Sometimes getting off the couch to change the song that’s playing takes too much effort. Luckily, Spotify feels your pain. The music streaming service now lets you use your phone as a remote control for music playing on your desktop. The feature, called Spotify Connect, is already available for those who own an Amazon Fire TV or one of many Wi-Fi enabled speakers.
Spotify on Friday added a new feature that allows subscribers to use an iPhone or iPad as a remote control for playback on their Mac. The new feature is available for free as part of Spotify’s $9.99 monthly premium subscription. “We’ve just released a great new Premium feature, which lets you play Spotify through your computer, using your phone or tablet as a remote. Use the Spotify app to control the sound. It’s brilliant if your laptop’s hooked up to your speakers. Or if you just don’t want to get off the couch.”
