If you've ever wondered how some users display their Spotify status on Discord, you're in luck. It's actually a built-in feature that allows you to connect your Spotify account to Discord. Once connected, any song you play on Spotify will automatically be shown on your Discord status. Not only that, but your friends on Discord can join you and listen to the same song. Here's how you can connect Spotify and Discord and display your Spotify songs as your Discord status.

  2. In the Settings menu, select the Connections option in the left sidebar.

  3. On the Connections page, click on the Spotify icon in the carousel under the “Add accounts to your profile” section.

  4. A pop-up window will appear asking you to log in to your Discord account. Enter your credentials or sign in using Google, Facebook, or Apple. If you're already logged in to Spotify on your default browser, you can skip this step.

  5. On the next page, Spotify will ask for your permission to access certain information in order for the features to work. Scroll down and click on the Agree button.

  6. Back on the Connections page, make sure the toggle next to “Display Spotify as your Status” is enabled. This will display the currently playing song on your Discord status.

Premium users can also use the “Listen Along” feature to listen to the song together with you. Additionally, if you've enabled the “Display on profile” option, your Spotify account link will be added to your Discord profile.

So, if you're a music lover and part of music communities on Discord, make sure to enable the Spotify connection for your friends to check out. And remember, Discord offers connections with other services like Twitter, YouTube, Twitch, and even game consoles like PlayStation and Xbox, allowing you to chat while gaming.
