Enhanced listening experience with Spotify Connect on Volumio

If you are a Spotify premium user, you are probably quite used to the spotify app’s user interface, whether it is mobile or on computer.  NanoSound and Volumio now seemlessly support spotify connect with artist and album display on Volumio’s web interface and Nanosound DAC (now DAC2 with Colour) OLED display.  The idea is to control using Spotify App / Web interface and play on Volumio, so that you can enjoy Spotify audio in your HiFi connected to your Volumio.

Here’s the instructions to setup:

  • Under plug-in, install the “Volumio Spotify Connect2” plugin.  (Credit to @balzure and @ashthespy for this great work)

  • After installed, enable the  “Volumio Spotify Connect2” plugin.  You might also like to change the Settings such as start up volume

  • Using Spotify App, you can now see “Volumio” under devices (or whatever name you changed in Volumio)

For NanoSound DAC users:

  • If you are using NanoSound DAC, upgrade NanoSound plug-in to  1.4.2 or above by uninstalling and installing the plug-in again.
  • NanoSound DAC’s display also supports showing the song and artist names played via Spotify Connect.
  • Enjoy full control from Spotify App via NanoSound’s onboard DAC
