Spotify has been busy lately. Just recently they announced their new family plans, and now they’ve launched a new way to control your streaming music.

On Friday, November 7, Spotify officially unveiled Spotify Connect, a new way for users to control the music that’s playing on their computer with a remote on their smartphone. With Spotify Connect, users can open up the Spotify app and then switch control over to the computer. From there, skipping songs, pausing tracks, or even turning up the volume are all possible without being near the computer.

We’ve just released a great new Premium feature, which lets you play Spotify through your computer, using your phone or tablet as a remote. Use the Spotify app to control the sound. It’s brilliant if your laptop’s hooked up to your speakers. Or if you just don’t want to get off the couch.

The remote feature works on a smartphone and a tablet, and is available right now for Premium members.
