Users of third generation Teufel streaming products will find they can now stream music using Spotify Free via the Teufel Raumfeld App or by logging onto spotify.com to take advantage of the services the free tier offers.
Teufel, one of Germany’s largest manufacturers of audio products, uses the proprietary Raumfeld technology in its Hi-Fi, home cinema and wireless multi-room speakers. Now it has opened this up to include Spotify, meaning owners can sign up to the service and use the free subscription tier to access a world of new music.
Although there are some limitations to Spotify’s entry level tier such adverts, the inability to download tracks, the lower quality audio (though still perfectly listenable) and the limited number of tracks that can be skipped before a user effectively ends up listening to a radio-style playlist of their favorite artists. All of these limitations are removed with a Premium account but the free option still gives plenty of scope to access the 30 million plus tracks in Spotify’s library.
And there’s one other useful function that Spotify recently opened up to free subscribers, the ability to use Spotify Connect to stream music over Wi-Fi to compatible speakers around the home.
This is where Teufel now benefits from the addition of Spotify. Merely creating a free account means that music fans can stream their favourite tunes directly to compatible Teufel products such as smart speakers and soundbars. This can be done using either the Teufel Raumfeld App, the mobile Spotify App or via the Spotify website, since using a mobile device is no longer necessary once the account has been set up.
Are there any Teufel users out there who’ve had a chance to sue the newly included Spotify service? If so, let us know how you’re getting on with it.
