Hi

It does not looks like we are going to get Spotify Connect for BS5 ;-(

However, does anyone know that the cheapest system is that I can get to have Spotify Connect?

I then want to attach the system to the USB interface of my BS5, so I dont need a Spotify Connect speaker.

Just like PM or Airport Express with audio out, just also including Spotify Connect.

Thanks.

Hi,

Please se ignore this post. I managed to install it through a USB stick and it works well.

I am dealing with this right now...  the B&O rep came to my house and confirmed that B&O will not update their support to the Spotify app and admitted about all the bugs they have.  For example, Spotify Playlists no longer work on the Beosound5.

 

I tried your approach but unfortunately, my BeoMaster isn't connecting to BeoConnect - need to debug that one first

No need for 'debugging' there.

The BeoConnect is not supported in newer OS.

Map the BM5 drive on your PC/Mac instead and drag and drop your files from there.

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

We inform you hereby that the Spotify functionality in the near future will be removed from the BeoSound 5.

 

This change does not only affect Bang & Olufsen products, but also includes other brands that use the Spotify implementations. In addition, Spotify will also send a message to customers who use products to which the amendment refers.

No, the solution is to connect an Behringer UCA 222 with an Chromecast Audio or an Essence

If this is true it is very disappointing for a product that was still being sold a couple of years ago.

Spoke to my B&O dealer today, and he confirmed that the Spotify support for BS5 is being discontinued.

sad news really. Makes the BS5 a limp product. Looks like the BS Moment is the next natural progression. Still like the look of the BS5 better.

I bought mine end 2015 from a b&o dealer in vienna. So my beosound5 is not that old. It´s a big shame for b&o if there is no Spotify function in the software in the future. This was the reason for the purchase.

BS Ouverture, BS 9000, AV 9000, Avant 32 DVD, BV9, BV6-22, BS 5, BS 4500, BS 7000, BC 9500, Beo6, BL Penta, F1000, BLGW, etc....

Don't know if is any use, but I have disabled auto software updates on BS5. The unit still works, although slow...

I suspect lifestyle AV will have quite a few BS5s appearing on their site pretty soon. Whilst I bought my BS5 before the Spotify integration happened, I now listen to Spotify much more than my ripped CDs. To lose it after 3 or 4 years is a real backwards step.

So I now have to listen to Spotify through my a2 or a1 rather than BL18s. Not quite the same.
