This replaces cutespotify. Sorry for the inconveniences this renaming might have brought you.


The Application has been renamed, thus you will lose all your offline music, and have to reload everything.

It is recommended that you uninstall the old application and delete the following directory: "/home/nemo/.local/share/harbour-cutespotify" to free the previously used space


CuteSpot makes it possible to listen to your Spotify songs on Sailfish. It supports both online and offline playback.

A Spotify Premium subscription is required to make use of this application

A huge thanks to the initial developers and to Elleo who ported this app to Sailfish initially.

Please be aware that this version only works with Sailfish version >= 1.0.8.*

(If you are on Sailfish version <=1.0.7.* use Elleo's version: )


Find the sources here:

I'm happy about donations find the link in the about section of the app.


Note about versioning:

Starting from 1.5.2-*: Release 0 is always the harbour version, Release > 0 is always non-harbour compliant version. The harbour version is a limited version with all *.harbour.patch patches applied. This is due to API limitations in harbour.

Application versions:

Works for 'Top' tracks as remote controller, if you have Spotify running (like Android one on the same Sailfish device).

Hutspot doesn't work -- cannot login. Worse: cannot comment on Hutspot.

Use Hutspot. Available on openrepos. Works great.

Hey guys, just for your information: This app doesn't work anymore because spotify closed it's API "libspotify" which should've actually stopped working in 2016 but somehow spotify still supported requests. Since end of 2018 they are slowly fully quitting the support - that's why it doesn't work anymore. Currently the only possibility would be using the web API/SDK but this wouldn't support downloading and other features - so please don't blame the developer and wait until Spotify releases a "real" alternative API. If you still want to hear music legally, I suggest you using a spotify youtube playlist downloader like and a music client for your Jolla.

Same here. Playlists are not loaded. Only top hits and search option which does not return any result.

Unfortunately does not work anymore, just search songs works. ..

Hey @lukedirtwalker,

as already mentioned in the Jolla store comments, all the playlists has vanished and the sync is not working anymore since a few days.

Is there a way to manually start the syncing?

I would really appreciate a fix for this.

smatkovi's picture

This is really the best, it even supports the headset button not only for pause and play, but with the pythonscript from jolla forums also skip and previous song

1.5.8 made cutespot very sluggish for me with high cpu usage. I had to revert back to 1.5.7-1 which is working fine. Using SailfishX Great app, though. Edit. Well, 1.5.7-1 does not work. I was sure it was working before but maybe not then.

Since my upgrade from the harbour version (1.5.7) to the openrepos version (1.5.8-0), CuteSpot isn't working any more. It seems to fail to load a Spotify-generated playlist (~ 'your mix of the week'); it shows "Loading..." for this playlist. All other playlists are shown, but faded out and non functional; most likely because this one missing playlist.

I can access the pulley menu and select search, but it does not find anything. I guess CuteSpot is still waiting for the pending playlist and cannot perform the search therefore.

Works quite well. Many thanks! Only issues I have is that I don't see all my favorite playlists names and actually don't know how to add whole new playlist to my favorite..

Sad to see the “Bluetooth control support" being dropped (I think) in this latest update as I use Sony SBH-52 handset daily to listen to spotify (on sailfishX). This had been working for me on the store version, but after I updated to 1.5.8 and then downgraded back to the store version it stopped working...for some reason.

borghal's picture

Thanks a million for the update! Works fine on SailfishX ☺

Sanpo's picture

One of the best apps for SailfishOs. Thanks! And works fine on my Sailfish X too.

Same here, no sound on Xperia 2.1.4 EA. Could you please update?

calimarno's picture

Harbour version works great, but openrepos version does not produce any sound (it seems it is happening for several people). Sailfish X on Sony Xperia X.

I'd love to get the bluetooth control working :)

matl's picture

Are there any plans for an updated version? Syncing is getting worst from time to time :(

dizzi90's picture

Add to playlist -> New Playlist would be better as the top option rather than the bottom, so you don't have to scroll past all playlists.

florifreeman's picture

Any chance of an update? mopidy runs perfect using the spotify api on my raspberry pi!

I'm on Jolla C and this version works visually but won't produce audio to headphones nor internal speaker ln Sailfish versions Jolla store version works.

miqu's picture

Same here on Jolla 1 with Music seems to play but no sound comes out.

Hi vige, please see the progress here:

vige's picture

So the current situation with Jolla 1: openrepos versio does not work (always stops at 0:01). Store version works, but does not have bluetooth controls. Is there going to be a fix for this?

kaari's picture

Don't work on EA Starts, but wont play music. Also volume rocker controls system sounds. I tried cutespotify, which showed to play songs, but without sound. Volume rocker also controls music.

lukedirtwalker's picture

Hi @kaari, Can you explain what device you are using and how you try to listen to the music (headphones, loudspeaker, bluetooth speaker) ? On my Jolla C using the in-built loudspeaker works fine.

Can you try if the version from the Jolla Store works better?



Mohjive's picture

I have the same issue, using Jolla 1 and the openrepos version. The song plays, but no output is produced. If I have a headset attached or if using bluetooth output the volume rocker only changes ringtone volume instead of media volume, even when cutespot is at the top and a track is playing. Switching to the harbour version works, but then the controls on my bluetooth headset doesn't. Switching back to the openrepos version again still produces no output.

Also see comment on t.m.o

kaari's picture

Hi, installed Jolla Store version, and it's working. Using Jolla1. Thank you so much!

tth123's picture

Same for me. Great software! Controls work with my Pebble and in my car! :)

EDIT: Correction: The controls of my car radio do not work. Pebble does. Perhaps this is related to the update of bluez in Jolla?
