Many users ask questions about discord does not show Spotify status. But doesn’t think what’s the reason behind it. It often happens with no specific reason behind when using the discord app.
The Discord app does not work properly with the Spotify app. If I’m not mistaken, you probably are also experiencing this same condition. Since there is no fundamental reason for why this comes to pass, I have found some workaround that works.
Take a look at the following ways; either of them will surely fix it. Also, take a look at discord vs. google hangouts
Fix.1 Reinstall your discord app and Spotify app. It works often.
Fix.2 Double-check if you have actually connected the Spotify to the discord app, or are they unlinked? Go to the discord settings>Connection, is it linked, it should be there or click to add it again.
Fix.3 Assuming both the apps are linked, but the discord app yet does not show status, then higher chances are there you have not to check marked the app. To do this, head back to the connection page, check-marked show Spotify status from there.
Fix.4 If you didn’t find a way yet, next to open the settings>Game activity at there, you would see a list of apps you’ve added earlier. Similarly, if you’ve added the app, then it should appear. We are assuming it is not working. Therefore you’ve to remove it and add it back. And always set enable Display currently running game as a status.
After following the fixes, both the app’s Discord & Spotify should work properly. However, if you’re looking for an image guide, we have managed that too.
