Boxee Box Spotify functionality nears desktop's
Boxee has just detailed an update to the Spotify app on its hardware. The Boxee Box app now has a full search feature, giving an easier way to find specific tracks in Spotify's catalog. They can filter by song name, artist, or album.
The inbox now reflects that of the desktop PC version of the app, letting users know when friends share a song, album, or playlist. A notification icon will display this info, along with the sender's name. A shuffle feature has been added for more hands-off playback.
Accessing Spotify on the Boxee hub needs a $10 per month Premium subscription.
