How to install Kodi Spotify addon

Some addons may contain pirated content. Consider using legal Kodi addons or a VPN ($5.52/mo).

In order for you to be able to install the Kodi Spotify addon, you will need to add the Emby Beta addons repository. This is easily done by adding to your sources the correct route. Go to System -> File manager -> Add source and paste or type the following, exactly:

http://www.mb3admin.com/downloads/addons/xbmb3c/kodi-beta-repo/repository.beta.emby.kodi/

After you do this, set a name for the source. Emby Beta Addons will do. Click OK.

Kodi Spotify Plugin sources

Add the Emby Beta addons source to Kodi in order to find the Spotify addon.

This will have added the source to your system. Now, from the main menu again, head to System -> Settings -> Add-ons -> Install from zip file. You will see a list with all the sources you have added and possible locations to install from. Scroll until you find the Emby Beta Addons source you just added, and then click it. Select the .zip within the Emby Beta repository, typically named repository.beta.emby.kodi-x.x.zip (with the name including the version number). Wait a few seconds and you should get a notification confirming it was installed.
