The Lenovo Smart Clock is more than just a clock. It has the Google Assistant built in, which allows you to set alarms, check the agenda, play tunes and control your smart home devices. And of course, you can play music on it.

If you want to play Spotify on Lenovo Smart Clock, just say “Hey Google, play some music.” Then it will play the song. But sometimes this feature could be buggy, according to a Reddit user:

I started having this issue yesterday where when I ask it to play music from Spotify, it says "Sorry, something went wrong. When you're ready give it another try." It also does not show up as an option to cast to. I've tried resetting as well as unlinking/linking Spotify to no avail. It was working perfectly fine on Thursday. Is there anything else I could try?

Yes, there is. In today’s article, I will show you how to play Spotify on Lenovo Smart Clock without any glitches.

Why Lenovo Smart Clock Spotify Not Working?

fix it

Well it depends. The reason could be from your Lenovo Smart Clock itself, Spotify or your network connection. Here’re some solutions to fix the problem:

1. Full reset the Lenovo Smart Clock.

2. Power cycled your internet router.

3. Remove all references to the Smart Clock's IP addresses from your router.

4. Adde the Smart Clock to a specific 2.4Ghz Wi-Fi band.

5. Adde the Smart Clock to a specific 5Ghz Wi-Fi band.

6. Move the Smart Clock nearer to the router.

7. Bring the Smart Clock to another house with a different ISP and router.

If you still can’t fix the problem, then you might have to play Spotify songs through the Bluetooth connection.

To use the Lenovo Smart Clock as the Bluetooth speaker:

1. Say “Hey Google, please connect Bluetooth”, then you can use your mobile device to connect the Smart Clock by Bluetooth.

2. Play Spotify songs in Phone or Mobile Device, choose the sound output device as the Lenovo Smart Clock.

But if you still can’t play Spotify songs in this way, that’s likely because of your internet connection. And the best way to solve it is to download Spotify songs and then play them through Bluetooth offline. But that requires you to have a Spotify Premium account, and these songs can’t be played without Spotify. Don’t worry, here’s the best solution to play Spotify songs on Lenovo Smart Clock without Premium.
