Part 1. What Streaming Service Options are Available in djay Pro

Unfortunately, the two giant music streaming platforms – Spotify and Apple Music, are not integrated with djay Pro, so you are not able to directly play songs from Apple Music on djay Pro. But there still exists the opportunity for you to access streaming music as djay provides seamless with other streaming services.

Currently, those partnering streaming services include TIDAL, SoundCloud, Beatport, and Beatsource. This means that you can mix more than 200 million tracks from SoundCloud, enjoy TIDAL's extensive range of high-quality music and videos, and stream millions of electronic and open format tracks from Beatport and Beatsource within djay.

Part 2. Best Method to Mix with Spotify on djay Pro

Once with a Premium account, you have access to millions of tracks, directly within djay Pro. To get started, simply select Spotify from the music sourcecs panel on the left the library. Then you can access everything in your library after logging into your Spotify account. However, you cannot unlock this service even with a Premium account as Spotify is not integrated with djay Pro.

Even though djay Pro doesn't give you access to all your music from Spotify, there is still a chance available for you to unlock this streaming service by using a Spotify music downloader. As we all know, the downloaded files from Spotify are DRM-protected, so you are not able to use Spotify music with other platforms or devices without the authorization of Spotify.

Hence, if you use a Spotify music downloader, you can extract music from Spotify and save music to some playable formats. Djay Pro supports a variety of audio file formats, including MP3, AAC, FLAC, and others. Here we do recommend ViWizard Music Converter for Spotify to you, an excellent music converter and downloader for all Spotify users.

Bottomline

Mix recording will not work when you use tracks from Spotify directly, due to licensing agreements. This is because that recording a mix disables the Spotify tab and using Spotify disables the mix recorder. However, ViWizard can help you save Spotify music for mixing on djay Pro directly. Now, though, that's no longer the case.

What's more, keep Spotify music forever for mixing again and again even though you stop the Spotify service. You could also transfer Spotify music from your computer to your mobile device. After transferring, you can automatically play it with djay for Android or iOS. So, if you are looking to play songs from Spotify within djay Pro, just have a try and you'll find it out.
