Discord wont show songs that are playing in spotify

Right so i connected my account - https://open.spotify.com/user/fenix%5B%E4%B8%89%E4%B8%83%5D?si=Y7xjTGVARj2RKuKTQ5NUFg to my discord but the songs that are playing wont show in my discord activity,  i made a new account to test it and everything worked fine, so my guess is that i have those characters in my username - fenix[(removed characters)] that are blocking it somehow also my profile link looks broken tbh and i had some issues before when i tried to post it on other sites.

Limk - https://open.spotify.com/user/fenix%5B%E4%B8%89%E4%B8%83%5D?si=Y7xjTGVARj2RKuKTQ5NUFg

 

please help 😞

Hey, @Fnxx -

 

Did you make sure you turned on your Spotify status on Discord?

 

Go to User Settings > Connections and turn on 'Display Spotify as your status' under your settings.

 

Tell me how it goes 🙂

Hey, @Fnxx -

 

Sorry for the late reply;

 

First, can you try making a new Discord account and connecting your Spotify account to that account?

 

Also, please make sure you're not running any background processes those are detected by discord.

 

If you are playing a game(or other programs) that Discord detects, the game will take precedence and Spotify won't show as your status;

Hey,

I have the same problem as @Fnxx . My Spotify usernames contains two "^". But I connected my Spotify account to Facebook so it shows my Facebook name on my profile instead  (https://open.spotify.com/user/%5Espotifykonto%5E?si=knSwoqJwRvaJ6u6TWfHzEw). I have tried connecting different Spotify accounts to Discord that didn't contain any **bleep** characters and it worked just fine. But I don't want to use a different Spotify account since I have Spotify Premium on my normal Account and I don't want to loose all my playlists.

Hey, @h31s3nb3rg_dll -

 

If your username has characters such as <, >, {, ] in it, it is possible that you're experiencing connection issues with Spotify and Discord.

 

However, you can set up a new Spotify account and have the Support team to transfer your data so you can connect Spotify with Discord;

 

You can reach out to Spotify Support via Twitter or Facebook.

 

Thank you 🙂

I had the same problem, but i fixed it by just simply disconnecting Spotify from Discord and reconnect it again. Now it works.
