App authorization


App authorization


Does anyone know how to apply to get app authorization and then how to use it to authenticate?  My app needs to be able to download the names of songs when a user gives me a shared playlist url/link.  Since the shared playlist link is public, I really want to avoid asking the user to oauth login using their spotify credentials.

Hey there!

There's a bit more information about this here: You should be able to use the client-credentials authorization flow for this. Let me know how if that helps here!

Have a good one,
