[Hardware] Small Player just with Spotify

I take Spotify wherever I go, listening using my Android phone. But that costs battery. I could buy an iPod, but I'm not that into Apple and buying an iPod just for Spotify is just way too expensive.


I was thinking, couldn't you guys make a MP3 player packed with Spotify? Works the same way as the iPod/Android app, packed with WiFi to Sync playlists and stuff. Maybe an Equalizer too. But in my opinion it would be great! I think alot of Spotify Mobile users will like this too.

You can now sync your iPod Nano or Shuffile with Spotify.  Spotify is not in the business of making hardware.  They should focus on improving their software and user experience.

I have been searching for info on syncing Shuffle with Spotify.  So far I have only learned that files must be local.  Is there new help text that explains how to do this?

Yes, my Ipod Classic has long been dead and buried.


LIke the Sony Walkman which syncs with their music service, Spotify should find an outlet. A mobile can only hold so much data.

I'm actually making such a device, however have been behind on deadlines due to other commitments. I'm really hoping to have a basic beta model ready in the next couple months or so.

I know I'm posting in an old topic, but https://community.spotify.com/t5/Spotify-Ideas/Small-Portable-Player/idi-p/957311 is closed.
Is there any update regarding this question? Cyberlane Did you finished your device?


I have searched on the internet for a device only used for Spotify, but I can't find much...
The only thing that I have found is a small Android smartphone for < €100: Motorola Moto E


Just 4 more kudos to go..

Surely more people must acknowledge the need for Spotify on portable devices other than phones??


Surtainly a great idea. I live in an old house, the walls are very thick brick and bluetooth signals don't quite work. I have my private bar area in the back of the house, where we have our own audio system, connected with wall sockets and speakers throughout the house. My computer is in my bedroom (can not be replaced), and I want to find a way to connect Spotify to that audio system. I do have a faint Wifi signal in the bar, just enough to stream music through. My phone is no option because Spotify will always try to sync, pumping my phone full of data until it's unusable and also I want my phone to be in my pocket and not always connected to my mixer. An affordable mp3 like device running only Spotify via WiFi will be perfect to connect to my system, allowing me to listen to my music everywhere in my house. 




for that I suggest you buying a Gramofon, which does what you want, streaming Spotify music through wifi to any audi system.

I have it and it works flawlessly 😄

Also check out a similar product called Rocki Play. They aren't perfect, but pretty cool.


have a look at the Neptune pine, full android 4 Device than can run the spotify client in a package that is 3" x 2". Using mine as a replacement for my ipod shuffle. have a hunt around as I picked up a 16gb one for less than £60.
