PlayStation

With the Spotify app available on PlayStation Music, you can listen to Spotify on your PS4 or PS3 console.

Get started

  1. On your PlayStation console, go to the PlayStation Music app.
  2. Log in one of these three ways to play:
    • With Spotify Connect.
    • With your Spotify email address and password.
      Note: If you usually log in with Facebook, use Spotify Connect to log in instead.
    • Select LOG IN WITH PIN. Then, on your phone or computer, go to www.spotify.com/pair and enter the pin you see on your screen.
  3. You can LINK ACCOUNTS to automatically log into Spotify whenever you log into your PlayStation Network account.
    Note: You can also link your accounts here.

Tip: Don’t have a Spotify account? Just open the app on your console and select SIGN UP.

Yep! There are two ways to do this:

  • Log into your own PlayStation Network account on their PS4 or PS3 console. If you’ve already linked that account to your Spotify profile, you’ll have instant access on any other PS4 or PS3 console you sign into.
  • Use Spotify Connect to log in and play Spotify on PlayStation Music on your friend's PlayStation Network account.

Note: If you log into your Spotify account on your friend’s PlayStation Network account, make sure to log out afterwards.

You can unlink your PlayStation Network account from Spotify by reaching out to Sony customer support and letting them know your username. 

Start playing

Use your console controller to navigate the app, or use your phone to control the music remotely with Spotify Connect.

Listen while you game

For: Select PS4 games (not available on PlayStation Now or when using Remote Play).

When you play Spotify on your PS4, it continues playing when you go to your game. If the game allows, you can disable in-game music for the best Spotify experience.

To control the music while you game:

  1. Press and hold the PS button on your controller to bring up the quick menu.
  2. Select Spotify.
    Note: To display your Spotify music in the quick menu, you must allow access by PlayStation Network. You’ll be prompted to do so when you first select Spotify in the quick menu.
  3. Here you can skip songs, play/pause, or adjust the volume.

Or, use Spotify Connect to use your phone to control the music remotely.

Tip: You can also share music while you game! Just select Share Music Information from the quick menu and choose from Now Playing, Recently Played, and Recently Saved.

PlayStation Store billing

From March 31st, the PlayStation Store no longer hosts Spotify Premium payments.

What happens to my subscription through the PlayStation Store?

Your Spotify account will automatically change to the free, ad-supported service on your first payment date due after March 31st. To find out when this is, log in to store.playstation.com and head to Subscriptions management.

Once your account has switched to free, subscribe to Premium again at www.spotify.com/premium to continue enjoying Premium features with Spotify on PlayStation Music.
