Connect your Spotify account to Discord, and share favorite jams with all your gamer friends.
Heads up, Discord users: The gaming app now plays nice with Spotify.
Connect your Spotify account to Discord, and share your favorite jams with all your gamer friends. After you connect your account, friends will be able to see what you’re listening to and play those tracks. Plus, if you’re a Spotify Premium subscriber, you’ll be able to “seamlessly listen along with your friends simultaneously whilst you chat and strategize about future campaigns and endeavors,” Spotify wrote in its announcement.
For more on the integration, check out the video below.
To connect your Spotify account to Discord, head to User Settings, click Connections, and tap on the Spotify logo. Then, confirm that you want to connect your Spotify account, and voila — you’re all set. You’ll then see Spotify in your list of connected accounts, and you can choose to toggle your Spotify name on your profile and display Spotify as your status.
When you get the urge to show off your sweet deejay skills, start playing something on Spotify and click the + in your text box to invite friends to listen with you. You’ll see a preview of your invite, and can add a comment, if you want. Friends can then press “Join” to start jamming to your picks.
“This is the next natural step to highlight the importance of music as an integral part of the gaming experience,” Mikael Ericsson, Spotify Platform and Partner Experience Product Director, said in a statement. “Starting today, we’re really excited to offer Spotify Premium and Discord users the ability to listen together as a group or highlight what they’re jamming out to while enjoying their favorite games.”
