Copy Song Link - Sharing

Copy Song Link - Sharing

Hello All.

So here is the question, This is in regards to pay subscription accounts.  So If I am listening to a song that I like to share with others, I normally use the share | Copy Song Link and paste that into either e-mail, chat, Social Media etc for whom ever to share.  Here is the question

  • Do the person who receives and or sees the link need to have an account in Spotify to listen to the song. Do Spotify wants them to create an account in order for them to listen to the song?

Hey there @Ardeshir,


Thanks for reaching out here in the Community. We moved your post from the Chat section to the help boards as its content fits better here.


That's correct. In order for someone else to be able to play a song that you just shared, they'll need to log in to a Spotify account. However, if the other person is using a free account on a mobile device, they might hear the song along with some others that will be added as part of the free listening experience.


Hope this helps. If anything else comes up, the Community will be here.
