(Pocket-lint) - Spotify announced earlier this year that Premium subscribers could stream their tunes on Sonos speakers. But what about users of Spotify Free?
Well, both Spotify and Sonos have now revealed that anyone on the Spotify Free tier can stream music on Sonos speakers, thanks to a software update. All you have to do is make sure you're running the latest version of the Sonos app and then head to settings. Here's how to get started.
How to listen to Spotify Free on Sonos speakers
Spotify Free can be played through Sonos speakers directly from Spotify (using Spotify Connect) or through the Sonos app. You can start up playlists with your voice by song title, genre, or mood via Google Assistant on a voice-enabled device. Alexa does not yet work with Spotify Free.
- Be sure you're running the latest version of the Sonos app
- Go to Settings in the Sonos app.
- Go to Services.
- Click Add a Service under Music and Content.
- Then select Set-up or Log-in.
Spotify Free on Sonos lets you shuffle the entire Spotify catalog. It also features 15 on-demand playlists, including playlists like Discover Weekly, Release Radar, and Daily Mix, as well as curated faves like RapCaviar.
