Sonos has enabled voice control of Spotify via its Alexa-powered devices. The Alexa app now offers a choice of Amazon Music, Pandora or Spotify as the default service. That means you can simply select Spotify as the default and say,” Alexa, play Taylor Swift,” for example, and the speaker will play a playlist of Taylor’s most popular tracks on Spotify. Unfortunately, Spotify doesn’t support streaming from free accounts on a Sonos. As we all know, Spotify is the most popular music streaming service in the world and Sonos is one of the top brands of smart speakers. Here we will show you how to get them to work together with or without Spotify premium account.
To use Spotify on your Sonos speaker you need to download and install the latest Sonos update.
Step 1 Setting up a Spotify account on your Sonos.
Open the Sonos Controller app on your smartphone, tap the “More” option, and then tap the “Add Music Services” entry. From the list of services, choose Spotify. On the Add Service page, tap the “Add to Sonos” button, and then tap the “Connect to Spotify” button on the next screen. The Spotify app opens on your phone and passes your login details to the Sonos app.
Step 2 Controlling Spotify on your Sonos directly from the Spotify app.
Open the Spotify app and select the song, artist, or playlist you want to hear. Tap “Devices Available” to see a list of all the devices currently connected to your Spotify account. Select your Sonos from the list and whatever you were listening to on Spotify starts to play on it.
