If you are trying to directly add music from Spotify to movie maker, edit a short video on your phone with something like iMovie, or import your Spotify songs to any other video apps, you will find out that it seems to be an impossible task.
Spotify is a streaming music service, offering DRM-protected songs, and not licensed for being used on any video editor. Popular editing tools like iMovie support importing songs in common formats, such as MP3, WAV, AAC …, but don’t support the DRM-loaded music from Spotify.
