Show your Spotify playlist to your Discord friends
Spotify is one of the biggest music streaming providers right now, and a big part of that is how you can create playlists (anything from songs to podcasts) and save them to your library. The beauty of using the Spotify app is that it easily integrates with other apps and systems (like your Google Nest) so you can share your library of playlists anywhere.

Share your favorite tracks on Discord
Music and even podcasts are at their best when shared online and in communities, and it’s great to see more apps being supported on Discord, a popular online hub for gamers and celebrities to meet up. Even Spotify is realizing that sharing music with the people hanging in your circles can add new creativity and discoveries through the added Playlist Blend feature, which blends your friend’s music tastes with your own. Not only can you jam along to your favorite tracks on Discord, but you can also pull up your Spotify queue while you’re on the road with the limited Spotify Car Thing accessories. Expect growth in apps and systems over time to support Spotify app integration, which is helpful when trying to keep your music library in one place.
