How to add a Spotify now playing overlay to your Twitch or Mixer Stream


If you’re playing music on stream with a Spotify soundtrack, it’s really simple to share what you’re listening to with your audience.

Music can be an integral part of not only your own enjoyment while gaming, but also provide some additional entertainment to your audience when you’re streaming. You may have noticed some of your favorite streamers with a little overlay on their broadcasts telling everyone what track they’re currently listening to and thinking you’d like some of that yourself.

Fortunately, it’s not complicated. I’m focusing on Spotify here because it’s the most popular music streaming service and the one I use personally. But the program used here to do produce the overlay is compatible with other music apps, too.

Here’s how to get set up in both XSplit and OBS.
