    Announce: We're updating the official Spotify app

    Here's some good news for to start in the weekend: Early next week I'm going to roll out a major overhaul of the official Spotify app for the Squeezebox. Which basically means: you'll have an experience which is much closer to Spotify's official offerings. Eg. browsing playlists, genres and moods, suggestions of the moment (currently "TGIF!") etc.

    Now before anyone asks: unfortunately no, we still cannot stream to your SB Classic, SB Receiver, SB Boom, or Transporter.

    There's one more important change: before you can use the new Spotify implementation with your Squeezebox, you'll head over to mysqueezebox.com to give the account access to your Spotify account. After you've entered username and password, you'll need to go through Spotify's authentication process. It's easy and basically just a few mouse clicks starting on the Spotify settings page:

    You better don't use Spotify on your SB as the alarm clock until the migration is fully done :-).

    I plan to roll out these changes Tuesday next week. Please let me know should you then encounter any issues.

    PS: I'm really sorry, but we really cannot make this happen on the old SB ip3k players.

    No. That's not in our power to change.

    Nice!

    Is it possible in this app to use saved artists/albums in spotfy instead of playlists?
    Will it automatically update?

    This is good news indeed. Will this plugin be compatible with older versions of LMS, like 7.7.3?

    All the changes are server-side (on mysb.com). Therefore it should be
    compatible with all LMS versions. There are some tweaks to the Spotify
    plugin, but they are mostly about cleaning up now defunct code.

    I'm sorry, no. Spotify's Library support in the API is rather limited.

    > Will it automatically update?


    No, I'll have to do it :-). But yes, for you as a user there will be
    nothing to do, but go to mysb.com to grant mysb.com permission to access
    your Spotify profile.
