not what I was wanting to do, and there doesn't seem to be a method of selecting a different device (eg Sonos).
I don’t actually want it to play on the Echo Show speaker, just be a viewer / controller for the existing set-up.
Does anybody know if it’s achievable some how?
