Spotify arrives on Logitech Squeezebox
London, England - Jan. 10, 2011 - Logitech today announced that it has joined forces with Spotify® to support the popular music service on the Logitech® Squeezebox™ network music players.
Using your existing wireless home network and your Squeezebox Touch or Squeezebox Radio player, you can now access Spotify's comprehensive catalogue of more than ten million songs, including your Spotify playlists, anywhere in the home.
"Spotify represents a new breed of music service, offering high-quality, instant access to the world's music," said Romain Du Gardier, senior product manager for Logitech EMEA.
"Whatever music you like from wherever in the world, Spotify and Squeezebox make it even easier for you to sit back, listen and relax in any room in your home," added Du Gardier.
"Logitech is delighted to add Spotify to its family of online music services for the Squeezebox product line."
Spotify provides instant access to whatever music you want, whenever and wherever you want it, through both free-to-the-user and paid subscription offers.
To enjoy Spotify on your Squeezebox Touch or Squeezebox Radio, all you'll need is a Spotify Premium subscription, which in addition will give you CD-quality 320 kbps sound, offline and mobile access, as well as exclusive music content.
"Today people want to be in total charge of what music they listen to and where they listen to it," said Pascal De Mul, Global Head of Hardware Partnerships. "They demand total access to everything the music world has to offer, instantly, simply and in great quality. Our collaboration with Logitech gives people that ability, allowing everyone to listen to the world's music in every corner of the house."
A fully featured test version of the Spotify app for Squeezebox Touch and Squeezebox Radio owners is available today in Beta form from MySqueezebox.com, prior to a full rollout expected in the very near future. Spotify is currently available in Finland, France, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the U.K.

Spotify comes to Logitech Squeezebox, makes non-Europeans mildly jealous
Spotify still won't say when its streaming music service will come to the US, but its 10 million songs will play on two more devices from here on out: starting today, the Logitech Squeezebox Touch and Squeezebox Radio can get their 320kbps groove on. (Sonos, eat your heart out.) A free beta version of the music app should appear on the MySqueezebox website at any moment -- though it doesn't seem to be there right now -- followed by "a full rollout expected in the very near future," a promise which we can't quite translate, but might mean support for even more devices down the road. Of course, Spotify's something of a given for Logitech's next Squeezebox, if it happens to run Android. PR after the break.
