Spotify is an amazing platform for music and once connected to discord you can show other users what you are listening to.

In this article, I will share how to show Spotify status on Discord PC and Mobile.


How do I Show Spotify Status on Discord?

If you are a regular user of Spotify then you probably want to show your Spotify status on discord as well.

Why isn’t my Spotify showing on Discord Mobile?

Though it’s very easy to connect Spotify to discord and show the playing status on PC by simply enabling the display status on discord.

But on an Android phone, while playing songs on the Spotify app, discord doesn’t detect Spotify. Here we need to enable device broadcast status on Spotify to show the status on discord mobile.

Unfortunately, this feature is currently not available for iOS and probably Spotify will launch very soon.


How to Fix Spotify not showing on Discord (Mobile) 

I am sharing two major fixes for android which will surely resolve the problem of Discord where Spotify is not detected.

You can also try playing Spotify songs on the browser instead of App. Use Discord web as well.

NOTE:- Make sure Display Spotify as your Status option is enabled in the Discord Connections.


FIX 1: – Enable “Device Broadcast Status” on Spotify App                                      

There are additional settings of “device broadcast status” on the Spotify app that should be enabled to show the playing status on discord mobile.

To enable, open the Spotify app on your phone. Now tap on the settings gear icon located at the very right-hand top of the app.
