Spotify was removed from Roku devices for almost all of 2018, the app has returned to Roku devices in October 2018. That means that you can use Spotify on all Roku devices now – and that’s good news for everyone who uses Roku to listen to music via this app.
Spotify is a truly powerful app, with about 70 million songs in its database that are available to listen to via web browser, mobile apps on Android or iOS, and streaming services like Roku.
What Roku devices support Spotify?
The good news is that Spotify is available on all Roku devices after the Roku Streaming Stick, which was released in 2016. The only condition is that your device should run Roku OS 8.2 or higher.
That means that if you have a Roku device, you’re most likely have a way to use Spotify – and here’s how.
