Although it's been a long time since the first release of iPod, even Apple has decided not to manufacture iPod Nano/Shuffle anymore, iPod still plays a very important role in music entertainment. However, Spotify didn't release any app version that is compatible with iPod as yet, and it is foreseeable that Spotify will not develop such an App in the future.
Nowadays, because of iPod's outstanding performance, perfect music playback ability, and of course, its popular look, there are more than 400 million people using iPod on this planet. It can be said that iPod is almost the most famous offline music player.
When Spotify turned out, online music streaming services became popular, but users' enthusiasm for the iPod did not decrease. Instead, more and more people wanted to play Spotify music on the iPod. This idea was once realized, but it didn't last long, this useful feature was finally terminated.
Can People Enjoy Spotify Music on Their iPod?
For whatever reason, Spotify didn't connect this popular music streaming service with this famous music player, which made people who like iPod or Spotify feel disappointed. Not only that, because the downloaded Spotify music file is encrypted OGG Vorbis files, you are not allowed to move Spotify music songs to iPod Nano/Shuffle for listening even if you are using Spotify premium.
For iPod touch, you need a 6th or 7th generation iPod touch with iOS 10 or higher running so that you can play Spotify music on it, and this is not common among iPod users, not so many people own a 6th generation iPod Touch with iOS 10 running or a 7th iPod Touch. Besides, it is nearly impossible to play Spotify Music on iPod Touch 4th, 5th though you are the Premium.
Well, as we mentioned above, you can actually sync music with your own iPod including iPod Nano, Shuffle and even Classic by the Spotify desktop app via USB cable in the early days. But dramatically, Spotify has removed this feature for some reasons. And now, people who love both Spotify and iPod, just like you and me or anybody who is reading this article, need to find other ways to play our Spotify music on iPod.
