Support Spotify Connect to allow users to use the Spotify app as the controller.
Spotify Connect was just announced and I was surprised that I didn't see Sonos in the list of companies that would provide support. Many Spotify users have been asking for a long time to be able to use the Spotify app as the controller for selecting songs, as it provides a superior experience (you still can't even see the Top 5 songs in the Spotify view within the Sonos app, and it is difficult to look through an artist's collection to find a specific song unless you know which album it was in). Please support spotify connect. Additional details on Spotify Connect are here: http://www.theverge.com/2013/9/3/4688166/spotify-connect-launches-to-stream-music-to-compatible-speakers If you look at the post on theverge, even the first comment was one asking for Sonos support for the feature.

Makes me feel that I didn't make the right choice in the beginning.
Seriously if LG, Pioneer, Marantz, Teufel, B&O, Sony, Yamaha, Philips, Panasonic, Denon + many others can why sonos can't?
I doubt going for some Libratone or bleusound.... problem solved
Love my Sonos (Amp and Play 5), but start having some regrets because of the poor Spotify support. If not being tied in, I'd most likely opt for a Heos Amp instead of my Connect Amp. Seriously, I've been recommending Sonos to family members and friends, but stopped doing so because of this Spotify thing. Sonos must realise that Spotify is considerable factor in the equation and not 'just some service'. Get your act together Sonos, customers may not be so loyal as you might think.
i recently switched from spotify to Google play specifically because they integrate with sonos.... i LOVE spotify and want to come back , but this is a super convenient feature that I've become dependent on.
But totally lacking in detail or supporting evidence !
That's why I have kindly asked them for the source behind this information. No answer until now.
OK! Let us know if they reply. I wish it were true but I think it must just be a misunderstanding somewhere in the research.
Just this week I've advised my family setting up the new holiday house to go for a different speaker system as although Sonos has good speakers, it's not keeping up with technology.
This will be Sonos' demise - the flexibility of all other wifi speaker systems will overtake the once great leader in the field.
COME ON Sonos! Your community has been crying out for this for over a year now! Surely you can at least respect us with a response to the repeated requests!
Yes, I know this is due to Spotify's API but making Sonos speakers available as Spotify Connect devices is down to Sonos and would open up all Spotify functionality to Sonos. If there is a technical reason why this cant be done Sonos should come clean about it. However, the comments from the CEO and the vast number of other devices that can support it suggest this is not the case.
any news concerning the source of heise? would be really interested!
I own multiple Sonos speakers and have the need to expand ever since we moved into our new and larger home. I'm going to have to balance this significant disadvantage with choosing other systems like Sony's.
You're going to lose me as a customer if you don't integrate this soon.
Thank you for considering.
I'm pretty sure the Pure Jongo (there is no 'Jengo') was discontinued. Better get them fast! ;-)
It also never supported Spotify Connect. 😉
Some friends have been thinking about getting the SonosSystem but I told them dont becasue of the simple fact that we are not able to use spotify connect or whatever other software to make it possible to play through the beutiful spotify UI. Its a big shame - from a big companie as Sonos? Shame on you for real.
Me myself have waited for an uptade from you, Sonos, for years now but you never listen to ur customers whatsoever. I will throw this crapsystem away and start support another musicSystem that actually take their customers before anything else.
I used Sonos becasue of Spotify. But you never let me use Spotify the proper way. Fuckin ironic. And yea, have fun with my cash, you expensive piece of shit.
Do something about this or u will lose a ton of ur customers and wont get any new.
Im done with companies like Sonos.
