Right now there are working music addons for Spotify, Google Music and Amazon Prime (German only right now). In contrast to the video library it is not possible to add tracks or albums from these online sources to kodi's music library. Such a feature to have a unified music library within kodi for various on- and offline sources would be fantastic.

I'm aware it needs some bigger tweaks, because tags are naturally not available. However the addons and/or the streams seem to provide some basic information (artist, year, album) that kodi might be able to read and integrate into the library and ideally even use for scraping more information.

Is this on a roadmap for a future kodi version? Music in general seems to be going away from local files to streaming from online servers. Kids in my family will likely never use local files anymore. And for myself I have to say that I'm beginning to understand why these services are so popular. In Kodi I now have four separate databases. Local, Spotify, Google and Amazon. A unified database would be amazing and i believe a unique thing among media players.
