    Cortana to play Spotify instead of Groove

    Hi,

    Spotify is a digital music streaming app that gives you access to millions of songs, podcasts and videos from artists all over the world. To play music with Spotify, just connect Cortana to a Spotify Premium account. Here's how to connect your Spotify account
    to Cortana:

    • Open Cortana.
    • Select Notebook , then Music.
    • Choose Spotify, and enter your account information. Or, create an account.

    If the above solution did not solve your concern, we suggest to check out this
    help site for answers to your questions and to learn how to get the most out of Spotify and your music.

    Feel free to contact us if you have other inquiries.

    Regards.

  3. Unable to integrate Cortana with Spotify.

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    We can imagine how difficult it could be when app feature do not work the way they supposed to. However, could you please let us know from where you got the Spotify app?



    In the meantime, we would suggest you to follow steps mentioned below and check if it helps.



    1. Go to Settings > Time & Language.
    2. Click on Region & Language.
    3. Check if country and language is set to United States and
      English (United States).
    4. Then set up Cortana again.
    5. Log out from your Spotify account and log in again.
    6. Then try integrating Cortana with
      Spotify and check.

    We would also suggest you to run troubleshoot for Microsoft Store Apps if you have installed the app from Microsoft Store by referring to

    Fix problems with apps from Microsoft Store
    .



    You may also want to refer
    Fix problems with the Start menu or Cortana for details

    Cortana opens but does not play spotify request.

    Cortana, UK & Spotify

    Although I am a UK user, I have set Cortana's language to English (US). Until about a month ago this meant I was able to ask Cortana to play a particular artist on Spotify (premium account) and it would do so. Now, while it still replies (for example) "Here
    are some Bob Dylan songs on Spotify" all it does is open the app. Is this a deliberate change, either of Microsoft or Spotify? If not, any ideas on how to fix it? Cortana has Spotify connected in Notebook/Music, so that isn't the problem.

    Many TIA
