Continue what I'm listening to another device

Hello,

 

Upon arriving at work in care work Spotify to listen to albums, playlists, and radio stations etc, at the end of the day when I'm coming home I take my smartphone to hear more songs on the way, but Spotify still not the music that I was listening Desktop, not remains to radio, it just stopped this last song I heard on my smartphone but not the last song, playlist or radio that my user was listening.

 

I own several dispositos connected to Spotify but I'm a single user, I want a continuation of exepriência.

 

This is a feature that really bothers me on Spotify and one that I liked at Rdio.

 

Thank you

As @johannesdr mentioned, you can already do that with Spotify Connect (premium feature). Please follow the links in his comment for more information about it.

Also any news when it roles out to the desktop officially will be announced here:

This is already mostly possible with Spotify Connect: https://support.spotify.com/us/learn-more/guides/#!/article/spotify-connect/

Although it hasn't rolled out to the desktop/web app yet it is already available in the beta app: http://community.spotify.com/t5/Help-Desktop-Linux-Mac-and/Welcome-to-the-Desktop-Beta/td-p/932803

 

When you play a song on your desktop app and open your smartphone app, you can see the song playing on the desktop, control the playback or take over the playback on your mobile device.

 

But it would be nice if they can take it one step further (as vs_carlos suggests) and sync play history and current play queue across devices.

So you would be able to stop playback of a song on the desktop. Get outside (dicsonnect from the same wifi) and continue the same song (play queue) on your smartphone.

Or even something similar to Google Chrome's recent tabs:

So you would be able to see the last song played on each device and choose which play queue you want to continue.

I am a Premium user and had this feature forced on me. I want the opposite. I want my different workstations to be playing whatever playlist they were on and retain their position like they used to.

 

What Spotify don't do is make this an option.

@EarlPurple You might want to support this idea then. ;)
