Grand Theft Auto V(GTA 5) is an action-adventure game published by Rockstar Games in 2013. The game was firstly released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and was available on Microsoft Windows PC in 2015. The game is famous for its heist plots and driving gameplays. Players can get into whatever car they want and use the audio system in the car to play songs. But originally there're no songs in the game and users have to put their music files in a specific folder to import songs into the game.

A user from Reddit proposed an interesting idea on how you can play Spotify on GTA 5:

In GTA, most of us have cars that should be equipped with the latest technology. For example, you would think that a T20, a Zentorno, or a X80 should have Bluetooth in the Radio.

Now this is where my idea comes in:

For this idea to work, you will need to be a Spotify Premium as you need Spotify Connect and would need to implement the API (they don't actually need hardware). Whenever you get into a compatible car (think like T20) Spotify Connect kicks in. That way you can control the music from your device or computer.

Unfortunately, Spotify hasn't implemented such a feature on GTA 5 yet. But, today I'm going to show you how to play Spotify on GTA 5 without subscribing to Spotify's premium plan.

Download Spotify Songs with TunesKit

There's no integration between Spotify and GTA 5, so if you want to play Spotify songs on GTA, you'll have to download them in the first place. But due to the DRM protection, any songs downloaded from Spotify can not be played elsewhere or applied to public using without the authorization from Spotify.

But thanks to the TunesKit Spotify Music Converter, you'll be able to download Spotify songs directly to your local file folder and you can put and play them anywhere.
