Play Spotify on Discord

The connect feature between Spotify and Discord is quite limited. All it can do is show the current song playing in Spotify on your Discord profile. To activate, you can simply open Discord Settings > Connections > Spotify and log-in with your Spotify account to connect.

Keeping that aside, if you want to play your Spotify songs and playlists to listen with your Discord community, then you can consider this alternative method.

Here’s how you can play Spotify Songs on Discord.

Playing Spotify Songs on Discord

Discord doesn’t offer all the features every community needs. That’s where bots come in. These bots add different functionalities to the server making each community different.

Now all you need is a Botify bot. Here’s how you can add the Botify bot and set it up to play songs from Spotify on Discord.

Adding Botify bot to your Discord Server

First, open the top.gg Discord bot store, search for Botify, and click on the “View” option to open it. Alternatively, you can go to Botify page directly.

Searching Botify on Top.gg

In the right sidebar, click on “Invite” button to add Botify to your server.

Inviting Botify to Discord

Log-in to the Discord account if not already.

Logging into Discord

Select the server that you want to add the bot to. If you cannot see the server you need, you most probably don’t have the permission to add bots to that server. You can contact someone in a higher role to add Botify for you.

Adding bot to Discord Server

Grant all the permissions to the bot and click on “Authorize”.

Wrapping Up: Play Spotify on Discord With Botify

If not for Spotify, you can also try out other music bots like Rythm and Groovy, which have way easier commands and also a lot of additional features like lyrics. But the best service you get which supports Spotify is Botify that has better integration with Spotify than any other music bots.
