I’m probably in the minority and just started trying Spotify Premium with a free trial. I currently use Tidal, so I’m trying to figure out how people use Spotify with SONOS. Here’s an example: I’m listening to Tidal and at the top of the hour, go to my radio station to hear the news, then switch back to Tidal when the news is over. All in one app (the SONOS app).
With Spotify, I have to open Spotify, start music, then open SONOS to switch to news (which automatically overrides Spotify). Then I have to go back to Spotify, tell it to “forget” my SONOS room, because no sound is coming out, and relink it back to SONOS.
Just seems like a pain to switch sources. Why would SONOS allow an app to bypass there app? Seems like Spotify is taking control of the user interface (grouping, connecting, volume), bypassing SONOS. Almost like a power play where one day Spotify will simply connect to multiple devices, some SONOS some not.
