    Spotify-connect-web

    I found this very nice Projekt on Github spotify-connect-web and librespot Library which allows you to use any Device as a Spotify Connect Player.
    Would it be possible to add this Feature to LMS? That would allow any Device compatible with LMS to be a Spotify Connect Player and I am pretty sure I am not the only one who would be very intrested in such a Solution.

    Maybe I'm missing something, but I can play Spotify through all my LMS connected devices (SBT, SB3, SBR, various Raspberry Pi versions) already. What does Spotify Connect add that I am missing?

    I think the difference is that you can control the Spotify playback using the Spotify app, rather than having to use the Squeezebox interface...

    I'm really missing the Spotify interface when using LMS. For instance, I'm not able to use "Explore" - "Genre and Themes".

    How does it fail? It's third or fourth in my SB's Spotify menu.

    Spotify Connect

    I would also be interested in that.
    Simply switching between devices from the Android app to my Squeezeboxes would be wonderful.
    I just finished to setup ShairPort... only to find out that it is not supported on Android devices.
    System: Debian, Logitech Media Server Version: 7.9.0
    Player: Squeezebox v3 @ Bose LifeStyle Series III, Squeezebox Radio, Squeezebox Boom

    I use Ipeng and Triodes Spotify clone. The original Spotify plugin have some issues as I remember. Maybe multi room use?

    wouldn't it be possible to add the Multiroom-Feature if the Connect-Server runs with LMS?
    Another advantage for me would be the possibility to add the Songs im listening on Spotify Radio to my personal Playlist without researching it in the official app.

    No, multi-room is an exclusive to the SB Touch/Radio. Connect only is a
    different way to stream, but it doesn't change the fact that Spotify
    doesn't want you to stream to more than one device at a time.
