    +1 I understand if listen with is too much to program, but at least seeing what they're listening to would be nice

    I came on here specifically to suggest this. I'm glad others want this as well, and have already requested it! Let's hope we get it soon!

    +1! Like Calcifer said I don't expect or need the "listen along" feature but I don't see why we can't have it displayed on profile

    As far as I know, this is a limitation on Spotify's end and it is not possible without Spotify changing their things.

    On desktop, I believe Discord is using Spotify API to get the song information. This is the API for getting information about the current track: https://developer.spotify.com/documentation/web-api/reference/player/get-the-users-currently-playing-track/

    As you can see in the sample data on that page, it gives great data about a song. I tried listening podcast instead of a song, and the API gets me this:

    I didn't see anything else referring to current track in the API documentation, so I guess it is not currently possible via the API.

    On Android, Spotify uses something called 'broadcasting' to tell Discord the song info. Spotify broadcasts data to every other app whichever is listening to. Discord catches certain broadcasts, in this case Spotify's broadcasts. Discord's Android app doesn't show any listening status when listening to podcast on mobile, so might be that Spotify is not broadcasting podcast data either.
