    Why is Spotify missing from my SBT?

    I see threads on here about Spotify no longer supporting SBT. Is this true??

    I have Triode's app running on my laptop, but I've mainly used the app on the SBT itsellf. Now my library has disappeared!

    Can I get my library somehow transferred over to the Triode app? Is there anything else I can do?

    Frankly, this is the main reason I HAVE an SBT. It's outrageous that support for an app THAT I PAY FOR has stopped.

    What happened was that Spotify finally made good on the promise they made years ago to shut down the interface used by Logitech and numerous other companies. So perhaps we can be angry with Spotify for not keeping an abandoned API running indefinitely.
    But you did not pay anyone to make it work with your SBT. Spotify made this API and library available at no cost, Logitech made the app available at no cost and provided hosting for it on mysqueezebox.com at no cost to you.
    And either way, Logitech isn't going to keep mysqueezebox running forever, considering that the Squeezebox line was dropped long ago (in consumer electronics terms) so it would never be a long term solution even if Spotify hadn't shut it down.
    Be thankful that there is a way to keep Spotify working for you.
