Adding one of your Spotify playlists to your Control4 favorites is a great way to quickly access your favorite music.

Follow the instructions below to add your playlist.

In this example, we will add our favorite summer playlist while we enjoy these last few weeks of warmer weather!

  1. Open the Spotify App on your phone and search for a band or playlist.
