    Main Features

    • Showing Current playback of any devices

    • Spotify Controllable by Notification (change device, search and play)


    My MBP was gone a few weeks ago with 12,000 mp3s which I was collecting for my whole life… 😞
    I’ve never used any streaming service, but now have to.
    So I consider to use Spotify. I know there is already some modules about it. Anyway, I need something different. I was playing with Spotify API for my private purpose.

    Just at that moment , @ejay-ibm wanted to control Spotify with voice command through MMM-AssistantMk2. He asked sometimes and I answered. I asked also sometimes he replied…

    And then, Wow, Suddenly This module is born.
    Special Thanks to @ejay-ibm. He gave me great inspiration and motivation to complete this (and real coworking also).

    TODO

    I’ll add touch interface to control Spotify. (somedays)

    Looks nice and touch interface sounds promising



  • Really nice. Do you know if Google Play is possible to have such a module?


  • Module Developer

    @teitlebot
    As far as I know, Kodi could work on Raspberry Pi. But I cannot find API or data which could be used.
    Google Player Music has no official API currently.
    There are some unofficial implements but I’m not sure whether it will work on RPI easily or not.

    @Sean It was a real pleasure to work with you on this project.
    We have a real good Spotify module now that do all in one!
    Fantastic!



  • @Sean @ejay-ibm nice release guys.
    Only could you please replace the plain white Spotify logo with a darker one (like in MMM-NowPlayingOnSpotify)? 😬

    Also Is this a stand-alone Spotify module?
    And if yes is it mandatory then to have a (Spotify) Premium account?

    In addition:
    I noticed that the module doesn’t go into ‘standby’ view once I end playing music until I restart MagicMirror.

    Thanks for using

    1. You can replace image file by yourself (It is under resources directory). Feel free to change it as your wish.
    2. This is not stand-alone player. Originally, I was developing stand-alone player with new Web Playback API but unfortunately, current Electron/Chromium on RPI miss core feature about that. Somedays, when Electron/Chromium on RPI has that feature, I’ll implement. Currently you need RASPOTIFY to play spotify on RPI. (Or any other spotify-enable device like smartTV, smartphone, or smartspeakers)
    3. You could not controll playback or not use some features without premium account.
    4. Eh, last song cover is better than spotify icon, isn’t it? 😃
      spotify icon will be appeared when there is no possible playback or device. But not sure. I didn’t test about it. If you need that feature absolutely, I’ll consider it on next update.

    @Sean said in MMM-Spotify:

    spotify icon will be appeared when there is no possible playback or device. But not sure. I didn’t test about it.

    @Cr4z33

    Yes that is correct . When nothing is played and all players are disconnected the white spotify icon appear.
    We place that one here just to not have nothing.
    As Sean said this is customizable , you just need to change the png file under the resources directory .

    Enjoy you new module.

    Ejay



  • @Sean @ejay-ibm alright thanks to both of you.
