    Spotify working on Squeezebox touch?

    Hello, I just got a Squeezebox touch left by one sister for years, not very familiar with it. It's still working and sounds great. But I Just want to see whether I can use Spotify with it?

    Thanks in advance.

    However, you will have to install LMS first.
    This is an application that can run on all sorts of different systems - including MS Windows, MAC and plenty of Unix/Linux systems including Raspberry Pi.
    It needs to be running whenever you want to listen to Spotify on your Squeezebox Touch.

    I see the OP has posted also in the DIY forum.

    I do wonder whether there's a concise introduction to how Squeezeboxes work in relation to LMS and mysqueezebox.com out there somewhere. I suspect that the OP may not know what LMS means if he's just got got hold of a Touch.

    LMS = Logitech Media Server. Available in versions for Windows, Mac, and various Linuxes, including for Raspberry Pi. I run mine on a Raspberry Pi. Spotty is a plugin for LMS that allows you to play from Spotify.

    LMS is a highly capable music streaming platform. Definitely worth reading some of the forum posts here to figure out a bit more about it, it may be a slightly steep learning curve at first.
