How do I find devices on Spotify?

Answered by Willie Powers

To find devices on Spotify, you’ll need to follow these steps:

1. Launch the Spotify app on your iPhone, Android device, tablet, Mac, or PC. Make sure you have the latest version of the app.

2. Select a song or podcast from your library or search for one using the search bar. Once you’ve found a song or podcast you want to play, tap on it to start playing.

3. At the bottom of your screen, you’ll see a “Now Playing” bar that shows the currently playing song or podcast. Tap on this bar to expand it.

4. Once expanded, you’ll see the album art, playback controls, and additional options. Look for the “Devices Available” menu, which is usually represented by a speaker icon or a casting icon.

5. Tap on the “Devices Available” menu to view a list of available devices you can connect to. This list will include speakers, TVs, computers, and other devices that support Spotify Connect.

6. Scroll through the list to find the specific device you wish to connect to. The list will show the name of the device, along with any additional information such as its location or type.

7. Once you’ve found the device you want to connect to, tap on it to select it. Spotify will then start streaming the music or podcast to that device.

8. Depending on the device you’re connecting to, you may need to follow additional instructions or confirm the connection on the device itself. For example, if you’re connecting to a Bluetooth speaker, you may need to pair your phone or computer with the speaker first.

9. Once the connection is established, you can control the playback of the music or podcast from the Spotify app on your device. You can pause, play, skip tracks, adjust the volume, and more.

10. If you want to switch devices or disconnect from a device, simply repeat the steps above and select a different device or tap on the “Disconnect” option.

Remember that the availability of devices may vary depending on your location and the devices you have connected to your Spotify account. Some devices may require additional setup or have specific requirements for connecting to Spotify. Make sure you check the user manual or support documentation for your specific device if you encounter any issues.

Additionally, it’s worth noting that Spotify Connect allows you to seamlessly switch between devices while listening to music or podcasts. For example, you can start playing music on your phone and then switch to a speaker or TV without interrupting the playback. This can be useful if you want to listen to music in different rooms or share your music with others.
