Google’s I/O developers conference has come and gone for another year. Among the more intriguing announcements is the news that you can now use Spotify on your Android TV. Here’s how it’s done.
Yesterday, Spotify announced that its music streaming service was coming to TVs and set top boxes via a new Android TV app. You can use the app to browse through your music library, search for new tracks and select/play music on your big screen.
To set up the service, you’ll need an Android TV (duh) and the new app which you can download here. The Spotify Music For Android TV app is free, although if you’re not a Premium subscriber, you’ll naturally need to put up with ads, just like with the standard service. Once it’s up and running, you can control the interface via your TV remote or a phone with Spotify Connect.
