While we're still awaiting music-streaming service Spotify, happy Europeans can use Squeezebox Touch and Squeezebox Radio players to stream their Spotify Premium playlists from. This is the second hardware manufacturer Spotify has signed up with, after Sonos.
Spotify arrives on Logitech Squeezebox
Morges, Switzerland - Jan. 10, 2011 - Logitech today announced that it has joined forces with Spotify® to support the popular music service on the Logitech® Squeezebox™ network music players.
Using your existing wireless home network and your Squeezebox Touch or Squeezebox Radio player, you can now access Spotify's comprehensive catalogue of more than ten million songs, including your Spotify playlists, anywhere in the home.
"Spotify represents a new breed of music service, offering high-quality, instant access to the world's music," said Romain Du Gardier, senior product manager for Logitech EMEA.
"Whatever music you like from wherever in the world, Spotify and Squeezebox make it even easier for you to sit back, listen and relax in any room in your home," added Du Gardier. "Logitech is delighted to add Spotify to its family of online music services for the Squeezebox product line."
Spotify provides instant access to whatever music you want, whenever and wherever you want it, through both free-to-the-user and paid subscription offers.
To enjoy Spotify on your Squeezebox Touch or Squeezebox Radio, all you'll need is a Spotify Premium subscription, which in addition will give you CD-quality 320 kbps sound, offline and mobile access, as well as exclusive music content.
"Today people want to be in total charge of what music they listen to and where they listen to it," said Pascal De Mul, Global Head of Hardware Partnerships for Spotify. "They demand total access to everything the music world has to offer, instantly, simply and in great quality. Our collaboration with Logitech gives people that ability, allowing everyone to listen to the world's music in every corner of the house."
A fully featured test version of the Spotify app for Squeezebox Touch and Squeezebox Radio owners is available today in Beta form from MySqueezebox.com, prior to a full rollout expected in the very near future.
