The Spotify service is a very popular streaming music service, not only among smartphone lovers but also among users who use their laptop or desktop computer every day. Spotify has an official client for all platforms, including Gnu / Linux, although we have to say that officially Spotify still does not recommend Gnu / Linux as a platform to use.
And despite this, we currently have two options to install the official Spotify client.
These two ways can be installed on Debian 9 and fully functional within this Gnu / Linux distribution. We have already talked to you about the first way of installation. In this article We tell you in detail how to install the official Spotify client through external repositories. But thanks to the new universal package formats, we can install the official Spotify client with a couple of commands.
There are two different ways to install the official Spotify client on Debian 9
First we have to install the snapd manager, the snap app manager. To install it, we just have to open the terminal and write the following:
sudo apt-get install snapd
After several minutes downloading and installing the necessary packages, we can now install the Spotify application as follows:
sudo apt-get update <span data-mce-type="bookmark" style="display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;" class="mce_SELRES_start"></span>sudo snap install spotify
Now we have the official Spotify client. To open it, or we look for it in the menu of our graphic desktop or we write in the terminal «Spotify» followed by the enter key, after which the program that we have installed will be executed.
The official Spotify client is a great app but currently there are other unofficial applications that contain extra functionalities such as desktop applets or remote control. In any case, this application is still interesting to set our working days Do not you think?
