Can you get Spotify on school Chromebook?
As I mentioned in my other post, I am not really that good at tech things like coding and such.
But as a musician/entertainer, I really want to get into the world of streaming music and such. Is there a way to do this on a school Chromebook?
Currently I have just my school laptop, which is pretty bad for what I want. But I am open to ideas.
I was considering getting a cheap android tablet, but I am not sure if there are any good music apps for it? Thanks! (sorry, I am a little new to this). I'd like to take a wild guess and say that you're probably looking for an app or service that will allow you to stream music from a desktop computer to your laptop? Most of the "cool" streaming services require the user to be logged in to the service on the computer they're streaming from. So you would need to use a separate computer to listen to music while you are logged in to the streaming service.
This is only a few months old (it was released in October), but I've been very happy with it so far. I don't think it's free. I can get on YouTube with it though. I think it's by the same company that runs the Windows 10 app. You can use it to make your own YouTube videos. I have no idea if that's worth anything or not.
I'm sure someone here will know how to stream to school Chromebook, but for general info: It is possible to stream music through Chrome. When I was trying to stream music, I couldn't get it to work through Chrome.
You need to go to the music-sharing website you want to stream from, and then click the "send to" button at the top left. It'll ask for your Spotify password, and after that it'll show up in your Chrome music section.
If you already have a Spotify account, you can just type "spotify://" into the URL bar of your browser and it should load directly. I'm currently trying to figure out what it is about my school's network that is blocking Google Chrome streaming. My sister has a Chromebook (which I have a lot of trouble getting to work, btw) and she has been able to stream music through Google Chrome without problems.
How do you listen to Spotify if it's blocked?
This might actually be the perfect time to ditch your subscription and get into the glorious world of piracy.
Streaming services are great - you just need an internet connection, so you can listen as soon as you're connected. But streaming is all too often blocked by country-wide parental controls (like in the US) or by schools which block certain content. So how do you listen?
Well, like all good pirates, you'll always listen in the background until you have to go somewhere important, then you hop on a friend's WiFi and listen in full. It's a bit messy, but hey, it's more than most people can say! The following are some of the best open-source applications for listening to Spotify, but there's lots more. I would expect that we have all heard about Shoutcast before - it is the most used open source way of streaming and I can see why. However, it uses flash in the browser - not everyone has flash installed, not everyone has access to the web, or perhaps they don't want to make their system less secure by installing something from the internet.
If none of these work, give OpenPandora a try. It has a much more robust web interface, and allows you to play on multiple devices - you may have noticed you can open Pandora from your phone, but not from your computer (unless you have another Android device, or maybe Chrome). OpenPandora will run in your browser, and connect to the Pandora servers. It runs for Firefox and Safari, Chrome, Opera, and other browsers, but does not require Flash, unlike the other options. It is also free, and the only paid feature is the premium "access" option, which gives you unlimited streaming.99 per month or so. Of course, many more software based streaming solutions are available, but don't feel like playing the field - go with what works.
I'm sorry, but I am using spotify. But I'd love to help others get into it if I could. :/
How do I get around my school's blocking of it? Are the kids really not going to be able to listen in school, though? Or can they?

How do I get Spotify unblocked at school?
So, I went to the school library and got a Spotify account but when I went to play some songs my school blocked it.
I have been having a rough day because I can't listen to music. I really need it to cheer me up. I tried the online method and it didn't work. I tried getting someone else's Spotify password but it said they didn't have a password. So, how can I get Spotify unblocked at school?
I did what you said. And I went to my profile, clicked the "unlock" button and then it said something about my computer. Is that a problem? And what do I do now? Please help me.
The reason Spotify was blocked in the first place is likely due to your school's IT department having it set up so that Spotify cannot be used on computers. It may have been a technical reason and not necessarily one that you will have any control over.
In any case, your school's IT department may not allow you to access the Spotify app, or it may block the Spotify website. In either case, you will have to find a different way to listen to your music.
If you were able to get a password for the Spotify account, you could use that password to download Spotify onto your device. If you don't have a way to access Spotify on your phone or tablet, you could try using Google Play Music instead. You can download an Android app from the Google Play Store (here) and an iPhone app (here).
It is also possible that your school's IT department has set up their firewall to block all outbound traffic on port 80 (the port Spotify uses to communicate with its servers). If that's the case, you should contact your school's IT department to find out how to get around that.
There's a lot of reasons that Spotify can get blocked. One of the main ones is that schools are trying to keep kids off of their network and away from other sites and programs that may not be allowed.
But I am 17 and my parents have never told me not to use it and I still use it. So then your parents don't care what you do. That means they probably have no idea you're on here.
They might not care, but there's a good chance your school's IT department does.
