    Hi Itzwolfplayz! My name is Ricardo an independent advisor ready to help you with this situation!

    If you pin the widget it will be displayed on top of any other app, that's how it works, you can't pin it to just stay on the desktop and tht other apps stay above it, Xbox game bar doesn't have that option, you can make configure the transparency on it so you can see trough it but it will remain on top of everything

    is not visible. I advise you to activate Widget, in the settings in widget menu or customize, reset. if not, I advise you to restore/reinstall the Xbox Game Bar app.

    Xbox Game Bar - Spotify Widget

    hey, any of the suggestions worked? thanks

    I believe it the cause of a non-host family account / student account and they gave up on fixing.

    Xbox Game Bar - Spotify Widget

    Hello Johnathan Reynolds1,

    Welcome to the Xbox Community Forum. Thank you for sharing your concern with us today and we hope that all is well.

    Please ensure that your computer is completely updated, including all optional updates, and then restart your computer. Additionally, please make sure that the Xbox App and Xbox Game Bar app are updated on your PC. To do this, please launch the Microsoft Store on your computer and then select the Library icon in the bottom left. In the Library page, please select Get updates and then Update all after all of the updates have been pulled. If either app needs an update, please try to link Spotify again after the update is complete.

    We also recommend that you sign out of the Xbox Game Bar and back in to see if a reauthentication of your account fixes the issue. To do this, please launch the Xbox Game Bar by pressing the Win + G keys. Next, open the Settings cog in the top overlay ribbon and select Accounts. Under the Xbox Network tab, select Sign out. Next, sign back in and see if the issue persists.

    Regarding linking your Spotify account, please follow these steps to ensure that it is done correctly. Launch the Xbox Game Bar by pressing the Win + G keys. Next, open the Settings cog in the top overlay ribbon and select Accounts. Next to the Spotify icon, select Sign in and sign in with your Spotify credentials. If you have Spotify through a service, then you’ll have to sign in through that provider. For example, I have Spotify through the Hulu + Spotify student bundle - but since I have my Spotify linked to my Facebook account I had to select “Continue with Facebook” and sign in that way.

    After you sign in through your correct provider, then Spotify should be successfully linked to your account, and you’ll be able to pin the Spotify widget to the Xbox Game Bar overlay.

    If you are still experiencing this issue after following the suggestions above, then we recommend that you repair/reset the Xbox Game Bar. You can do this by going to Settings > Apps > Apps & features and then searching for Xbox Game Bar in the search bar. From here, click the Advanced options button on the Xbox Game Bar tile and then select Repair and Reset. After that is completed, please try to link your Spotify again.

    You can also try reinstalling the Gaming Services package. To do this, please follow the steps below.

    Reinstall the Gaming Services Package

    1. Right-click the Start button in the lower-left corner of the main screen, and then select Windows PowerShell (Admin).
    2. On the Windows PowerShell Administrator screen, type the following command, and then press Enter:
      1. Get-AppxPackage *gamingservices* -allusers | remove-appxpackage -allusers
    3. Restart your computer and see if the problem is resolved.

    We look forward to your response. Kindly let us know if these suggestions help by selecting “Yes” or “No” next to “Was this response helpful?”. If this response answered your question, please select it as the “Answer”. Additionally, if there is any misunderstanding or clarification needed, please reply to this response.

    Sincerely,
