5 Fixes: Spotify Not Showing On Discord

Who hasn’t encountered an unwelcome glitch during their digital journey? Just last week, I found myself scratching my head when Spotify decided to play hide-and-seek on my Discord. With my screen glistening in the late-night glow, I found myself plunging into the realm of bug-fixing, exploring every nook and cranny of the software. Here’s my tale of untangling this unexpected digital snarl, chronicling 12 key fixes for when Spotify decides to vanish from Discord.

1. Restarting the System

The first port of call? A good old-fashioned system restart. The idea is to wipe away any temporary issues that might be interfering with the smooth interaction between Spotify and Discord. A shutdown, followed by a startup, can do wonders. Imagine it as a much-needed breather for your device.

2. Update the Applications

Outdated versions are often the breeding ground for software issues. Make sure both your Discord and Spotify are up to date. You can check for updates on the official Spotify website and Discord website. Remember, a little refresh can breathe new life into your apps.

3. Re-link Spotify and Discord

To do this, first go to ‘User Settings’ in Discord and select ‘Connections’. Click on the ‘X’ next to Spotify to unlink it. Then, click on the plus sign or the Spotify icon to re-link it. You’ll be prompted to log in to your Spotify account to establish the connection. Think of it as a ‘friendship’ refresh between Discord and Spotify.

Remember, trial and error is a part of the troubleshooting process, and patience is your best ally. I’m confident that one of these steps will coax Spotify out of hiding on your Discord.

4. Enable Display Spotify as your Status

A common oversight is having the ‘Display Spotify as your Status’ option unchecked. Navigate to ‘Connections’ under ‘User Settings’ in Discord and make sure that this little checkbox is ticked. It’s like telling Discord to keep an eye on your musical adventures.

5. Check Discord Server Status

In Discord, click on the ‘User Settings’ icon, then ‘Connections’. Here, you’ll see a list of linked applications. Find Spotify and ensure the ‘Display on profile’ and ‘Display Spotify as your status’ options are checked. This allows Discord to publicly display your Spotify listening status.
