Welcome to this tutorial on how to share a Spotify playlist on a Discord server! Discord is a popular communication platform for gamers and communities to connect, chat, and share content.
If you want to showcase your favorite tunes or create a collaborative playlist with your friends on Discord, it’s actually quite easy. Let’s dive in!
Step 1: Copy the Spotify Playlist URL
The first step is to locate the Spotify playlist you want to share. Open up the Spotify app or web player and find the playlist you want to showcase.
Once you’ve found it, right-click on the playlist name and select “Copy Playlist Link” or “Copy Playlist URL”. This will copy the unique URL of your playlist.
Step 2: Open Discord and Select Server
Next, open up the Discord application or website, and choose the server where you want to share your Spotify playlist. Make sure you have the necessary permissions in that server (such as being an admin or having permission to send messages).
Step 3: Paste Playlist URL
In Discord, navigate to the text channel where you want to share your Spotify playlist. In the text input field, right-click and select “Paste” or use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+V (or Command+V on Mac) to paste the copied Spotify playlist URL.
If you only paste the plain text URL, it won’t be visually appealing like sharing a YouTube video link. However, there’s a neat trick we can utilize next!
Step 4: Embedding with Groovy Bot (Optional)
If you want your Spotify playlist link to be more visually engaging with album art and song details displayed directly in Discord, we can make use of a bot called Groovy.
To start, make sure you have the necessary permissions to add bots to your Discord server. If you do, visit the Groovy website and click on the “Add to Discord” button. Follow the prompts to authorize Groovy and add it to your server.
Once Groovy is added, go back to your desired text channel in Discord and type “-play” followed by a space. Then paste your Spotify playlist URL after the space and hit Enter. Groovy will automatically fetch the playlist details and display them as an embedded message in Discord.
Groovy is just one example of a bot that can help enhance the appearance of your Spotify playlist link in Discord. Feel free to explore other music bots available based on your preferences.
Step 5: Enjoy Your Shared Spotify Playlist!
That’s it! You have successfully shared your Spotify playlist on a Discord server. Now, anyone who clicks on the link or views the embedded message can access and enjoy your carefully curated tunes.
- TIP: Remember that when sharing a public playlist, other users won’t be able to edit or modify it unless you give them explicit permissions.
- TIP: If you make changes or update songs in your Spotify playlist, those changes will automatically reflect on Discord as well (if using Groovy bot or any other similar bot).
I hope this tutorial has helped you learn how to share a Spotify playlist on a Discord server. Now go ahead and share some fantastic music with your friends! Happy listening!
