Spotify is no longer available in VDJ 8?! On Sep. 8th, 2017, Virtual DJ announced a major change in their music streaming capabilities – a complete removal of Spotify from the streaming library options: Spotify is currently no longer available in VDJ 8 as they have recently changed their terms in regards to using Spotify inside Professional DJ applications. We are in discussions with Spotify in order to restore and improve the service but currently no ETA can be provided.

By now, it seems that Spotify has proven not to be ideal for DJ use. Of course not! This article is going to show you how to add Spotify songs to Virtual DJ software with an exclusive method.

Virtual DJ 8 is now not licensed for streaming Spotify. To import Spotify songs to VDJ, we will have to download Spotify music to our local computer first.
