I have been scrobbling my music on a variety of platform streaming services since 2009. Eight years of scrobbles. Twenty Seven Thousand plus songs and more. If spotify cannot work together with Last.fm to provide scrobble support, then I have to agree, its time to move to a different online streaming service for music that DOES support scrobbles. My scrobbles stopped being tracked by spotify in April 2017. No info from Spotify. The prior page explaining how to connect spotify to last fm suggests options that are *no longer present*. There is no "setting" option. Just "Account". There is no "social" option. The instruction page from Spotify still exists, but the UX has been redesigned and does not provide this step. If Spotify's arrangement with Niland Music means no to Last FM scrobbles, then cya later spotify.
So, they closed all the loopholes as of today. I was able to change the network settings to fool Chrome (not really, it's a possibility in developer tools) that I'm using IE11 and open Play.spotify.com (the one with the settings and scrobbling) but yesterday it switched back to open.spotify.com, I changed it to IE10 and it worked, but today nothing works. Everything is whether not supported or switches to "open". At work I cannot instal even a chrome addon so don't lead me that way. The only possible way is if there's a webplayer that can login to Spotify and scrobble too. Please let me know if you know any.
Switching to Deezer was a great decision for me. Solved this problem and more. Seriously. I can Scrobble, AND I can order my playlists. Stop wasting time on a music app that removed fundamental functionality.
