I live in Sweden and have had the same problem for about 6 hours. There should be some form of indication in the app when there is an error on your end Sonos. Quite argous to go through 5-10 different diagnostic-steps only to find out that you have a problem. I love the Sonos application and the system but should it really be this faulty when we pay such a premium to only use your equipment? (This was the drop that tipped the scale and got me to comment, in my last year we probably have had around 10 such moments where we cursed at the system).

Hope you can sort it out swiftly. Merry Christmas
I'm having the same problem here. Very frustrating we are relying on thus to work and it is becoming very unreliable. Please please fix the problem.
Exactly the same issue here. (Netherlands) Never had this issue before.
Same problem for me, also in NL. Reauthorization of Spotify in Sonos works but does NOT solve the problem. Spotify is working fine, but NOT via Sonos. Please solve!

The sonos spotify connection is BACK!
Seems to be working here in UK now. Certainly for me.
Nice, works for me as well in Sweden
Works again in The Netherlands.
i can confirm its working in uk
Still not working in Ireland. It worked Christmas Eve and then the problem started yesterday morning but came back in the afternoon. Today it's been unable to browse spotify all day. I got a second sonos speaker 2 days ago with free deeper for a year and cannot help but wonder if sonos is in bed with deezer and causing problems for spotify premium users to get us all to switch. Very unsatisfactory.

Hi, trixlme. I responded to you in your own thread.
Found this thread online, and after a couple of months having issues with Spotify account in my system and getting the same feedback as everyone else, just felt like registering my experience here. This is ridiculous... my system worked perfectly for more than a year, then of of a sudden Spotify can't find the account any longer. Like everyone else, what's on the playlist works fine as well as favorites. My controller can't find TuneIn server either, but some stations were already on my favorites and they worked without a problem. however, I cannot use TuneIn or Spotify servers... As many have said already, the issue is NOT on my side, obviously. Actually just today it started working again in the morning... then comes the afternoon and my joy is gone. What the hell SONOS? You have awesome hardware, but man is this thing destroying the product for me... I would expect the same level of premium service as the investment we have made on the brand with considerable expense 😠
Holy cow! It works! I am using iOS 10 and updating DNS worked perfectly! Let's see if this will "stick" or if soon enough I'll have issues again! Thank you so much! I really appreciate it! Also since you seem to know this sort of thing, I must say my windows 10 controller does not work either... however the issue here is that it doesn't locate my SONOS network. Is there a similar trick I could try here, you think? Thanks again!!!
For anyone who is having this issue... I was having the same error and was able to correct mine by joining the correct wireless network on my Mac. For example, my Sonos speakers are all connected to Bell, and my laptop had auto connected to the second wireless network my modem has which is Bell-5G. While I was connected to Bell-5G, I was able to control my Sonos speakers and such, but was getting the Spotify error. When I connected to the Bell network and restarted the Sonos app on my Mac it worked perfectly. Since I've become aware of this I haven't had any Spotify issues.
Been through this very long thread! Same thing has happened to me one day after receiving my Sonos one(s). I can play Spotify via the Spotify app but when using Sonos app it’s says unable to browse music. I tried the reboot and everything. No change. Worked on the first day then next day had this issue.

Did we decide that essentially this is a Sonos backend issue? No one seems to have resolved their issue through the reboot of speakers and router (which btw is a real pain especially if you have to re configure routers.)

Have uploaded two images 1) showing the unable to browse music and 2) showing that on the rooms tab I am now only able to play what was playing the night before when it worked.

Is there a proper explanation for why this is happening and how to solve?

First time Sonos user and pretty disappointed so far!
