Did you ever find a solution to this problem. I have the same issue, seems Samsung Music ignores Spotify Premium. I haven't found any solution. Did you make any progress.
Hi, Jonty1512. Yes, it's true. I understood, that all downloaded songs in Spotify can only played by Spotify Player. I had the same situation. Despite this I like Spotify app because of it advantages: a huge database of music, multiplatform, excellent system of music selection, connection of social networks, sound quality, cheap paid subscription. Besides, if you have a musical talent and you record covers like me, you can try Spotify promotion.

If samsung music cannot play Spotify premium, why does bixby not allow you to use Spotify and only Samsung music.
Prevention of access to apps seems a guaranteed way to force people to google assistant.
OK google submit
This is purely a sham. I a samsung consumer that purchases samsung for the intergration simplicity. Now that I have a Samsung Soundbar, Samsung S20 Ultra, Samsung Smart Hub, Samsung home security, this piece of ***** want me to use Samsung music so I can use wifi speaker? I can't use the option to play through pandora? Why? Even If I use samsung Music and even If I choose to use spotify throught Samsung app, you now tell me after I create an account and sign in, then authorize everything, I have to sign up to premium to even play through my soundbar? WTF, this is *****!
I understand about not being able to play DOWNLOADED music due to licensing issues, but none of my Spotify Premium music was downloaded. It was all just streamed.
No where does Samsung Music show anywhere I can log in to Spotify to access my account.
What gives? Can I play Spotify Premium on Samsung Music or is this a fairy tale?
I too have a Spotify premium account & I understand rights issues and all that but what's the point of having an option for a Spotify tab in the Samsung Music Player if it's not going to work. I also have some of my playlists saved to my device which I can't access with the Samsung Music Player. Doesn't make sense.
I can't agree more. The Spotify Premium music is streamed even though it can play offline. Now I am considering if I should try to truly download the Spotify songs by using an extra tool, such as Audfree Spotify song downloader. But the legality is still a big problem. I am still hesitating.
Sharing my experience for you,I am using the Spotify free account so there are many limitation.such as couldn't listen to the music offline,then I serched on the internet and found that there are many music Music Converter on the market.finally I choose one called Tunelf Spotify Music Converter to convert music to MP3 ,add the song to my phone and could listen offline now. I don't know legality or not..😂
