Spotify Connect "speaker mode" for desktop app

I have an HTPC connected to my home stereo that runs Spotify desktop so I can use Connect to control music on it from my mobile/tablet/laptop. However, as I'm logged in with my Spotify account on the HTPC, I am the only family member who can use it. Spotify Connect enabled amps and speakers allow anyone running Spotify to connect to it. I would love to be able to put the desktop app on my HTPC in a mode that allows this as well.
