Introducing the Spotify Play Button

[ Edited ]

Yesterday, we announced the Spotify Play Button, a wonderful new way of integrating Spotify content within blogs, websites and other social networks.

 

The Spotify Play Button is a simple yet extremely powerful music widget that makes it easier than ever to deliver all the world’s music to fans of your website or blog. Adding the Spotify Play Button to your Tumblr, website or social page will light it up with music in a flash and feature any song, album or playlist. To enjoy the tunes, all you have to do is hit Play. Totally free. Totally instant. Totally awesome.


 

 

For more information about the Spotify Play Button, check out our blog post and developer site.

This comes very handy for my project Bungalow, which aims to be a open source framework for html5 apps, and should also be able to run simpler spotify apps

Re: Introducing the Spotify Play Button

Are listeners required to have Spotify installed on their computer/phone to play shared music?

Broken play button

Is the play button appearing broken for anyone else?

 

I may have made a community change which caused this.  I'd like to know if I'm the only one seeing this.

Play Button Errors

The Spotify website was down for a few minutes last night.  It seems we were viewing the errors during that window.  

 

Don't hesitate to let us know if any of you guys experience any issues with the play button.
