Spotify is the ultimate connected music player. To keep spotify on top, it needs to take advantage of it's networked nature, and allow users to play from multiple devices simultaniously on the same network.
This does not present a music licensing issue because it would only work over a user's LAN, playing identical content.
Using the local area network, would be possible to syncronize playtime on these devices so that they cue in sync.
Implementation would take minimal research and development, Spotify Connect is already so close to acheiving this ultimate goal of dominating networked media devices.
