A location represents a physical place such as a restaurant or a store where you want to play music. You decide what music to play in your location by assigning a schedule or soundtrack to it.

Add locations and zones


Simply search for the location or zone you’re looking for or filter your search by region or status.

Add a location

Add a new location by clicking on "Add location." Enter its name and address. You need to connect a player and activate the subscription to start playing music.

Add a zone

If you want to play different music in different areas of your location, you can. It’s a great option if you, for example, have a restaurant and want to play smooth jazz in the dining section, but more upbeat music in the bar. Just click on the menu button next to your location and select "Add zone." 

You can view more information on each zone by clicking on its name.


Click on a zone to see what song is currently playing or to change the music by clicking on "Change music."

Zone settings

This is where your general zone settings are. 

You can change the name, see what player the zone is connected to, how much space Spotify Business takes up on your device and when it was last updated with new songs. 

Change playback settings such as sound settings, music quality, and crossfade. Volume equalization, which is a feature that sets the same volume on all songs, is on per default, but you can choose to turn if off if you want to. This is also where you manage your subscription.

Zone status

There are three different statuses to make it easier for you to control and manage your zones.

  • Green - OK! Everything is running smoothly.
  • Grey - not setup or inactive. This status means that you either haven’t setup your zone, or that it’s inactive. Follow the instructions in the status message if you want to setup the zone.
  • Red - error. There are different reasons as to why there is a zone error.
