As for this, this article would recommend two feasible methods for you to choose. The first one is to use the add-ons function of Kodi, which is a bit complex; if you are willing to pursuit effectiveness and simplicity, then the second one, transferring Spotify Music to Kodi, would be your choice.

Part 1: Use Add-ons to Install Spotify Music (Complex)

Kodi has a strong function -- Add-ons, which allows users to install many other plug-ins. Spotify is a third-party addon and you must download a specific zip file made for Kodi -- Marcelveldt Repository on your computer first.

1. Open Kodi and find Settings

2. Find "System" and enable "Unknown Sources"

3. Go back to Setting and select "File Manager"

4. Select "Add Source" and then click "None"

5. Enter the paths that you save the zip file and click "ok"

6. Enter a name for the source and click "ok"

7. Go back to Settings and find add-ons

8. Select "Install from zip file" and click the file you created

9. Wait for successful installation

10. Go back to "Add-ons"

11. Find "Install from Repository" and select "Marcelveldt’s BETA Repository"

12. Select "Music Add-ons"

13. Scroll down to find "Spotify"

14. Tap "Install" and wait for installation

15. Configure your Spotify login details and done

The first method is not only complex but not secure. It might expose your personal web data to others because you have chance to download virus that has been disguised as zip file. So using a VPN to hide your real IP address when trying this method is recommended, so that the virus could not steal your information.

Part 2: Transfer Spotify Music to Kodi (Simple)

Comparably, the second method is more secure and simple, thus more recommended. The use of this method would help you completely stream Spotify Music to Kodi, moreover, you have the permanent MP3 music files in hands. Wherever and whenever you want to listen to your favorite music, just play it out loud on any devices! Even your Spotify account is expired or you are suffering from bad internet connection.
