Volume control with Spotify Connect?

Until today I didn’t know this, but it seems to be possible to control the volume on Spotify Connect from one device to the other, say this thread on the Spotify Forum. It works only on Android, not on iPhone. But, there are a lot of devices where this still doesn’t work, like on all the devices I have. I found out it works only from my Moto G phone to my laptop (with Spotify Beta with Spotify Connect support. Strange… Has anybody else a good experience with volume control on Spotify Connect? Or does anybody know why it’s working on one device, and doesn’t on the other?

Update (13-11-2014):
I’ve got a reply from the Spotify Support team; volume control with Spotify Connect from mobile to mobile doesn’t work at the moment. They don’t know if this feature will be implemented.

I started an “idea” in the Spotify forum to ask for volume control from Android to Android using Spotify Connect. If you want to support the idea, give it some kudos!

  1. Well the lack of volume control (android media player as server) bothers me a lot. I figured out a workaround that works ok for me: On the server I installed XMBC/Kodi and on the client side I use a XMBC/Kodi remote control (Yatse for android in my case). Using this setup I can control the server’s volume, but the drawback is that I have to switch from the spotify app to the remote control app to change volume. Good thing is, that the volume keys of the android client can be used to control the volume when yatse is in foreground.
    Hope that helps some of you as well while waiting for a native spotify connect volume control implementation.

    1. Hi Lolle,

      Thanks for your workaround! I also hope that Spotify will implement volume control with Spotify Connect soon. It’s the last missing feature to make Spotify Connect perfect.
