  1. The libspotify key generation and retrieval service has been deprecated, along with libspotify. What can i do to play spotify?

    1. You are right. Unfortunately, it deprecated and I know no ways to get Spotify audio stream in any application 🙁 But it works, and you can try to ask someone for the key. I hope Spotify will give developer access again. Thank you.

    1. No, you can create only one Spotify player, but you can assign as many rooms as you want to this player. Please note that the old Spotify API is now deprecated. It may still function for users who have obtained API keys, but it is no longer recommended for use. We are looking for new possibilities to support Spotify.
