How to Connect Spotify with PS5

Spotify is now available on PS5 and works nicely with the current version of the console. To begin listening, simply download the app and log in with your Spotify credentials.

Before we get started, keep in mind that the PS5 only supports Spotify in a few countries. Before you begin the setup procedure, make sure you look over the list.

1: Download Spotify

Let’s begin by installing the app on your PS5, turning it on, and logging into your PlayStation account. Select Spotify from the list of alternatives by scrolling to the Apps button under Media. To begin downloading, press the X button on the Controller. Open the app after the download is complete.

2: Log into Your Spotify on PS5

Now, use the controller to connect to your Spotify account by hitting the login button. If you have a smartphone with Spotify installed, the good news is that it makes logging in quite simple. You may log in with your email address and password the old-fashioned way. I prefer the smartphone method.

That is all there is to it. Spotify would log in with your PlayStation 5 credentials and begin playing songs. Spotify playlists, favorite songs, and any other song available on the site are now accessible on PS5. The app’s design is identical to that of Android TV, and you can access your playlists through it.

Simply press the PS button once to bring up the Quick Menu and play your favorite Spotify playlists while playing PS5 games.

Unlike the PlayStation 4, hitting the PS button once no longer takes you to the Home Screen. To go to the Home Screen, press and hold the PS button.

To access the Spotify menu, use the D-Pad to navigate to the Music button on the bottom row of items and tap it. Find your favorite playlist on Spotify and start listening to it on your PS5. By hitting the PS button again, you may return to your game and the music will continue to play as you play. Enjoy!
