  • Your speaker or sound system is supported by Spotify. You can check this at Spotify Everywhere or with the device’s manufacturer.
  • Your speaker or sound system is on, and connected to your WiFi network (it may have a connection indicator light).
  • If this is the first time playing to the speaker/sound system from your phone/tablet, make sure they're both connected to the same WiFi network. (I.e. if your device’s connected to 4G instead of WiFi, it probably won't work.)
  • You have the latest version of Spotify on your device.
  • All devices' software is up-to-date. If you don't know, check with your devices' manufacturer for how to check and update the version software.
  • You're not trying to play local files. These are not supported by Spotify Connect.

If you’re still having trouble after those checks:

  • Restart the Spotify app.
  • Close any other apps you’re not using.
  • Restart your devices.
  • Restart your WiFi.
  • If possible, try a different WiFi connection on the device you're playing from (i.e. your mobile or tablet).

  • Both devices have sufficient charge or power.
  • Turn off the Bluetooth function of other nearby Bluetooth devices.
    Note: Some Bluetooth audio devices can’t connect to multiple source devices at a time. Be sure to disconnect any current connections to use it with another device.
  • Close Spotify while establishing the connection.
  • Close any other apps you’re not using.

Once you’ve checked the above, try restarting the connection:

  1. Turn off the Bluetooth on your speaker or sound system.
  2. With the Bluetooth settings on your device with the Spotify app switched on, delete the information of the speaker or sound system.
    Tip: The setting to delete is often called ‘forget’.
  3. Turn Bluetooth off and back on for your device with the Spotify app.
  4. Turn the Bluetooth on your speaker or sound system back on.
  5. Allow approximately 20 seconds for your device to detect your speaker or sound system. Once it appears, select it to pair.
  6. Open Spotify and play something. The sound should now come from your speaker.

Depending on your speaker or sound system, you may need to select it as the default for the device you’re playing from or configure the connection to allow media sharing. Look for those options in the Bluetooth settings for the device you’re playing from (i.e. your mobile or tablet).

If the problem persists, check out the support site for the manufacturer for help.

If your aux or USB cable isn't working, check the manufacturer's guide to ensure you have the correct cable for your device. If you do, you could maybe try a different one in case it's damaged.
