Can I Play Spotify on Twitch?

The answer is yes, but not all. According to the community guidelines on Twitch, there're three types of music you can use on your stream:

1. Music Owned by You – Original music which was written by you and either recorded or performed live by you, and for which you own or control all rights necessary to share the music on Twitch, including the rights to the recording, performance, and to the underlying music and lyrics. Please remember that if you have a contractual relationship with an organization that controls rights to the content you create, such as a record label or publishing company, you should make sure that you are not in violation of that relationship by sharing that music on Twitch.

2. Music Licensed To You – Copyrighted music owned in whole or part by someone other than you, if you have secured a license to share it on Twitch from the relevant copyright holders.

3. Twitch Sings Performance – A vocal performance of a song as captured in Twitch Sings gameplay, provided it is created in accordance with Twitch's Terms of Service.

In a nutshell, you can only play songs that you own or don't have copyright protection. You can play songs from Spotify, but only those songs that you own or aren't copyrighted. And these are the types of music content you should avoid in your streams: radio-style music listening show, DJ set, karaoke performance, lip synch performance, visual music depiction, cover song performance.

What'll happen if I play copyrighted songs on Spotify in my Twitch stream?

If you violate the Twitch guidelines, your stream may get muted and all the content that contains copyrighted music will be taken down.

How to Add Spotify to Twitch Stream

If you already are a Twitch streamer, you might be familiar with software like OBS, Streamlabs OBS, XSplit and Wire cast. You'll need to set up on these apps before you start streaming on Twitch. Once you start the streaming with the audio set up, you can directly play Spotify songs on your computer and the sound will be captured by the streaming app and played on Twitch. Here's the guide on how you can set up Streamlabs OBS and play Spotify songs on Streamlabs OBS:
