More from Jeff Miller
Spotify Connect, featured on select A/V receivers and powered speakers, is a wireless way to enjoy Spotify music.
Select, play, and control music from your phone or tablet. The Spotify server communicates directly to your receiver or powered speaker via your home Wi-Fi network. You can make calls, play videos, or use other apps on your phone, all without interrupting the tunes pumping through the speakers.
How it works
The first step is to download the latest version of the Spotify app for your Android™ or iOS® device. You’ll need a Spotify Premium account.
Connect your receiver or portable speaker to the same home network as your smartphone or tablet, using the gear’s specific instructions. Make sure the gear has the latest firmware update and your mobile device is connected by Wi-Fi.
