Can you help me understand what this is? e.g. how does one make this work and what devices does it work for?

for the android phone, running arch on android then installing spotify and something like spotify-cli-linux may work.

Edit: I vaguely recall there being apps on f-droid to run arch without needing root, not something i've done though.

I know that using chroot you can install a linux distro alongside android and then ssh or VNC into it from native android apps, but I'm not sure about how to do it without a rooted android host.

If you want to skip the "alongside" part then check out postmarketOS. It's based on Alpine, which is a fabulous distro.

A bit of a warning, most linux phone os are not ready for daily use. So if you need your phone to make calls and text, it might not be for you. If you want to test it live, it's better to use a secondary phone.

It's just Alpine Linux where you can use either Phosh, Plasma Mobile or Sxmo for interface. So you could just install Alpine in a VM, I think?
