The PlayStation 5 (PS5), which is the follow-up model of Playstation 4 (PS4), was released by Sony Interactive Entertainment LLC in November 2020. As a home video game console, the PlayStation 5 also supports music applications such as Spotify, Amazon Music, etc., to bring more entertainment to people. Besides, the PlayStation 5 can also support playing the music files imported from a USB drive or other external sources. What’s more, you can listen to music while playing PS5 games.

However, on the PS5 official website, we can find that Spotify in PS5 only supports 68 countries and regions to stream music on it. So if your country is not supported, you can’t use Spotify on your PS5. Another problem is that Spotify on PS5 now only supports a maximum sound quality of 128kbps. Even if your account is a Premium one, you cannot adjust it.

Below we'll explain how to set up Spotify on PS5, enjoy Spotify music on PS5 while playing compatible games, and play Spotify songs offline.

Part 3: How to Play Spotify Songs Offline on PS5

If you are facing problems and not able to use Spotify on your PS5, we advise you to use the third-party software to convert the Spotify songs to the common audio format like MP3 or AAC, so that you can simply import the songs to your PS5 through the USB drive for background playback.
