Installation #

IMPORTANT: Make sure you have the Spotify app installed and that you are logged in or your test device!

First, add spotify_playback as a dependency in your pubspec.yaml file.

Afterwards, download the Spotify Android SDK here and move the spotify-app-remote-release-x.x.x.aar file to android/app/libs/ in your project.

Then initialize the spotify playback sdk like this

  void initState() {

  /// Initialize the spotify playback sdk, by calling spotifyConnect
  Future<void> initConnector() async {
    try {
      await SpotifyPlayback.spotifyConnect(clientId: "", redirectUrl: "").then(
          (connected) {
        if (!mounted) return;
        // If the method call is successful, update the state to reflect this change
        setState(() {
          _connectedToSpotify = connected;
      }, onError: (error) {
        // If the method call trows an error, print the error to see what went wrong
    } on PlatformException {
      print('Failed to connect.');

After this you can use all the available methods
