Hey! As we don't officially support Linux, it's hard to say if and when we will implement new features.

It is already implemented, but you need to use version 1.0.x of Spotify that is only in the testing repository, so far.

 

Follow the instructions on https://www.spotify.com/download/linux/ but replace stable with testing, like this:

 

# 1. Add the Spotify repository signing key to be able to verify downloaded packages
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys BBEBDCB318AD50EC6865090613B00F1FD2C19886

# 2. Add the Spotify repository
echo deb http://repository.spotify.com testing non-free | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/spotify.list

# 3. Update list of available packages
sudo apt-get update

# 4. Install Spotify
sudo apt-get install spotify-client
