As a MacBook user, you have the option to use the built-in Apple Music app for your favorite tunes. However, if you prefer to use Spotify or want to explore more music options, you can easily get Spotify on your MacBook. Here’s how you can enjoy your favorite songs and playlists while working or playing.
Install the Spotify Desktop App
If you’ve searched the Mac App Store for Spotify, you may have come across third-party apps that work with the music app but not Spotify itself. To get the official Spotify app on your MacBook, you’ll need to visit the Spotify website and follow these steps:
Step 1: Visit the Spotify download page for Mac and click on the Download button.
Step 2: Open the Spotify installer ZIP file from your Downloads folder using your web browser or Finder.
Step 3: Once the file is unzipped, open the Install Spotify file.
Step 4: A small box will appear, letting you know that the app is downloaded from the internet. Confirm that you want to open it by selecting Open.
Step 5: The application will start downloading and installing, and you’ll see a progress bar.
Step 6: Once the installation is complete, Spotify will open automatically. Click on Log in.
Step 7: Choose one of the options to sign into your Spotify account.
Now you can enjoy your favorite tunes or share your playlists using the Spotify desktop app. You can find the app in your Applications folder by going to Go > Applications from Finder. If you want, you can delete the downloaded files from Spotify.
Use the Spotify Web Player
If you prefer not to download the desktop version of Spotify, you can still enjoy music on your MacBook using the Spotify web player. Here’s how:
Step 1: Visit the Spotify web player and click on Log in.
Step 2: Sign in to your Spotify account using your email address, Facebook, Apple, or Google account.
Step 3: Once logged in, you can access your library or browse the home page for something new using the web player.
Whether you prefer Spotify as your music app of choice or want to discover new music, using Spotify on your Mac is simple. Enjoy!
