How to Use Your iPhone as a Spotify Remote on the PS4 - 01

Procedure:

1. Download the Spotify app from the PlayStation Store, which you can do so by searching for it and selecting it from the list that pops up.

2. Install.

3. Head back to the home screen. You’ll see PlayStation Music on the home screen, along with Spotify as a joint effort. This is what allows you to log into Spotify on your PS4 and play music directly from the console.

If you want to control music using your iPhone, you actually don’t need to open up the app on your PS4, but you do need to make sure that your iPhone and your PS4 are connected to the same network or else it won’t work.

4. Simply open up Spotify on your iPhone, start playing a song, tap on the Now Playing bar at the bottom to bring up the album art and controls, and click on the Spotify Connect button at the very bottom.

From there, your Spotify music will automatically begin playing through your television’s speakers and you can continue to play a game on your PS4 just like you normally would.

Furthermore, you can hold down the PS button on your controller and control some things in the quick access menu like playback volume, play/pause the music, and even go to the next/previous track.
