“Can You Play Spotify Playlists While Streaming On Twitch? – I Have spotify premium, can i play spotify playlists while live streaming on twitch? If yes, how can I play Spotify on Twitch?”

According to Spotify copyright protection policies, it’s illegal to rebroadcast copyrighted material from Spotify. Even you are a Spotify Premium subscriber, you have no right to rebroadcast any of the music from Spotify on other music streaming services. At the same time, your VOD on Twitch will be muted or explicitly taken down if you play copyrighted content. However, if you are the copyright owner, or have been authorized to use the Spotify music, you will be able to play Spotify on Twitch Stream. In this guide, we would like to talk about how to add Spotify to Twitch Stream, and effective solutions to help you download Spotify music for offline listening with different Spotify music downloader apps.

Part 1: Brief Introduction to Twitch

Let’s firstly get some information about Twitch. As a popular online streaming service, Twitch enables you to watch and stream digital video broadcasts. The video broadcasting originally mainly focused on video games in its early days, but gradually expends to streams like artwork creation, music, talk shows, and the occasional TV series.

Brief Introduction to Twitch

It is totally free to watch broadcast and videos on Twitch. You could watch Twitch videos on various devices including: computer (the official Twitch website), iOS and Android devices, Xbox 360 and Xbox One video game consoles, Sony’s PlayStation 3 and 4, Amazon’s Fire TV, Google Chromecast, and the NVIDIA SHIELD, and others that have official Twitch app installed.

Twitch will recommend new and popular streamers on the front page, and also allow you to browse streamers under different video categories. On Twitch, you could also follow or directly message others just like you do on other social networks like Facebook to stay communicated with your followers, strangers, and friends.

Partners and Affiliates are special types of Twitch accounts that essentially allow for monetization of broadcasts. As long as you meet certain requirements set by Twitch, you could become a Twitch partner or affiliate to make money. The streaming service boasts over 2 million unique streamers every month and more than 17 thousand of these users earn money through the Twitch Partner program.

Part 2: How to Play Spotify Music on Twitch Stream

As mentioned above, it is illegal to add Spotify music to Twitch Stream due to the copyright protection. If you own the songs that have been uploaded to Spotify, you could broadcast it on Twitch Stream. You could even become a Twitch Partner through this kind of music creation. Twitch also allows you to add your own songs to Twitch Music Library so that others might broadcast Twitch with your music

1. If you are an artist, label or other music copyright holder,

2. And are interested in making music freely available to the Twitch audience,

3. And you have a minimum of 250,000 subscribers or followers on YouTube, Facebook and/or Twitter.

Step 5. You then tap the Record button again to stop recording the video within your Snapchat app.

Then you could apply to contribute your songs to other Twitch users. If you don’t meet these requirements, actually you could still add Spotify songs now playing overlay to your Twitch Stream with the help of some third-party tools like XSplit.

songs to other Twitch users

The following steps would show you how to add a Spotify playlist overlay a Twitch stream in detail:

1. Download and install Snip and XSplit for Windows. Once you’ve extracted the contents and run Snip for the first time, a text file will be generated in the same folder (snip.txt, pictured above). You’ll need to know the exact location of this file before you go any further.

2. Then, set up Snip with XSplit. From the plugin store, make sure title (legacy) is installed in XSplit.
3. Select “add” in the sources list.

4. Then click the “widgets” option.
5. Select “title (legacy)” option afterwards.

6. In the popup box, paste the file location for the Snip text file generated earlier.

7. Ensure the remote text update box is checked.
8. Click OK.

In this way, you will add Spotify music now playing onto Twitch Stream easily. Your audience will see the track information but can’t hear any sound of the music. They will know what you are listening to. Only showing the track title and information won’t violate the copyright protection policies.
