The most intuitive and feature-rich remote control for Spotify for Linux



This product is not developed, endorsed or certified in any way by Spotify. Spotify is the registered trade mark of the Spotify Group.

The most intuitive and feature-rich remote control for Spotify for Linux, NOT Windows or Mac OS X.

If you, like me, have a Linux-powered HTPC connected to a good sound system, being able to control Spotify wherever you are, using whatever device you've got, is great.

The Android app alone has been downloaded more than 50,000 times, and SpotCommander is used by lots of people all over the world, every day.

Excellent! I reverted to the old Spotify version and it works flawlessly. Next paycheck I'll be donating! It's fantastic! Thank you so much!

Just brilliant. Never has an app given me more than I asked for. It's got lyrics, your whole Spotify profile and everything. Wonderful. Just wonderful. I am sorry I can't make a donation since I am broke myself (college student), but I am sending my love. Keep up the great work.

Very good. The remote is very fast and the design is much better than the one of the original Spotify app. Amazing!

No problem installing, works like a charm! I hate having to install things on Linux, but I love the Spotify Connect function, which I couldn't use on my Ubuntu laptop. This solved the problem in 2 minutes. Excellent. So far no bugs.

Great tool. This is a great app. The 5 stars goes for the server side as well. As much quality as you'd expect from the official Spotify, which does not exist for Linux.

Amazing app. Stable. Author had lots of attention to detail. This is how an app should be.
- Ian

Brilliant. Repurposed an old Windows netbook with a dead keyboard by installing a lightweight Linux OS. Now it's hidden out of sight, streaming Spotify to a vintage amp via a decent DAC. Excellent sound quality for minimal expenditure. SpotCommander works perfectly, with a load of features. I like how I can even turn the PC off directly from the app.
- Nicole

Awesome. Worked off the shelf with Ubuntu 14.04 without any problems or configuration.
