Why Spotify Discontinued BarCodes?


Why Spotify Discontinued BarCodes?

Just curious, does anyone know why Spotify chose to discontinue the use of the barcodes?

Maybe it's easier to scan barcodes than something else.

Sorry, I meant why did they DISCONTINUE (so it appears). I can no longer create barcodes

Hey @SpotyThrowbacks 


I can still see those barcodes when I go to the share screen on any album/song/playlist.

I did notice it may take a couple of tries to make the barcode visible.


What device are you using and is your app up to date? 🙂



The last time I had Spotify (PC) installed, I used to be able to quickly create a bar code. However, as far as I know, the feature has not been brought back.
