Mote.io Now Supports Spotify + New Pandora Stations

The hackers are at it again! Rutgers student, Waynce Change or @wyc on github put together a Spotify remote! This remote works with the web player.

Now you can search, play, pause, backtrack and skip songs on Spotify Web with your phone. I know one person in particular who’s going to be very happy about this!

Chrome will update the extension to the latest version automatically, but if you need to install it head over to the Chrome Web Store.

That brings us to a total of a dozen remotes! We started with just 6 remotes at launch, and although we’ve both created and lost remotes along the way, the current list of supported sites stands strong!

The full list of remotes include:

  • Vimeo
  • Hype machine
  • Google Play music
  • Grooveshark
  • Youtube
  • Pandora
  • Soundcloud
  • Rdio
  • Tunein radio
  • Twitch.tv
  • Last.fm
  • Spotify web

Remember, you can make your own remote or improve existing ones by contributing to the Mote.io Chrome Extension. Hackers like you are responsible for making the last half dozen remotes.

I’m also excited to announce, a very highly requested feature, the ability to change Pandora stations!

Pandora is the most popular remote by far, and the ability to create new stations is the most common feature request.

Now when you synchronize your phone with the Mote.io extension and Pandora, you’ll get a search bar where you can type the name of an artist to use for a new station. Get the update from the Chrome Web Store.

That’s everything for now! Make sure to follow me or the Mote.io account on Twitter for more updates.
