Spotify Connect - Control Other iOS or Android Devices

Spotify Connect is cool, but I don't want to have to use a laptop or desktop hooked up to a speaker to make it work. Why not make it so I can control another iOS or Android device, and use my iPhone or Android phone as the remote?

I'm failing to see how my idea is a duplicate of the one on your link. That idea is for the desktop app to control iphone or android devices. My idea is to allow my iPhone or android to control other iPhone or android devices, which is come rely different from the idea you linked to.

@mjbruder  that is already possible. If it doesn't work for you, please post in either the android or ios help sections and someone will take a look at why it isn't working.

Thanks FredJ!

 

I see that now! When I play a song on my iPhone, it prompts me on my iPad if I want to play it over there, and then any song or playlist I switch to plays through my iPad. Very cool.

 

I guess the Spotify Connect announcment wasn't really clear that this was a capability when it said 

"Play Spotify through your speakers, laptop or TV, using the Spotify app as a remote."

 

Or, maybe it was already a capability before Spotify Connect, and I just had no clue!
