Spotify has released its first app for Android TV, letting subscribers browse their music collection on a big screen. The app is available on the Play Store right now, but requires Android TV 5.0 or above. Spotify says the software works with Android TVs including those built by Philips and Sony, and you can find a full list of compatible devices here.

In terms of utility, it seems like the app does everything you'd expect. You can play songs, albums, and playlists, and control your music using either a Android TV remote or your smartphone or tablet (connected via Spotify Connect). You don't need to be a paying subscriber to use the app either, though you will have to sit through all the usual adverts then. Still, at least you can look at all that pretty album art.
