Airplay in the desktop version of Spotify

I would love to have Airplay built in the app itself, so I don't need another program such as Airfoil.

Status: Not right now

Fair enough.


Perhaps we should have changed this idea to "Not right now" in the first place given the title. Although you can use AirPlay given the new Apple update, I don't think we'll be implementing a setting in the Preferences menu which will enable this.


It's a great idea and maybe we'll come back to it later but for now I'm inclined to mark this as such.

Me to, thats really one of the features that's missing from Spotify.

yeah that must be afraid of apple and their blocking them, itunes wont like that maybe.

There are plenty of other applications that take advantage of AirPlay. Hopefully Spotify will implement this soon.


I'm currently running my audio through AirFoil, but there's lag between the the AirPlay audio and system audio. Was hoping to play Spotify throughout the house, but the delay make it unlistenable between rooms.

I love to use the airplay function in my iPhone app. However, I really miss the function on my PC and Mac.
Please intergrate AirPlay functionallity in the Windows and OSX versions of Spotify, just like in iTunes!

There is a separate program called Airfoil that works really well for me. It does cost $25 but you can download a free test version to be sure it works with your system first.

And there's already an idea about this... check before you post.

Spotify works great with the integrated AirPlay output on OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. It should be available this summer.
