Spotify is a popular proprietary music distribution and listening service. It has an official client for Linux systems, although it is not updated as frequently as its Windows and macOS counterparts.

How to Install

Copy and paste this entire command as a whole into a terminal.

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp:// --recv-keys BBEBDCB318AD50EC6865090613B00F1FD2C19886 && echo deb stable non-free | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/spotify.list && sudo apt update && sudo apt install spotify-client

Running the Windows client through WINE

The Windows version of the client works in WINE. However, some functions such as handling of spotify:// links requires scripts to work with the WINE version.
