Spotimc is an addon that gives you access to the Spotify music service. It requires a Spotify premium account.

Please note that it's still in beta stage, so expect some minor issues here and there. There's lots of room for improvement, so contributions are very much appreciated.


Windows, Linux and OSX. IOS and Android not supported (yet). Requires at least XBMC Frodo (v12.0) to run.


Latest release: 1.0-beta5.


Grab the latest installation zip file, and inside XBMC go to Home > System > Settings > Add-ons > Install from zip file, and select the file you just downloaded. Once installed you can run the addon from Home > Music > Addons > Spotimc.
