Spotify Kodi addon is available in the Marcelveldt repository as a music add-on. Kodi repositories are a host of multiple Kodi addons under categories like video add-ons, music add-ons, program add-ons, and more.
Also, a Spotify Kodi addon is directly available as an independent addon on GitHub. In this article, you’ll learn how to install the Spotify Kodi addon from Marcelveldt repository along with the direct installation method.
