Using Spotify is a great way to get all of your favourite music in one single place, ready to be streamed or even downloaded.

Let's find out, then, how to get Spotify on MacBook so you can have your songs anywhere.

Apple has been on a roll recently, with devices such as the iPhone 15 Pro Max and the iPhone 15 pro making the rounds, but clearly the MacBook remains a much beloved series of computers.

So let's bring the music to our little computers and find out how to get Spotify on it.

How to get Spotify on Macbook

You have two choices on how to use Spotify on Mac, you can install the app or just simply use the web player in the browser.

Having the app installed allows you much better control of your music, along with choosing the bitrate and other interesting options.

  • Once complete, the app should open. Now you can simply log in with the usual options.

That should allow you to enjoy all your favourite albums and podcasts without any more issues. If the installation process failed, make sure you don't have another version of the app previously installed.

Use Spotify Web Player on your MacBook

If you don't want to go through the process of installing another app on your MacBook, for some reason, then you can simply listen to all your favorite albums and pocasts on the web browser.
