Try this: Simply remove Spotify as a service

We’d firstly suggest simply removing Spotify as a service. You can remove Spotify as service from the Sonos app, go into the app and navigate to services.

Once there, find Spotify, hold down and remove the app, once uninstalled, wait around 10 minutes.

Go back into services and add Spotify again to the list of approved services in the Sonos app.

Try connecting once again and it should be able to bypass the glitch causing the problem before.
