Remove Sonos speakers from Spotify Connect
Anyone know of a way to remove Sonos speakers from Spotify connect? I added them today and ever since there has been some funky stuff going on. I would like to undo that mistake but of course there seems to be no straight forward way to do it. Thanks.

Hi, welcome to the community.
I'm afraid this isn't possible. That said, seeing the Sonos speaker within the Spotify app shouldn't cause any issues. Can you let me know what are the problems the system is experiencing? Also, can you send us a diagnostic and reply with the confirmation number? Here's an article explaining how: How to Submit Diagnostic.
I have read on reddit, as soon as your friends connect to another network, it will clear you sonos speakers out of their phones. Up until then they can wake you up in the middle of the night, from anywhere in the world, then play motor head at max volume!! :@
Flaw which spotify are working on apparently...
I came across this on another forum. I don't use Spotify myself but both my daughters do and as I am still learning how to get the best out of Sonos for me, it is of some concern. It would be great to see comments on this and what I can do to prevent this happening (if true.)
Odd question perhaps but is Spotify Connect different to Spotify which would mean the Spotify app on my daughter's phone is different?
"I was not looking forward to this update. Just a heads up to everyone, if you allow your friends access to your Sonos system through Spotify Connect, they will now be able to play music through your system even when they aren't on the same network. They can even be halfway across the world and can still play music and adjust the volume.
To make matters worse, your Sonos speakers will stay in your friends' Spotify app and there is no way for them to remove it even if they wanted to.
There are so many complaints on the Spotify forums going back years but they refuse to do anything about it. Your friends should only have access when they are on your network but that isn't how it is. I'm not 100% sure but I think Spotify Connect registers the MAC address of your speakers leading to access of them from anywhere."
I have come late to the Sonos party having looked at the opposition and this has the potential to be a frustrating problem. I don't use (or want to use Spotify) and yet if a family member uses it then it is pushed onto my system never to be taken off.
If I create a Sonosnet on my network and (not that I know how to) then create a guest network would this keep my Sonos private, would the Sonosnet only be visible on the primary network, perhaps someone can explain how this would work, if indeed it will? How would my printer be accessible on the guest network?
