Hey folks,

 

It's currently not possible to use the full version of Spotify via the web player on iPad: if you go to open.spotify.com, you can only listen to 30-second previews of songs, and there's no option to log in (note that this doesn't just apply to Safari).

 

If you'd like for this feature to be implemented, make sure to head over here and create a new idea. That way, other users can show their support for the idea, and the more people that vote, the more likely it is to be implemented by Spotify in the future.

 

Thanks! Stay awesome 🙂

Hi!

 

I think you should be able to open the web player from your iPad with THIS LINK.

 

Best regards

 Doesn’t work. I mean: the page has just the usual list of genres and moods. Not my saved playlists or songs.

Hi again! 

 

I think you won't be able to use safari on iPad to open the web player because safari isn't in the system requirements of the web player. You can see this here.

 

Best regards

I'm using chrome, which is in the requirements.

but I can access just my profile.

no saved songs, no search button to look for songs. It,s just not Spotify, looks more like the profile management of Spotify.

Hi!

 

I thinks iOS doesn't have flash built in but you need it for the webplayer because Spotify webplayer requires Flash to play audio and to decode the tracks. Maybe you can use an iOS app with flash.

 

Best regards.

Hey @Pierale77

 

The web player is on open.spotify.com. I am entirely not sure about how it should look like on a tablet (because I don't have one), but since it's not regarded as, um, mobile device, you should be able to see the web player, especially since you're using a supported browser.

 

Open.spotify.com doesn't need flash. It uses HTML5 for media playback. Old player in play.spotify.com used Flash.

I tried it on my iPad too, but it isn’t working there.

I'm incredibly disappointed Spotify has made the decision not to support its users here. The corp iPad I'm using today has both Chrome and Safari on it, and both browsers support every other app I use. It's just Spotify that won't play, wanting me to install an app where I'm not allowed to.
