Spotify, TuneIn and Deezer must be set up for use with BeoSound 2. This means that you must enter your credentials in the Bang & Olufsen app. If you do not have an account, you can sign up from the webpages:
(Deezer and Spotify must be at least Premium accounts)
Note that TuneIn, Deezer and Spotify may not be available on all markets.
