Problem with Bose Spotify Connect after iOS 13 update
On my iPhone, I have Spotify Premium Account, both as iOS App. and also as authorized Music Service in my Bose Music Account.
Most of the time, I used to play Spotify on my Soundbar 500 not from Bose Music App. but directly from the iOS App. on the iPhone. Even Bose Music recommends doing it, using Spotify as a remote, through Spotify Connect.
Before iOS 13 update, everything was fine and Bose Soundbar 500 was visible as “Spotify Connect” option in my Spotify Device List, so all I had to do is select it from the list as Spotify Connect.
After iOS 13 update, Bose Soundbar 500 disappeared from the Spotify Device List. The only way to play Spotify on Bose Soundbar is to choose the Airplay&Bluetooth in Spotify Device List and then select the Bose Soundbar, but the quality is inferior to Spotify connect.
The only way to force the appearance of the Bose Soundbar into the Spotify Device List is to start to play a song into the Spotify of the Bose Music App. and, during playback, change to Spotify App. of the iOS. But, even so, the Soundbar remains visible into Spotify Device only until the app is stopped.
Before iOS 13 update, Bose Soundbar 500 was permanently visible as Spotify Connect.
Unfortunately, Bose had such information from the iOS 13 Beta, but they did nothing and now we have troubles after the official iOS 13 release; I just hope is a small problem that can be fixed easily.
On the iPad, which has no iOS 13 update yet, everything is perfect, as it was on the iPhone, before iOS 13 update.
