Please add an airplay icon next to the normal play icon like when playing videos. Having to go to fullscreen mode is annoying and my parents had to phone me so I could explain how to get airplay working on their iPad. It's not intuitive at all.

 

Also pinch zoom the album art to go to fullscreen mode would be nice instead of having to find that little icon.

Completely agree - i have to use the iPhone app just to Airplay it on my home stereo.  This company has a desktop app - no reason not to add an airplay option... other than money :P

U need to adjust ur router. Its probably in isolated mode. Turn that  of and it will solve your problem.

So in all fairness I haven't read through all the posts and someone may have already brought this up. That being said, I am a premium member and have an iphone and use the airplay feature all the time and it works brilliantly. I airplay spotify through my apple tv onto my wireless tv, which serves as a robust and utterly sufficient  music listening device, so to speak.

 

My question is: why is there not, or is there, an airplay icon on spotify's home menu, so that when seated at my computer and wanting to search/navigate artists and songs I can still airplay and listen through my television, via apple tv, rather than my computer's speakers. 

 

I'm currently having to research/navigate artists, music, etc. on my computer. Then after adding a song to a playlist or generating a new playlist can I access it on my iphone throgh the spotify app and ultimately play it, thourhg airplay onto my tv. 

 

Seems like simply adding an airplay feature/icon onto your homepage would make, at least my life, a hell of a lot easier. 

 

BTW LOVE LOVE LOVE Spotify. Have been a premium member since the days spotify was in its initial UK market launch, of which I was one of your early premium paying customers.... lived in London then. Had to wait a good year or two before having access to it again upon my return state side. Glad you did inevitably cross the pond. 

 

Cheers ;)

Hi There, I fully agree with your post ! There should absolutely be an Airplay Icon on the home menu of Spotify. I am also a premium member and I think this is something that many people are waiting for. Why can it not be added?? I would really appreciate to even activate two music areas (PC in kitchen and Living Room Stereo) and than adjust volumes so I have spotify in my whole house. Apple has a similar option in Itunes and it works fantastic. 

 

Second I would really like to know how and if it is possible to do a double login at the same time. I am very often working out upstairs, using playlist on my Ipad. The PC downstairs shuts off, when loggin in upstairs. Is there a way to get around this, without the need for two premium accounts??
