The host is the user who initialized the event and is plugged into the aux. Their Spotify account is where the playback happens.
A guest is any user who uses an event code to join the event and make and upvote song requests.
With Cue, everyone gets a say in which songs are played when! Songs with more upvotes are moved up in the queue and therefore play sooner. Cue also allows users to see and save tracks that were played at the event they attended, as well as view which guests were in attendance.
Yes, you need to log in using a Spotify account in order to access all the tracks Spotify has to offer.
In order to control playback (without shuffling), the host must have Spotify Premium. However, guests do not need a premium account to use Cue.
Cue is still in Beta, but if you encounter a bug, it most likely can be fixed by closing out of the app, stopping it from running in the background, and re-opening it. If this does not fix your issue, please submit a bug report. We appreciate your patience as we iron out these last little bugs!
Cue relies on the host’s phone to monitor which tracks are currently playing, so if the host closed out of their app for an extended period of time during the event, it may miss some songs that were played. In order to prevent this, keep the host’s app open at all times.
Cue does not have access to local MP3s and tracks that you have added to Spotify Desktop, so they are not included in the queue.
