We just received the following announcement from Spotify:

“We want to give you a heads up that Spotify support will soon be removed from your Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 5 speaker. 

We want to make playing Spotify on your speaker and other devices better and easier which means regrettably that we sometimes have to discontinue device-specific integrations.

For alternative ways to keep enjoying Spotify on your product, please contact your Bang & Olufsen store.


 

Thanks and keep rocking, 
Spotify”

We have a BeoSound 5 connected to B&O speakers.  What does this announcement mean for us?  What are the “alternative ways to keep enjoying Spotfy on your product?”

Hey everybody,

therefore i think it is important to keep this thread alive, keep calling your dealer or regional manager. Tell them it is unacceptable. If they want they can solve it.

I agree, keep sending support requests to B&O as well that you are not satisfied with their solution.

They have the new Spotify code available that Spotify have shared with B&O.

BV7-40 MKIII, BC6-26, BV4-50/BS2, BS5, BS9000, BL3500, MLGW, BLGW, PlayMaker, Beo6, Beo5, BeoTimex2, Linctonic, BS6500, BS4500,LX6000

Went to my dealer yesterday, and even though they try at their level to find a solution for their customers they don't get any support from B&O itself apart from the three suggested (underachieving and stupid,...) solutions.

here you will see that, compared to BS5 owners, this thread concerning Squeezebox gets more traction.

At least for Squeezebox owners there seems to be a solution:

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

To charger, I have used 400w power inverter to charge shaver when camping outside. In other days, I will use it to charge laptop, phone and camera battery in car. The method for us to use this tool is to connect it with car cigarette lighter charger outlet. If you need to catch more information about this charger, you can search bestekmall on Google. Wish this tip is helpful to you. Best regards.

There is a post with almost the same words.
