Spotify Premium users cannot use the same account to listen to different music on two devices simultaneously. The service identifies when the accessed profile in two different places, and then, d the user to the option to continue listening to the same song on the new device. However, there are tricks that can easily circumvent this limitation, allowing the account to be accessed at the same time on different devices.
On iPhone (iOS) and Android, the free SoundHound app accomplishes this task by linking a Spotify account and opening the user's playlists. In addition, this app displays the lyrics of the songs, a function that does not exist any more at Spotify. The premium account of the streaming service also allows you to download playlists, albums and tracks to listen offline, so that two devices with the same account can simultaneously play songs from the user's account.
To learn how to use both tricks and be able to listen to music from your Spotify account at the same time on two devices, follow the tutorial we have prepared.
