Here’s the crux of the article in video form:

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on August 19, 2022) follows:

Spotify is one of the most used music streaming services around the world. Its popularity grew thanks to offering millions of songs and albums from many artists in one place.

Spotify is available both through a web client and through dedicated apps (for mobile devices, consoles and Smart TVs).

The service even supports linking with compatible products (such as smart speakers) and external apps (such as Discord), expanding the possibilities of use.

Syncing between Discord and Spotify lets your contacts know what you’re currently listening to on Spotify, and even start listening together.

However, currently the Discord Spotify status is not working or displaying for many.

Discord Spotify status not displaying for many

Many Discord users are unable to access their Spotify status as the data is not displaying on their profiles.

The issue started off affecting the PC version, but later spread to the Discord mobile app as well.

Spoitify Discord Activity No Longer Shows

Hey everyone. my issue is that my Discord Spotify activity on my laptop isn’t showing up anymore, but has been showing up on my phone mostly just fine [now it’s not showing up].

Also, no workaround or troubleshooting seems to have helped affected users, so you should save your time as this seems to be a server-side issue.

I’m not sure what the issue is because none of the articles I’ve checked out have helped my particular issue [reconnecting Spotify to discord, etc]. I’ve even closed the apps several times to try and fix it [even on mobile] and I cannot seem to figure out the issue.
