Spotify free tier with soundtouch

How do I use spotify free tier with soundtouch. I know the free tier is now supported but when I enter my login information through the soundtouch app it tells me the feature is only available for premium tier.

Can anyone help?

Hi,

 

Spotify Free is not available through the Soundtouch app, but only via Spotify Connect.

I don’t understand. How is this different from air playing Spotify from my phone?

The difference is subtle. 

With Connect you’ll need the Soundtouch app to enable multiroom capability, but the advantage is that you can close the Spotify app after starting the stream. The battery of your device won‘t drain. Music will be streamed not from your device but directly from Spotify to your speaker(s). With Airplay 2 it‘s the other way.
