Nike+ Run Club app integrates with Spotify but when I open the music portion of the app it says it should populate with the default music app on my phone. There is no way to set Spotify (or any other app) as a default music app. How can I integrate my Spotify premium with Nike+ Run Club so I can listen to Spotify playlists while I run?

It's a good news that Nike Run Club has integrated with one of the most popular music apps Spotify and you can play your favorite tunes while you're running. But the integration looks premature since many users can connect Nike Run Club to Spotify.

So in the following parts, we're going to troubleshoot Nike Run Club and Spotify not working issue and help you to play Spotify while you're running without any disturbance.

Part 1. Fixes to Nike Run Club Spotify Not Working Issue
Part 2. Connect Nike Run Club to Spotify Offline

If you don't know how to play Spotify songs on Nike Run Club yet, here's the tutorial.

1. Open Nike Run Club on your phone and go to the main run screen.

2. Tap the music icon and select Spotify Premium. Then you can access Spotify's extensive music library with your liked songs and playlists.

Nike Run Club Spotify Can't Connect

If you can't connect Nike Run Club to Spotify, you can only see the Spotify Premium option keeps spinning saying Not Connected. And here's the fix:

1. Go to and into apps. Remove Nike from access.

2. Go into Nike+ app/settings/partner and disconnect Spotify

3. Sign out of NRC and Spotify apps.

4. Remove both from iPhone.

5. Do a soft reset of iPhone.

6. Reinstall both apps.

7. Try to reconnect Spotify to NRC.

Spotify is Not the Default Player

And there's another issue that some users can't set the Spotify app as the default music player on their phones. Here's how to set Spotify as the default player on your phone:

1. Go to Settings on your phone > Apps & Notifications > Default App > Music.

2. Set Spotify as the default music app.

There also are users reporting that the Nike Run Club only shows offline content that is in your music folder on the phone rather than music on the default music app. So basically you'll have to download Spotify songs in advance. Then you'll need to put the music in the music folder so that they can show up on the Nike Run Club app.

Connect Nike Run Club to Spotify Offline

Since the Nike Run Club and Spotify integration only works on iOS system and it still needs to be improved. The best way currently to stream Spotify songs on Nike Run Club is to download Spotify songs offline and put them in the Music folder on your phone.
