This is a beta add-on that requires a premium Spotify account and also a web browser on your Kodi device as you will need to authorise the add-on to use your Spotify account.

The add-on utilises the new Web Api for Spotify, this means that all functionality is available as you can see in the other Spotify apps like “Your music” library, editing playlists etc.

The dev has tried to implement a web browser autodetect for all platforms. If it doesn’t work on your platform then you will need to report it.

For more information in the add-on and to report errors please use the official Spotify Beta thread
