Why Can’t I Link Peloton to Spotify?

Peloton and Spotify aren’t directly linked, and there’s no official way to connect them. Peloton’s official music integrations include Apple Music, Peloton Music, and Spotify Radio. There could be a few reasons why you can’t link Peloton to Spotify:

1. The two services aren’t compatible: Although both Peloton and Spotify are industry giants, they haven’t partnered to offer direct integration between their services.

2. Restriction on content distribution: Spotify doesn’t allow other apps to access its content library, which is why it’s difficult to directly link the two services.

3. Business and legal reasons: It’s possible that the two companies have their own business strategies and legal agreements, which prevent them from integrating directly.

Additional Tips
