Configure the Spotify Streaming Service

The innuOS v2 system does not feature a full Spotify service integration (similar to TIDAL or Qobuz integrations). However the innuOS system does incorporate the Logitech Media Server (LMS) software which does allow to use of Spotify Connect with Innuos Servers by enabling a community-provided plugin for the LMS platform. This means the Innuos system will be accessed as a Spotify Connect device via the Spotify app. This enables sound to be played back from the Innuos system, benefiting from the Innuos sound engine and hardware.

Requirements

  • Innuos system updated with the latest innuOS v2.x;
  • Spotify app working on a supported control device or computer;
  • Innuos System need to in Innuos Standalone Mode

How to enable the LMS Spotify plugin

Please bear in mind that currently the Spotify Connect support depends on a 3rd party plugin (Open Source software) not developed by Innuos, therefore we cannot guarantee that it doesn’t break at some point in the future or that it won’t be removed without prior notice. We are just making it work with our innuOS system and providing it as-is without any warranty or support.

1. Access the LMS settings as per article Access the internal Logitech Media Server (LMS) Software Settings

2. In the Active Plugins section, check if you have the plugin “Spotty”. If it’s not there you will need to install the plugin.

3. To install the plugin follow these steps:

  1. Look in the 3rd Party Plugins Section for “Spotify for Squeezebox. Still Spotty”.
  2. Tick the checkbox on that line and click the Apply button on the bottom-right corner of the screen.
