It took a while, but you can finally listen to tunes on your Google-powered TV or set-top box.

The Google I/O opening keynote might be over, but that doesn't mean there's any shortage of news from the developer event. Spotify, for one, has announced that it is expanding its reach to TVs and set-top boxes by launching a new Android TV app. It's exactly what you'd expect from a Spotify offering, in that it allows you to browse your tracks, albums and playlists, either with your Android TV remote or with the Spotify app thanks to Spotify Connect.

The app makes the most of your big screen, filling it with album artwork while you play. If you're not already a subscriber, you can sign-up inside the app and you'll be able to listen for free if you don't mind the occasional ad. Of course, you can pay $10 a month to do away with them completely. The app is available to download from the Play Store right now, as long as you've own a supported Sony BRAVIA or Philips TV, Nvidia Shield or Nexus Player.
