Hey guys, as first preference I would like to remotely control my spotify library and playlists from my iphone, if not then from an android phone. is there any options for this?

 

If not, then is there any device which will do this please? Thanks.

i found this article last night:

I will try out Premium trial to see if this will do it. The article is suggesting playing music on your phone then connecting to and getting the music to play on the desktop but what I am seeking is to have my desktop running spotify on my speakers and simply using my phone to control spotify, hoping this will be the answer, will report back.

Hi there @hzfombye4j5vtih,

thanks for reaching out to the community !

 

In order to answer your question, i'd have to ask which functionality are you looking for by asking if you can control it ?

 

One Spotify account logged in from different devices shares the same exact content.

Meaning, what's added or deleted, liked or disliked on one devices will appear on the rest of the devices used with the same account.

 

Regardless, you can learn more about Spotify Connect feature here, which is another functionality to manage between devices.

 

Hope this helps.

Waiting on your update 🙂

Hello. I am thinking the normal controls, play x song, next track, previous track

 

and if i can change playlists then perfect.
