One of the most appealing things when it comes to Chromebooks is their lightweight and the possibility to carry them around pretty much just like you would do with a tablet. The best part that comes from this, is the ability to enjoy your media files or favorite music wherever you go. That being said, and since there are a lot of users who would like to install Spotify on their Chromebook we decided to write a small tutorial and teach you how. Some users that are new to using Spotify on Chromebook would ask why would be that so hard? The answer is quite simple. When a random user tries to install Spotify on their Chromebook they will find out that the app is compatible only with operating systems like Mac or Windows. Since you do not want anything else for listening to your favorite music or you already created some playlists that you love with Spotify, do not despair. We have a solution for you!
