Amazon’s Fire TV connects with Spotify

Spotify is coming to Amazon’s Fire TV, with a twist: instead of launching a regular app on the device, Spotify just made the Fire TV a Spotify Connect-capable device (hat tip to Engadget). Like with a number of connected speakers, users can now beam songs from their Spotify app to the Fire TV. It’s all part of Spotify’s efforts to be part of the upcoming connected audio watershed, and for Fire TV owners, it’s one more way to access full albums on the device, with Amazon’s own music app still mysteriously missing in action.
