Play on shared device with Spotify Family

So i recently upgraded to Spotify Family so my Wife and I can listen simultaneously.

We both have smartphones and love the "Play on other Device" feature to remotely control our PCs.

 

Our problem is that we have one shared PC in our living room with good audio equipment. Spotify runs 24/7 on that PC in order to use that "Play on other Device" feature. Since we are using the family option, the user who is not logged in on the shared PC cant use the "Play on other Device" feature.

 

Therefore my question wether or not it is possible to allow another user within the same family plan to play music on a shared PC?

Hey @CodeTron,

 

Yeah that's possible but whoever would like to play some music on the PC would have to log out of the Spotify account that's currently logged in and log into their own account.


Hope this helps :)

I agree 100%. There needs to be a feature to allow a player to be remote controlled from a different account to make home-server audio user-friendly.

 

The ability to quickly switch between accounts would be an alternative that's not quite as ideal (but still be better than what we have right now).
