Spotify Testing New Nearby Device Feature

by Odedara BolajiAugust 13, 2019

Spotify is testing a new feature on mobile devices. The company is working on a new nearby device feature that will make it easier for users to switch playback to their most-used device whenever they are nearby.

The new feature works by first asking users if they want to set a “favorite” device within Spotify Connect, and once a favorite device is set, Spotify will ask you whether you want to start playback on that device whenever you are around the device.

So for example, I have my T&G speaker set as my favorite device (“TG 106” on Spotify), and every time I come home from outside, Spotify detects that the T&G speaker is nearby, and sends a notification asking if I want to start playing on the speaker.

I can then switch playback from my phone to my T&G right from the notification.

Spotify has recently been working on beefing up its Spotify Connect feature that allows users to control playback across devices.
