How to install Spotify on Ubuntu 16.04

Today we are looking at how to install Spotify on Ubuntu 16.04, this will also work on Ubuntu 18.04 and higher.  I am going to look at 3 different installation options for Spotify on Ubuntu.

When I made this video, about 2 years ago, this was the only method I found, now you should be able to find it in your system's software center as well and you can also install it as a Snap package.

The first method is very simple, just go to your software center and install it.  However, if it is not in your software center, I will recommend that you use the method as seen in the video, and the commands are below and if you prefer Snap packages and you run Ubuntu 18.04 or higher than it is a great option.

Commands Used:
As seen in the video:
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp:// --recv-keys 931FF8E79F0876134EDDBDCCA87FF9DF48BF1C90

echo deb stable non-free | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/spotify.list

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install spotify-client

Commands are based on this:

As a Snap:
sudo snap install spotify
