About putting tracks from Spotify on your website

If you have a blog/website about music, then you probably want to share clips with your readers.

Many music and video hosting sites allow you to do this by embedding: this means that you allow YouTube (or SoundCloud or Vimeo, etc.) to use a space on your site to show a particular piece of its content, with their logo/brand attached. to him They do this because it gives them exposure – and you keep visiting your site instead of sending them away.

There are some music recordings that are on Spotify, but not on any of the other music systems. Today, when you google “how to embed from Spotify, you get instructions that say “just right-click on the item in Spotify, and choose embed” (sometimes using slightly different words) – like this:

However, when I right click on a track in Spotify, the “Copy Embed Code” option is missing.

I’m not sure if this is because I don’t have a Premium subscription, because of some problem with my browser, or just because Spotify has changed its system but hasn’t updated its documents.

Fortunately, I found that there is a Spotify tool that you can use to generate the embed code.

How to show a song, album, artist or playlist from Spotify on your blog/website

1 Find the item (song, track, album or artist) you want to embed

2 Click on the right, and choose Copy>: Link (eg Copy Song Link or Copy Playlist Link)

3 Go to this web page (opens in a new tab or window when you click here): https://developer.spotify.com/technologies/widgets/spotify-play-button/

4 Scroll down to Get the Code, and paste the copied value in the box

5 Copy the code which is placed in the box below step 3.

6 For Blogger, install it on your blog the same way you install any other HTML code. For other tools, for example WordPress.org, follow the usual approach to embed the code

Job done!

You will now have an article from Spotify showing on your blog.

What exactly even It depends on the type of article, and perhaps where it is placed.

That this article embedded it does (for example, play a player by clicking on it) depends

  • Your visitor status: Spotify members see everything, members of the free service only see a 30-second clipand
  • where see it ie the country from which you access the Internet has the right to see the material you have shared

Problem solving

If you try to embed something, then visitors to your website accessing the Internet from another country if the “content owner” (ie the person who made the album, the track, etc.) has given permission for this.

If they don’t have this permission, you may see a response like the one on the right.
