Logitech Squeezebox Hooks Up With Spotify

Massive music streamers Spotify have expanded their services further out to Logitech’s Squeezebox internet radio. This deal now means that a PC will no longer be required to use the cloud-based music service.

Before this deal was struck, Sonos was the only music service that could use Spotify without a PC or smartphone. Now that Spotify are further widening their range of users it seems they have big plans for this year. The Telegraph has reported that Spotify planned to launch in the US last year but failed to meet the deadline they set themselves.

Cnet reports that Spotify now joins an assortment of radio stations like the BBC, Facebook, Napster and Last.fm, as well as others in the Squeezebox app. If you want to get the Spotify app then you can do so by taking a trip to the Squeezebox App Gallery. You will also need a Spotify Premium account to get the full benefits, which costs £10 per month. That gives you access to higher bit-rate music at CD-quality 320kbps and also plenty of exclusive tracks; the most important factor is the offline and mobile access on your Android or iPhone device.

You are offered a choice of either the Squeezebox Touch or Squeezebox Radio, and as with all things they both come at a different price. The Touch can be found for around £200 with the Radio available for less at about £120. Both products are available now from the Logitech website but at a higher price.
