How to Play and Share Spotify Music on Discord

Posted by Adam Gorden on Jun 12, 2019 3:35 PM.


Discord is a proprietary freeware VoIP application and digital distribution platform — designed initially for the video gaming community — that specializes in text, image, video and audio communication between users in a chat channel. And last year, Discord announced to join force with Spotify – a wonderful digital music streaming service that provides access to millions of songs from various global artists.

As part of the new partnership, Discord users can link up with their Spotify Premium accounts so their entire channels can bump to the same music during a raid. And I'd think it necessary for us to talk about how to listen to Spotify music on Discord and invite your game friends to listen along with you.

Part Two Own Your Personal Music Library Using Spotify

Spotify is a great digital music streaming service that provides access to millions of songs from various global artists. You can find your favorite music on Spotify and then establish your own playlists for listening. When there is no internet connection, it is necessary to download music to your device for listening offline. Here are two methods to tell you how to download music from Spotify for listening anywhere, even offline.

Method One Download Music from Spotify with Premium Subscription

Provided you have a Spotify Premium account, you are allowed to download songs from Spotify for listening offline. Before preparing to download Spotify music to your devices, you need to connect your device with Wi-Fi instead of cellular data. You can follow the next three steps to download music from Spotify for listening as a Spotify Premium user.

Step 1. Open Spotify and enter your Spotify account and password to log in.

Step 2. Tap "Your Library" and click on "Playlists" or "Albums" to select a playlist or an album.

Step 3. Tap the grey "Download" switch and then listen to the downloaded songs anywhere, even offline.

Though you can technically listen offline indefinitely, you will need to connect to the internet at least once every 30 days for Spotify to refresh its libraries and update. If you don't, you can lose your account information, so be sure to connect periodically.

Tips: Spotify allows premium users to download up to 3,333 songs on up to three total platforms, meaning that you can download a total of 9,999 songs across a computer, a tablet, and a smartphone.
