If you are looking for the best Bluetooth speaker for Spotify, you came to the right place. Although we said Bluetooth and included two speakers that don’t have Bluetooth connectivity on our list, we choose them because they are the ultimate Spotify speakers! Think of them as an MVP, if you will
While Spotify supports lots of speakers, the vast majority are either overpriced or not recommended by low- end brand names. A bad speaker is not worth it just because it supports Spotify. In Spotify connect, let’s take a crash course and then take a look at our top picks.
Spotify Connect is a feature that lets you control other devices that can directly stream music from Spotify on your phone using the Spotify app. You can use Spotify Connect to select which music to play from the app on your phone if you have a speaker that can stream from Spotify directly. The absolute best thing is that the speaker performs the actual streaming— as if you’re sending a Netflix show on your phone from your Netflix app to your Chromecast — which saves the battery life of your phone and gives you the freedom to use it to call, play games, or anything else but to interrupt the music. As Rihanna said, “Please don’t stop the music!”

Sonos was the first major company with several-room streaming speakers to succeed, so it’s not surprising that they made this list. Spotify was supported by their speakers because anyone cared about Spotify before speakers supported it. The Sonos One is your first Alexa Voice Control smart speaker (including Spotify’s voice control). A Sonos One can be connected to Amazon, Google Music, Apple Music, Audible and many other services, as well as direct streaming from Spotify.
Sonos has multi-room audio as its headline feature. The key is that you can set up multiple Spotify speakers to assign a room, such as a kitchen or a bedroom, or to each person (or group). You can then control them of all in every room using the application to play different things(or the same thing). This is an excellent way to build your house, condo, cabin, or apartment with a complete audio system.
Yes, I know that we have two Sonos speakers in a row. As I mentioned in the beginning, we can not recommend any of the options in good faith from no-name enterprises. However, the Sonos PLAY: 5 is another beast than the Sonos One.
Although the Sonos One sounds great, it is still very small. The PLAY:5 is much larger and therefore includes six amplifiers and six drivers with specialist speakers. You can even set two of them up as a stereo speaker if you live in an open-plan warehouse. In a still fairly compact and looks as a great package, this is a huge amount of audio power. PLAY:5 supports all the same services as One and both can be used in the same Sonos configuration. Alexa can even be supported by PLAY:5 when connected to an echo or echo dot. What’s life without Alexa?
Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless
A classic sneaker with an iconic look, the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin is so popular because it emerged at the front and for good reason with an iPod dock of 30 pins. It sounds great and… bigger. Two double dome tweeters, two midrange drivers, and a 6,5 ” subwoofer are available to deliver great sound irrespective of the type of music you hear. Although Zeppelin only supports Spotify as a streaming service, it has Bluetooth and AirPlay (yes, it’s still one thing).
Bose SoundTouch 10
The SoundTouch 10 is the youngest of the Bose family, a speaker that sounds at least twice as small as it is. This is the specialty for BOSE: to create speakers and small speakers that sound exceptional. It might not be perfect for an outdoor party, but it provides a sound which is rich, clean, and steady Even when you raise the volume to the maximum, it does not distort because some key protection and limitations of sound will be activated.
It connects through Wireless to your home network and you can control it from your phone using your own Soundtouch application. Plus, it can run from online radio, from a dedicated music server or from dedicated services such as Google Music, Spotify or Amazon Music. Apple AirPlay Attention, from the second version, the 2018 version, runs only through Bluetooth.
Bose SoundTouch 10 tops as the best Bluetooth speaker for Spotify! Gold medal contender for sure!
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay A9
When you see the Beoplay A9, you will be utterly amazed. It is considered as the speaker that no one needs, but everyone wants one! This speaker provides a high quality sound and is able to play it at high volume without distorting it.
Beoplay A9 can be used with Spotify, as well as Airplay. It supports Bluetooth connectivity and DLNA. Sadly, this speaker does not have Alexa support or any voice commands. But we hope that will change in the future.
This speaker is about the size of a kitchen chair, making it less ideal to carry it from spot to spot. It is a great speaker to have in a corner of your room or one to hang on your wall. But it compensates the portability issue with its high sound quality.
When it comes to selecting the best Bluetooth speaker for Spotify, it’s up to your personal preference. You might be looking for the Beoplay A9 if you want a huge speaker in your room, or for something smaller like the Sonos One, that can be carried around easily, much like your teacup poodle or little lap dog! Spotify has come a long way: and with its extended support for portable speakers, it is much more enjoyable.
