How to Add Spotify to Virtual DJ for Mixing

Discover how to add and mix Spotify music on Virtual DJ with this guide.

"Does Virtual DJ still work with Spotify? If so, how can I use it?"

Since 2003, Virtual DJ (VDJ), with advanced features and streaming music source connectivity, has become the most popular DJ software with over 150 million users globally. Despite its advanced features, Virtual DJ no longer supports Spotify since the latter stopped supporting DJ apps, except Pacemaker, on July 1, 2020. Hence, users cannot directly mix songs from Spotify on Virtual DJ.

Fortunately, there is a workaround to add Spotify to Virtual DJ for mixing - download and convert Spotify songs to MP3 or FLAC format using a Spotify music converter, such as AudiFab Spotify Music Converter. Then, import the converted Spotify songs to Virtual DJ and play them on the console.
