Spotube: An open source, cross-platform Spotify client that eliminates the need for Spotify Premium

Spotube is an open source, cross-platform Spotify client compatible across multiple platforms ( all excluding iOS ). It utilizes Spotify’s data API and YouTube, or JioSaavn as an audio source, eliminating the need for Spotify Premium
