Apple TV Spotify

Nowadays, people don’t just listen to music on their tablet or laptop. The variant via the TV or Playstation 4 is becoming increasingly popular. But using Spotify on the Apple TV was not possible for a long time. In this article we show you some helpful tips and tricks how you can use the Spotify app on the Apple TV. Enjoying music has never been so easy.

How can I listen to Spotify on the Apple TV?

Unfortunately, it is not possible to listen to Spotify directly via any Apple TV. On many devices, this only works with AirPlay – especially up to the third generation. This requires another Apple device (e.g. iPhone, iPad or iPod). Here’s how to connect your devices with AirPlay:

  1. Your iPhone or iPad and the Apple TV must be on the same Wi-Fi network.
  2. Go to your Spotify app on your iPhone or iPad and select or launch a song.
  3. Next to the “Current Song” field, press the down arrow.
  4. There you will get to the “Available devices” section. Then you have to select your Apple TV to start the stream via “AirPlay”.

However, you can still connect your devices using another option. Google Chromecast works on Apple and Android devices and is basically very similar to AirPlay. You don’t have to have an iPhone to listen to Spotify on the Apple TV with this option.
