How to scrobble to Last.fm with Spotify Connect

It’s pretty much impossible to scrobble songs you listen to via Spotify Connect via the standard spotify apps. However, recently Spotify released an updated API that allows the retrieval of the currently playing track. Some kind soul has therefore made the Spotify Scrobbler‘ Listenz (they had to change the name to avoid the spotify trademark, apparently.)

Spotify Scrobbler - Scrobbling for Spotify Connect

This means you can now track your plays from the PS4, and other devices that utilise Spotify Connect such as the Bose Soundtouch speaker range. Fantastic! It also means you can disable the unreliable scrobbling from each Spotify app you use as they break at least once a week for seemingly no reason. Super fantastic.
