    Spotify connect

    Now that the guys at Sonos have proudly announced that Spotify connect is incorporated, I was wondering if somebody out here is working on that for LMS. Should be great having, seeing the quick alterations of the spotify app.

    Spotify connect

    If you search the forum you'll find several threads on the topic.
    Summary: many would love it. Some know it must be easy to implement, but
    have no clue how to do it. Nobody has come up with working code yet.

The binary provides the device with Spotify Connect functionality, making it possible for users to play and control music on the audio device remotely from the Spotify app

    Simply a definitive no-go?

    Looks like something Logitech could apply for but is there room for it in the Touch fw, or could it run on lms?

    Logitech stopped production of the Touch years ago.

    That said: even if that wasn't the case, integration wouldn't be easy.
    Eg. using Spotify Connect the only available control is Spotify's own
    apps. You couldn't use LMS to control Spotify playback. It's either, or,
    but no combination of both.

    Don't know if this is the connect you are talking about but i can control all my devices from spotify because i have installed the airplay plugin and all of the lms devices act as airplay devices. And spotify can see them and control them...
