Playing a Spotify playlist on Discord is a fantastic way to share your favorite music with friends and fellow gamers. As an avid music lover and Discord user myself, I’ve found this feature to be a game-changer for creating the perfect atmosphere during gaming sessions or simply hanging out with friends online. In this article, I’ll guide you through the process of playing Spotify playlists on Discord, step by step.
Step 1: Connecting Spotify to Discord
The first thing you need to do is connect your Spotify account to Discord. To do this, open your Discord desktop app and click on the gear icon located at the bottom-left corner of the screen to access User Settings.
From there, navigate to the “Connections” tab on the left-hand side. Scroll down until you find the Spotify logo, then click on the “Connect” button.
A new window will open asking for your Spotify credentials. Enter your username and password, then click on “Log In” to authorize the connection between Discord and Spotify.
Step 2: Creating a Spotify Playlist
Now that your Spotify account is linked to Discord, it’s time to create a playlist. Open the Spotify app on your computer or mobile device, and click on the “Create a Playlist” button located on the left-hand side of the screen.
Give your playlist a catchy name and add songs to it by searching for them in the Spotify library. You can also add songs from your own saved tracks or other playlists. Don’t forget to customize the cover image to make it visually appealing!
Once you’re done adding songs, right-click on your playlist and select “Copy Spotify URI” from the menu. Keep this URI handy for the next step.
Step 3: Adding the Spotify Playlist to Discord
Go back to your Discord app and click on the “+” button located on the left-hand side of the chatbox, next to the voice channels list. This will open a pop-up window with several options. Choose “Create a Voice Channel” from the list.
Give your voice channel a name, such as “Music Room” or “Jam Session,” and click on the “Create Channel” button. You’ll be redirected to the newly created voice channel.
In the voice channel, click on the small down arrow next to its name and select “Edit Channel” from the menu. In the “User Limit” section, select “No Limit” to allow unlimited members to join.
Scroll down until you find the “Permissions” section. Click on the “+” button to add a role or user to the channel. Select the role or user you want to give access to your Spotify playlist. This will allow them to listen to the playlist in the voice channel.
Finally, paste the Spotify URI you copied earlier into the channel’s description. To do this, click on the “Channel Info” tab at the top of the window, then paste the URI in the “Description” field. Be sure to save your changes.
Step 4: Enjoying Your Spotify Playlist on Discord
Now that everything is set up, it’s time to enjoy your Spotify playlist on Discord. Simply open the voice channel where you added the playlist, and start playing songs on your Spotify app.
You and other members with access to the voice channel will be able to listen to the playlist in real-time, creating a shared music experience. You can chat, game, or simply vibe to the tunes together!
