Aside from that, it is user-friendly and it can also be easily accessible to any device such as smartphones, smart speakers, and computers. But do you know that you can also play Spotify on Samsung TV or any smart TV?
Yes, you read it correctly! it may seem uncommon for some but because of continuous technological advancement, you can now also use your TV to play your favorite Spotify songs just like any device. This could take your music experience to the next level especially if you have a good surround speaker system attached to your Samsung TV.
So, what are you going to expect in this post? Well, in here, we will talk about the compatibility of the Spotify app on Samsung TV why some can’t find it on their app store, how to fix it if ever you encounter downloading your Spotify app and easy methods that you can use so that you can play Spotify on Samsung TV. Interesting right? So, what are we waiting for? Let’s get the ball rolling.
One of the questions that I encounter that circulating online is some seem to can’t find Spotify app on their Samsung smart TV. So, what’s the reason for this? Actually, Spotify requires a specific operating system which is the Tizen version 2.3 and above, therefore, if your Samsung TV doesn’t have this os then you really can’t find Spotify in it. Moreover, this version is available on Samsung TVs that are manufactured from 2015 onwards.
So, if you want to know if your Samsung TV supports Spotify, then here’s how to check it.
Note: If you can’t find Spotify App it means that your Samsung smart TV doesn’t support it.
Like what we had discussed earlier, one reason could be that your Samsung smart TV’s OS or model doesn’t support the Spotify app. If so, perhaps you can try updating your Samsung TV and reinstall the Spotify app. I included here ways how to update your Samsung smart TV.
If you have an internet connection on your Samsung TV, then you can set it automatically to update your smart TV. For you to do this, go to settings, then select Support, after that choose Update and finally set Auto Update on or you can just click Update Now. Note that don’t turn it off or else you will lose the progress, it will just automatically restart once completed. If there is no update then just click “Okay” to exit.
First, you have to visit Samsung Download Center, then select the Product type, or just enter the model number to be more specific. Next, download the firmware file of your TV on the support page. Once the download is completed, copy it on your USB (Note: it shouldn’t be inside any folder because Samsung TV might not read it) then connect it to your TV. Next, with the use of your remote controller, go to settings, then select Support, after that click Update Now, and then click Yes, it will automatically look for the update.
Finally, when you already updated your Samsung TV you can try to reinstall the Spotify app and see if you can download it.
Absolutely! Previously the Spotify app on TV is only limited to premium users, but now, a free user can also access it for those who have Samsung TV produced in the year 2015 or above. However, it is expected that free users may encounter lots of ads and actions can be limited unlike with premium users. But anyway, it is not a bad idea that you can still play Spotify on Samsung TV.
So, let’s proceed with the methods that you can use for you to able to play Spotify on Samsung TV. I presented here two methods that I think are easier and effective.
With the use of your smart Samsung TV, you can download the Spotify app directly into it, just see the following steps that I provided below on how you can download the app. (Note that this method works for 2015 or the latest models of Samsung TV, therefore, check your TV model first before downloading Spotify app on your Samsung TV)
