How to play Spotify on Apple TV

How you get Spotify on your Apple TV will depend on your Apple TV model. Apple TV 4K and Apple TV HD can both download the Spotify app directly, while you'll need to use an external device to stream Spotify on older models. Identify your Apple TV model.

Method 1 Via Spotify app on Apple TV 4K or Apple TV HD

1. Open the App Store from your Apple TV Home screen.

2. Search Spotify from the top-right of the screen

3. Click on "Get" or "Install" to download Spotify. If you've downloaded the app previously, it will instead show a cloud with an arrow coming out of it.

4. Once downloaded, launch the app. Log into your account.

5. When you click on "Log In," a screen will give you a code that you can use to pair your Spotify account.

6. On any device with an internet browser, whether it be your phone or computer, go to and log into your Spotify account.

7. Once logged in, enter the code from your Apple TV into the box above the "PAIR" button, then click on "PAIR."

8. The website will process your request. Once done, it will say "Your device has been successfully paired."

Method 2 Via AirPlay

This method applies to all Apple TV models, including Apple TV 1st, 2nd, or 3rd Generation. Older Apple TV models don't have App Store, so can't installed new apps. In this case, you will need to use the AirPlay feature, which is native to almost every Apple device, to stream Spotify music to Apple TV.

2. Go to your Spotify app on your iPhone or iPad and select or launch a song.

3. Next to the “Current Song” field, press the down arrow.

4. There you will get to the “Available devices” section. Then you have to select your Apple TV to start the stream via “AirPlay”.
