1. Connecting Spotify in Desktop (Mac and PC)

In order to connect Spotify to Discord on a Mac or PC, you need to follow a couple of quick steps.

You will be able to listen to a song, share a playlist, and enjoy a good time once you connect Discord to your Spotify account.

Step 1: Go to “User Settings” and Click Connections

The procedure is basically the same both on Mac and PC.

You need to click the User Settings icon and then connect Spotify to Discord using your credentials:

Just remember to look out for the small gear-shaped icon at the bottom of the Discord app.
