Since the last update, only a handful of recently accessed Spotify playlists are accessible to browse through the Sonos app on my PC. The ability to browse Spotify’s curated playlists was a feature I used on a daily basis. I can only assume that a bug has been introduced in the latest update which has caused this loss of functionality. When will this be fixed?
Hi My Sonos Controller recently stopped recognizing my Spotify account which I then removed from the Sonos app.Now Sonos does not connect to any music service and under “Add Music Services” I get the message “No selections available”.Based on other answers, I have tried:reinstalling the Sonos app rebooting the router, Sonos Bridge and Sonos speakers & ConnectNothing seems to work and I still get the same message under Music Services.I ran a diagnostic after trying all these things again - the code is 1669624089.Thanks for any advice!
I live in San Francisco and I recently bought a Sonos Move to use it with my Spotify Premium Account. Iwas trying to add Spotify in Services/Add music service menu but it doesn't exist there. So I have to use a Bluetooth in order to listen Spotify.Is there a way to listen to Spotify on my Sonos via WiFi?
I am able to select & play my Pandora & TuneIn stations just fine. When I select any of my saved Amazon Music Stations in My Sonos, I get “Requested operation failed. Please try again.” It never works, though. I have to Browse for it again to get it to play and then it plays just fine. This is on the app on both iPad & iPhone. Any help out there? Thank you.
Hi there.I’ve recently done some housekeeping in Spotify - using Playlist Folders to hold old playlists. Unfortunately in neither the Apple iOS 13.13 App, nor Windows 10 app - these aren’t visible. Instead, I merely see the playlists (I *think* in the order I placed them).Is this a known issue or enhancement opportunity? (or am I being a dumb ass?)Thanks in advance for any guidance available - it’s appreciated. :-)
So I just came home from work and was surprised to hear my speakers blasting music on full volume. After some troubleshooting I Could say that it is not my apartment that is haunted but my girlfriend who had accessed my system through her Spotify by accident by using Spotify connect. After some testing we found that several People who had accessed the speakers before through my wifi Could still connect, miles away through Spotify and play music. Is there any way to block or remove this function. I only want People to gain access when I allow through my wifi? Thanks!
I decided to sign up for a paid music service today. I was deciding between Amazon Music Unlimited and YouTube Premium, which includes Music, since for $2 extra, there are other benefits. I thought it was an option because I saw it listed as one of the services to add in the Sonos app. BUT, apparently Alexa can't start a song with it. Is that right? I expected to be able to change the default app, and then just continue and be able to play most any song. Instead, I find that I can't even get Alexa to start a song with it, even if I say Play (Song Name) with YouTube Music. Is that right? Did I just waste $13? Thanks in advance.
Hello, Anyone have a fix to make the Sonos play 5 speaker appear in Spotify connect menu (both on the Spotify iOS and macOS app) ? Rebooting the Sonos used to do the trick for me but not anymore. Rebooted the Sonos, rebooted my router / modem, uninstalled and reinstalled the Spotify apps, removed and readded my Spotify Account in the Sonos App. Nothing. :(
My Naim Uniti Core rips and stores CDs to a high quality. It also functions as an UPnP music server and is wired to the router. I have noticed that the Sonos app shows the option of connecting to such a source. Do I need to wire all the Sonos devices in my Surround System (Beam, Sub and 2 Ones) to the router or just the Beam? Currently none of them are connected to the router as I operate them wirelessly. Alternatively, might it work wirelessly?Any detailed advice would be appreciated as I am a novice at connecting devices.
FYI my music library resides on an external drive connected to my iMac. No change here. Yesterday, I upgraded to macOS Catalina. Today, my Imported Playlists (from iTunes, now Music) no longer appear in Sonos. Any fix for this?
Just got a Sonos One. Speaker plays Spotify great but only when I am home with my iPhone. When I leave my wife can't use it. She has a separate Spotify account on her iPhone. We also have a MacBook Air which also has my Spotify account. What to do? Wife would like to use Sonos One when I'm gone!!!
All the Tunein BBC stations have gone and I especially miss Radio 2. Apparently Sonos know about this but there seems to be no fix at the moment. Does anybody have a solution? I don’t want to have several hundred pounds worth of “super high tech equipment” sitting unable to function as it was intended. Perhaps I’ll just get my 25 year old Denon receiver back into operation - at least I know it works consistently well!
When trying to add the Spotify service in the Sonos app I get the message "Error. Unable to add Spotify account." after selecting "Connect to Spotify". I haven't entered any account details at this point. I can send music to my speakers from the Spotify app without a problem (I have a premium account). I have tried re-booting the router as suggested in a topic from a year ago; that doesn't work. Any other ideas?
Amazon Music has stopped working on my Sonos system. I am using iMac and can no longer add tracks to the Sonos app or play from Amazon My Music. I switched to an Orbi wireless modem, and Sonos will stream internet radio stations without problem. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I have already reinstalled the Sonos app to the computer, and rebooted both the wireless modem and the AT&T Gateway.
I am trying to link my premium spotify account to sonos, when I click "authorize", I'm being brought to a page where I'm supposed to enter an authorization link code. The page opens with an error "The link code you entered is not valid. Please check the link code and re-enter it below." There is no link code provided either through the app, the page I'm being linked to, or by email. I've tried using the sonos iOS app as well as the desktop version. Clearly I'm missing something here. Any suggestions?
In the spotify app I can see sonos, I try to connect to the speaker and it continuously tries to connect. Under the sonos app, I tried adding music service, spotify and it just says unable to add spotify account. I do have a premium student account. So why cant I cast or connect to sonos?

When casting to a Sonos speaker from the Amazon Music app on my iPhone or iPad, I can't seem to control the music once it starts playing. The app shows that I'm connected to the speaker, but the "now playing" screen in the app doesn't work. I have to connect to the Sonos app to control playback. Is that a known issue and/or something that I can resolve somehow? Thanks!
Just switched to Xfinity for better bandwidth and Sonos does not work with their Xfi wireless router cable modem. I cannot even get through the set up. The SONOS wifi network never shows up during set up, have updated everything SW wise. I have like $4K of Sonos gear and can’t use jack shit. Sonos doesnt answer their phone. Is someone going to help here ? My only other option is to sell everything at a huge loss and spend the rest of my life telling this story that is not pretty.
