@Danielcirillo: Spotify I never tried with volumio but did you changed the default Alsa mixer device?

But there also good news:
yesterday I started a PR for changes in Volumio UI to integrate the needed features for pairing devices in the web interface.
When this is integrated I'll release an improved version of the plugin to the official repository to ease installation.

its my first post, but I am using volumio more than one year and its great - thank you
Like all the posting user here I find that bluetooth is a very important and usefull feature for volumio - both to send all music to all blutooth-devices and to receive it from all devices.
I use an RP3 with allo-boss and actual Volumioversion 2.502. I installed the plugin, it compiled and installed succesfull but the service didn't start - the same issue as sonos-killer and others. Deinstall didn't work, also I tried the script of fosphatic duke - it works and I can use bluetoothctl. I just didn't try to pair yet - its very "manual" but I will give him a chance.
My question - the plugin seems to be the best option, but does it work with an actual Version of volumio? Sonos-killer did a clean install, but get the same issue. Is there a chance for my hardware?
