Hey folks,

 

Thanks for sharing your thoughts with the Community!

 

Just to clarify, users can still share their favorite Spotify tunes in such a way that the recipient has the option to choose whether or not to open them in the app. This is done when content is shared via the Spotify URI. This page explains how to find and share the URI.

 

If you'd like to have this option also for Spotify links, it's a good idea to +VOTE this idea and  subscribe to it, if you haven't already. We'll inform on any developments there, as soon as there are any. 

 

Hope this helps. Keep us posted if you have any questions.

There's a Chrome Extension that will do this while we wait around for Spotify to redirect those URLs to the native client.

If you guys don't get this solved, people will just move to Youtube (with more variety) or some other service that makes sharing much easier. I pay premium and waving customers off is bad juji.

For me, that extension only works for play.spotify urls, it doesn't work
for open.spotify... And the links that are shared now are all
open.spotify.com, so the extension doesn't add much value..

Please remove the webplayer completely, I will never use it.

Whenever I get a song through messenger I have to copy, paste and click like a maniac, completely destroying the vibe. Bring the option back!

This still doesn't work. It is very very frustrating.

This is a terrible user experience. Cmon Spotify, you're better than this.
