Spotify Troubles

Jump to solution

Hey, can anyone help me get Spotify? For some reason it does not show up on my roku itself or on the app, but is on the web version of the channel store, and says it is already installed when I don't have it. I am not sure what to do or if I am gonna to go without, any help would be appreciated, thank you!

Do you have an older Roku? What is your model number? Some channel apps require the advancements of later models and can't be installed on older, less capable models.

Per https://www.lifewire.com/how-to-add-spotify-to-roku-4628130:

All Roku TVs and Roku streaming devices with a model number of 3600 or higher are compatible with the upgraded Spotify app.

  • Roku Streaming Stick +, 3810X, Ser YH0059427035, wifi LivRm - Samsung UN55ES6100
  • Roku Streaming Stick, 3600X, Ser 5S56D8240827, wifi BedRm - JVC EM37T
  • Roku 3, 4200X, Ser 4124C7087583, wifi GstRm - Sanyo DP26640
  • Roku 2 XD, 3050X (collecting dust in a drawer)

**bleep**, mine says 2710X, guess I will have to go without for now. I even have it updated so I couldn't figure out what was wrong. Figured if it did YouTube fine, Spotify wouldn't be an issue.
