Spotify® Support Community Guidelines

 

Effective as from 26 September 2019

 

 

The integrity and safety of our Community and our users means a lot to us. In order to keep the Community as efficient and helpful as possible, we expect you to observe the Spotify Support Community Terms which includes the guidelines:

 

  1. Before searching for a thread related to your topic or posting a question regarding a problem, try reinstalling the Spotify application.
  2. Before posting or creating a new thread, make sure the issue you’re experiencing or the question you have is not already posted somewhere in the Community. Multiple threads on the same issue create clutter.
  3. Avoid double posting. Spotify will delete duplicate threads or posts on the same questions created by a user.
  4. Make sure that the thread you are posting on is relevant for your issue (for example, please do not post an iPhone related response on an Android related thread). Also, make sure that the thread is not outdated or relates to issues that have already been fixed or dealt with by Spotify.
  5. Please only post information relevant for the thread and avoid discussing personal matters or topics unrelated to Spotify services.
  6. Create a new thread or find another related thread if you have multiple queries. Do not add further queries to an existing thread.
  7. Be careful about the information that you post. Keep in mind that your posts will be available for all users of the Community.
  8. Always use an appropriate and respectful language when you post information in the Community. Avoid racist, sexist, abusive, harassing, defamatory, pornographic, threatening, obscene or otherwise offensive language that could be considered detrimental to other users, or Spotify employees or moderators.
  9. Do not post information or create threads for the promotion or advertisement of commercial products or services.
  10. Please do not post information such as name, address, personal identification number, social security number, email address, credit card information, or other personal information of you or other persons. Also make sure that you have all legal rights and/or consents to post any information or other material that you provide or link to through the Community.
  11. For obvious reasons, do not post links to malware, trojan viruses, or otherwise malicious content.
  12. Do not spam users via the blast of Private Messages tool in the Community. 
  13. Do not run your own contests in this Community.
  14. Spotify employees and moderators will identify themselves in the Community by using the Spotify logo as avatars. Do not use any Spotify logo or trade name as your avatar or user name, or otherwise pose as a Spotify employee or moderator when posting in the Community.
  15. Do not post links to older or unofficial versions of the Spotify app. All users should only download the app from our official website.

Our Music Area is for fans to discuss what they’re listening to and share recommendations. Please keep the following in mind when participating:

  1. Do not post “Follow for follow” threads--these will be removed. 
  2. No “Submit songs for my playlist here” threads or requests. 
  3. Playlists should only be posted in the Playlist Exchange area. Users can comment on playlists if they have a song suggestion (but see point 4 below). 
  4. If you’re an artist or creator, you can share each of your albums, songs or podcasts just once in our forums (we recommend picking the most relevant thread). The best place to learn about promoting your content is the Spotify Gameplan videos here
