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.
Here's a list of gear with Spotify Connect:
Play music through the Spotify app on your computer, using your phone or tablet as the remote. Connect a pair of good computer speakers, and you've got a powerful, easy-to-use setup.
- Most Internet-ready home theater receivers, many network players, and some preamps.
