My Question or Issue

Hi guys, I have installed the Spotify app on my Mac  Pro... but when someone sends me a link to a playlist via Slack the playlist always opens in browser rather than the App, even if the App is launched. 

 

It seems a bit silly that it doesn't know to open in the App. 

 

Can you tell me why that is? and can we make it work as described above? 

 

Much appreciated!! 

 

Thanks,

Mariana

Hey @tibuhmariana! Welcome to the Spotify Community. ^^

 

Unfortunately, this isn't possible.

You could copy the Spotify URL and paste it into the apps search bar. It should take you to the playlist / song / artist.

 

Here's another workarround:

When in the web player, just click on the device switcher (the icon at the bottom, looks the same as in the desktop app) and choose your computer. The preference will stick until explicitly switched again. ^^

 

Let me know if that helps, thanks!
