So, if you want to listen to Spotify on Discord but Spotify not showing as status on discord then you can disconnect Spotify and re-integrate once again. Doing this way, it will fix the internal connection issues and reset the process.
Other than this, if you’ve changed your password to Spotify after connecting to Discord then it will break the connection between your Discord and Spotify server. So, if discord not showing Spotify then re-connect the Spotify account to the Discord interface.

Solution 3: Enable Display Spotify as your Status
After you link your Spotify account with Discord then it will be displayed on the “Connections” section inside the settings. You will see your Spotify display name under the connection so that you can determine whether it is fully connected or not.
When it’s connected successfully then you will have the option to Display Spotify on your Discord profile as well as on Discord Status. So, if you’ve disabled the “Display Spotify as your Status” then you won’t see listening to Spotify on discord status.
Therefore, enable the “Display Spotify as your Status” option if Discord won’t show what song on Spotify I’m listening to.

Activity status on discord will automatically update your connected status while you are playing games or listening to music. But, it might also cause trouble between the gaming status and other running statuses.

This is how you can turn off activity status on Discord.
- Open Discord on the desktop.
- Select the User settings.
- Under the activity settings section, select Activity Status.
