[Partnership] Sony Smart-TV

Status: Case Closed

I think it would be awesome if you would make Spotify available for Sony Smart-TV. I bought a Sony Smart-TV three weeks ago and was disappointed that I couldn't get Spotify as an app. Could you PLEASE make a Spotify version that would work on my Sony Smart-TV

Updated on 2018-02-07

Hi everyone, in 2017 we removed the built-in Spotify app from some TVs (specific models detailed below). You can instead use Spotify Connect or other supported connections to play and control the music from the same app you use on mobile, tablet, and desktop. Check out alternative ways to get Spotify on your TV below, or head to www.spotify.com/tv

Which TVs does this affect?

PHILIPS & SONY TVS 

Instead of having a specific Spotify app, newer TVs from these manufacturers will include an integration with Google Cast and Android TV which you can use to stream Spotify on your TV. 

If you have an earlier model, the Spotify app will be removed from them on June 21st, 2017. Check out more ways to connect to Spotify below.

SAMSUNG TVS

The app will not be available on Samsung’s Legacy operating system on some 2015 and prior devices.

To check if your Samsung TV supports Spotify:

  1. Head to Samsung’s app store here.
  2. Browse and select Spotify, under Lifestyle.
  3. Click Check your device in the top-right.

How else can I play Spotify on my TV?

SPOTIFY CONNECT 

Trade your TV remote for your phone and control the music on the big screen from the mobile app. Check out Spotify Connect.

GOOGLE CAST 

This genius device simply plugs into the back of your TV, enabling you to cast the Spotify app to the big screen. Check out Spotify on Google Cast

ANDROID TV 

Our app is still available on Android TVs and Android Set-Top Boxes. Check out Spotify on Android TV

AIRPLAY

Seamlessly stream between your Apple devices, including your Apple TV. Check out Spotify and Airplay.

SPOTIFY ON PLAYSTATION 

Listen as you game, or simply use your console as a stereo! Check out Spotify on PlayStation.

Most of Smart TVs, not only those made by Sony use Opera TV Store and Opera Web Engine (more info on http://dev.opera.com/tv). Making an app compatible with it will also allow to use Spotify on Smart TVs from other manufacturers. IMHO it should be considered by Spotify as one of next things to do.

Yes please. Have been a Spotify user for years. Just got a new Sony 4k TV, but do I really have to resort to Sony Unlimited for my music streaming ?

YES! I can't understand why this is such an issue 😞 surely just make an app or allow internet search access to spotify account to play through wirelessly connected smart TV?? PLLEEEEEEASE! or I won't have any way of playing spotify in my new home.
