Spotify Connect turns one: new partners, new devices and now on your Smart TV

  • Confirming Bose, Panasonic and Gramofon as partners with more to be announced at IFA
  • Introducing Spotify Connect on Smart TVs and Multi Room systems 

Last year, Spotify launched Connect, a new home audio experience that lets you play millions of tracks through your speakers and Smart TVs, using the Spotify app on mobile and tablet as a remote. Simple, seamless and hassle-free.

In just one year, Spotify Connect has become available on more than 80 speakers and home audio systems from the world’s leading brands. Before the end of the year, that number will rise to over 100 devices, and with products ranging from €50 to €2000, there’s something for everyone.

And today we’re announcing even more new partners, including Bose, Panasonic, and Gramofon. With a broad range of high quality devices, these partners are further increasing the range of Spotify Connect, meaning even more people can enjoy million of tracks in their homes. Gramofon, by leading Wi-Fi network FON, is part of an exciting new category of products that allows consumers to upgrade their existing stereos with Spotify Connect.

We’re also happy to announce that for the first time Spotify Connect will be available on Smart TVs and Multi Room systems:

  • Smart TVs. Introducing the first Spotify Connect enabled Smart TVs. Philips TVs powered by Android™ now allow you to enjoy your music straight from your TV. Simply pick up your smartphone, tablet, or Philips TV remote to seamlessly control and play your favourite tunes on your TV. The Philips TVs powered by Android™ are the first in a long line of Smart TVs to launch with Spotify Connect.
  • Multi Room. Spotify Connect is now available on a number of Multi Room systems, allowing you to group several speakers in your home to play the same music. And if you have several Spotify users in your family, you can stream music from different accounts in different rooms – so everyone can listen to their favourite music.

“Our mission with Connect was to give people a better way to listen at home, and we have delivered exactly that for music fans all over the world in just one year,” says Sten Garmark, VP Product at Spotify. “We wanted to offer a broad range of devices, and our partners have delivered an incredible range of innovative Multi Room systems, receivers, radios and dongles for every budget. This is just the beginning. Our goal is to put Connect devices into the home of every music fan on the planet.”
