How to use your phone as a Spotify remote?

One of the things that smartphones like are music apps. And within this category, Spotify is one of the leading applications. Not only because it streams music in high quality but also because when complemented with Spotify Connect it can connect with other devices that have the appropriate software and serve as a remote control.

For example, other computers and smartphones, watches, hi-fis, game consoles, Apple TV devices, televisions, Android TV set-top boxes, etc.

How does Spotify Connect work?

Spotify Connect is a Spotify feature that turns your smartphone into a remote control for music played through Spotify on another device connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

Linking between these devices is a very simple task. As an example, on an Android TV smart television, once the Spotify application is downloaded, you will only have to start a Spotify user session to be linked with the same Spotify account on your iOS or Android smartphone.

On other devices such as the Apple Watch or Samsung Galaxy Watch, it may be convenient to select a Spotify PIN login and then pair the account by following the on-screen prompts.

In any case, Spotify playback can be controlled from the smartphone. Even in the case of having a Premium account, Spotify playback can be controlled from the watch, which provides greater convenience when the phone is linked via Bluetooth to wireless speakers.
