spotify on vizio smart tv

I have a 2016 M-Series 49" UHD Vizio TV. I am currently trying to get the Spotify app for it, which the internet tells me exists but I cannot seem to get it on the APP store on the TV.

Anyone had this experience or know the solution?

Many Vizio TV users are having trouble getting the Spotify app on their TVs. But even some of them successfully get Spotify on Vizion smart TV, the app is far from good. It only shows top songs, Albums, your playlists and a search option. You can not browse the moods, genres or radio stations. If you want to add a new song on your TV, you can only go to the desktop app. Then come back and reload the app on your TV.

So in the following parts, I'm going to show you how to get the best experience using Spotify on Vizio TV and play Spotify on Vizio smart TV offline without Premium.

How to Get Spotify on Vizio Smart TV

Before you get started, make sure that your Vizio TV model has the capability of installing apps. Here's a list of Vizio TVs for your reference:

1. VIZIO VIA & VIA Plus TVs allow you to install apps from the Connected TV Store.
