“Something went wrong when I was planning to listen to Spotify music on my iPod Nano. Is there a direct way to enjoy Spotify music on iPod nano so as to add fun when I an exercising or hiking?”

DRM or Digital Rights Management is a set of access control technologies that exercise stringent restrictions on media content by certain companies. For example, Apple uses DRM to protect their content of iTunes, App Store, etc. Similarly, the Spotify Music Streaming service also uses DRM to protect their music. Spotify DRM does not allow them to copy downloaded songs and listen to devices on any other platform, even if they have subscribed to the service.

In addition, Spotify App is widely supported by different platforms such as iOS, Android, and Windows. However, the iPod Nano/Shuffle does not have built-in WIFI functionality and cannot download the corresponding Spotify app, so listening to Spotify music on iPod Nano/Shuffle is difficult as long as DRM protection still exists.
