How to install Spotify on Ubuntu [Guide]

Want to use Spotify on Linux but don’t want to use the Windows version in Wine? You’re in luck! Spotify themselves have ported a Linux preview to Debian-based distributions like Ubuntu. This guide will teach you exactly how to install it! Let’s get started!
This guide is specifically written for Ubuntu, but it should work with all Debian-based Linux distributions. Spotify is currently only packaged for distributions with a Debian base, so there is currently no conventional way to install it on a non-Debian based distribution.
Take note at the time of this writing, Spotify is only in the preview stage; it may not be stable and you may run into some issues while using it. Once Spotify comes out of Spotify Linux Preview and goes into public release, you will still be able to use the steps in this guide to download and install ti.
To install Spotify on Ubuntu, do the following:
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 94558F59
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://repository.spotify.com  stable non-free" >>/etc/apt/sources.list.d/spotify.list'
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install spotify-client
Spotify is a terrific service, so it’s great to see that there’s a Linux client so that Linux users can enjoy the service as well. Enjoy!
