There's a sub heading that says 'includes Akurate' so not sure if that's significant or not for Majik users.

I've just put the latest beta on our MDSM and Spotify is an available source.
Shame the picture shows a KK and not a KDS/M though!

Sometime I see all 3 Devices, to select one in the Spotify App. if I select one ... nothing happened ... then I see nothing ... few minutes later I see all 3 again ... and the game start again ...

Hi Thomas,

The discovery process happens via Bonjour/multicast DNS, similar to how AirPlay discovery works.

If discovered devices are coming and going, I wonder if you are having problems with multicast DNS messages on your network.

Do you have any other Spotify Connect devices (e.g., a Google Chromecast or an Amazon Fire stick) on your network, and do you experience similar problems with those?

Regards,
Gregg

Hi,

Spotify Connect allows you to stream Spotify Premium content directly to a DS, and control playback of Spotify content on a DS, via the Spotify app.

We have our own Getting Started guide here: Linn Spotify Connect Guide. Spotify also have their own video showing how to use Spotify Connect with mobile devices here: Spotify Connect Video.

Contrary to what the Spotify Gear page may suggest, the current beta provides Spotify Connect support across the entire DS range.

Regards,
Gregg

RE: Using Spotify on a Linn DS
Whoohoo!! It works like a charm.

In Kazoo it says under details that the bitrate is 1411,2kbps. That doesn't seem correct to me...
