I love my Sonos and love Spotify connect feature because it’s so easy to control speaker using Spotify app (through I don’t understand why premium account is required)!

But now I would like to test other streaming services. Does any of them have feature like Spotify connect? I’ve tried Tidal and Deezer and seems there is no such feature.

Just on this point -- it’s simply because Spotify mandates it.

But at least Lametric Time supports streaming using Spotify connect from free account.

So send a note to Spotify, and ask them why they consider this a requirement. Sonos provides the API for anyone to use, but Sonos doesn’t choose what is provided, or whether it is premium or free content. Sonos is merely an aggregator of other people’s content.

If I had wished to write to Spotify I would obviously have written to them. I've just provided example that some devices is working with free accounts.

 

Anyway that was not the main question.
