The Android App itself also has been updated in order to support this new feature.

Compatible Onkyo products are as follows:
Receivers: TX-NR609/709/809/1009/3009/5009 and HT-RC360/370
Home Theater Systems: HT-S7400/7409/8400/8409 and 9400THX

Additionally, towards the end of November 2011 Onkyo will also extend direct support for Spotify Premium via Onkyo's Remote App for Android to the TX-NR509 network A/V receiver as well as the TX-8050 network stereo receiver. At this time Onkyo will also issue a firmware upgrade that allows owners of all its network products with Spotify support to access the service using Facebook account details.

All you need to enjoy Spotify on Onkyo is an internet connection and a Spotify Premium account. The music service offers subscribers instant access to millions of songs.
