Compared with its similar products, Spotify Music provides users with over 50,000,000 songs, a great number of podcasts, and audiobooks for free/premium, winning millions of music lovers and fans. For them, the iPod Touch may be a portable tool to enjoy smooth melodies and lyrics.

However, there are barriers when it comes to using this app—your iPod Touch has to be the 5th-7th generation with iOS 10 running, where Spotify Music is compatible; if your iPod Touch is under 5th generation/iOS 10, situations will become thorny even though you are the Premium. What's worse, things will become challenging if you want a bit more than just listening to music on the Spotify app—playing Spotify on other platforms, no Spotify premium, downloading to play high-quality Spotify, etc.

Don't worry, this post will provide you with 2 practical ways to stream music from Spotify on iPod Touch without obstacles. Please scroll down to continue reading.
