Update to the Spotify Accessible App

An update is coming to the Spotify Accessible App this June (2021) that will allow you to choose your playback device when you open the grid set. This means you can play music through other devices logged in to your Spotify account, for example your Amazon Echo, Smart TV, iPad or Sonos.

This also means you can continue to listen to music even if you exit the Spotify grid set – making it more practical if you need to use Grid for something else.

A list of available devices will automatically appear when you launch the updated grid set. Once a device is selected you can then use the grid set as normal.

You can still use your communication aid as your playback device, however you will need to install the Spotify Windows app first, and log in to the same Spotify account as you are using in Grid 3. Once installed, Grid will automatically launch the Spotify Windows app in the background.
