I am no longer able to access Spotify on the BeoSound 5.  I guess it is no longer supported.  Is there another music streaming system that is supported?  If there is, how do I access the app to get it working on the BeoSound 5?

There are other threads on this topic but the simple answer is no it is no longer supported (since June) and no there is no other supported streaming service.

B&O will provide a free of charge chromecast device and appropriate connectors through your dealer but this doesn't appear to have been widely publicised. I have ordered mine today and am keen to see how it sounds and works.

Hallo, ich habe mir die Spotify Lösung von Fixingit auch via ebay gegönnt. Der von ihm aufgespielte Patch funktioniert wunderbar. Das Spotify auf der Beosound 5 funktioniert wieder wie gewohnt. Covers werden wieder wie früher schön auf dem Display angezeigt. Einzig das Problem mit den von Spotify kreierten Playlisten ist vorhanden. Dies lässt sich aber einfach beheben, indem diese Listen einfach gelöscht werden.

Im Weiteren kann falls installiert über A.AUX auf das bereits bekannte Spotify-Connect zugegriffen werden. Mir macht die Anlage so wieder richtig Spass, so dass ich nun auf SSD umrüsten werde.

It does not work anymore.

Only option is to use Chromecast with USB or install an old version of Spotify directly on BM5.
