Spotify rolling out new feature: 'transfer' playback between smartphone and tablets
This piece of news regarding Spotify doesn't seem to have gotten the attention it deserves.
A new feature for Spotify Connect is being rolled out as we speak to all Spotify accounts (50% or so, thus far), adding the ability to 'transfer' playback between smartphones and tablets running the Spotify app. To be clear: this isn't ordinary streaming, it's actually more of a chromecast-like feature to move the stream from one device to another.
The primary device can then remotely control playback on the 'receiving' device. It's also cross platform, possible to transfer playback from an iOS device to an Android device.
It's really neat!
