Have you ever wondered how people display what they’re currently listening to on Spotify as their Discord status? Well, they have connected Spotify to their Discord.

If you are a Discord user as well as a Spotify subscriber, you can actually connect both platforms. When you do this, you essentially allow other Discord users to see what you’re listening to on Spotify when logged in.


To connect Spotify to Discord, navigate to User Settings → Connections. From here, click on the Spotify icon to open up a Spotify login page. Log in using Facebook, Apple, Google, or email/username and password. After this, you will have connected Spotify to Discord.

Step 1: Open Discord

If you haven’t done so already, go ahead and create a Discord account. After this, download the app on mobile or desktop—or both. Alternatively, you can even open Discord in your browser to do this.

Step 2: Navigate to User Settings

When you’re in Discord, open up the User Settings menu.

To do this on mobile, click on your account icon in the toolbar at the bottom of the screen. It should be the rightmost icon.

To do this in the desktop Discord app or in your browser, select the gear icon to the right of your profile picture and username. It is the third icon after the mute and deafen functions.

Step 3: Go to Connections

This last step is optional! However, if you want people on Discord to see what you are listening to on Spotify, you’re going to want to do this.

Scroll down in the Connections tab until you find your connected Spotify account. Here, there are two sliders: Display on profile and Display Spotify as your status.

No. If you grant it access, your Spotify activity will show up as your status even if you are not a Discord Nitro subscriber.

Do I need to have Spotify Premium to connect my account to Discord?
