How to listen to Spotify music from Kodi

Although there are several third-party tools to solve Windows bugs that we can use to get out of trouble, the same operating system has already included its own integrated problem solver for some time, which is usually quite efficient in many cases.

Now, with the arrival of the most recent update, the May 2019 Update, or Windows 10 version 1903, the problem solver is now able to suggest solutions and solve problems that are found automatically, you can even do it without you find out if you set it up for it. We explain how.

Decide how you want Windows 10 to solve problems

From the Windows 10 configuration you can choose between several options for the system to solve problems. By default this is set to ask you before correcting problems, but you can change it.

To do this press the Windows key + I, select Privacy and in the menu on the left click on Comments and diagnosis. Go down to the end of the options until you get the one that says “Recommended troubleshooting procedures”:

There you can change for Windows 10 to correct problems without asking, to correct them automatically but to notify you when doing so, to ask yourself before correcting them, or to only correct critical problems.

If you want to have more control over how and when Windows 10 corrects problems, I recommend that you leave the option that comes by default. If on the contrary, you want Windows to fix itself and bother you as little as possible when it encounters problems, then select “Correct problems without asking.”

How to use the recommended troubleshooting procedures

Now, while Windows 10 is able to solve many problems automatically, there are a number of additional recommended procedures that can indicate you to help improve your experience.

These can be things like installing a new driver from the manufacturer’s page or uninstalling a problematic app for example. These are recommendations that you will have to carry out yourself in some cases.

Simply open Windows 10 Settings by pressing the Windows key + I, select Update and security and in the left menu click on Troubleshoot:

If there are problems in your current version of Windows 10 with troubleshooting recommendations, you will see them immediately at the top of the page. Either way, you can browse the full list of problem categories that can help you solve the solver from there.

Note that you can only use the problem solver manually as long as you have not chosen to correct it without asking in the privacy options.

If you have problems with the sound, for example, but Windows does not recommend anything, you can always go to this section and click on Audio playback to find and correct problems:

If all this fails, there are always more things you can try to repair Windows before deciding to format. There is also the option to reset your computer, and soon you can even reinstall Windows from the cloud when there is no more option.

Kodi is one of the best multimedia management applications that exist, if not the best. If you use Kodi or have you ever used it, you may know that the greatest benefit you can get is thanks to its accessories or addons, extras that allow you to do everything and make Kodi your ultimate mediacenter.

Now, Kodi has official addons and many third-party addons that offer additional features. For example, from the Kodi addons search engine itself it is possible to install things like YouTube or Twitch, but it is not possible to install Spotify. For this you need to install an additional repository, and today we will explain how.

Important: before installing this addon you should know that it only works if you have a Premium Spotify account, otherwise do not waste your time. The good news is that you can always access three months of free trial if you have never used it.

If you don’t see the option appear, click on the bottom of the left side menu until it says “Expert”. Once this is activated, return to the Kodi home page.

Add a new repository for your Add-ons

In order to install Spotify on Kodi we need to add an external repository. In this case it is the marcelveldt repository. You need to download the .ZIP file from this link and save it in the folder of your choice.

Now enter Kodi again and click right on Add-ons. Then click on the open-box icon (similar to the Dropbox icon) and select the “Install from a .zip file” option.
