Check if app is installed

Check if app is installed

Hello guys!

I'm developing a webapp(nextjs) using Spotify's API and I've been following the design guidelines but I have no idea how to check if the app is installed to show "GET SPOTIFY FREE" instead of "PLAY ON SPOTIFY". Right now I got something like in the attach (play_spotify.png), is that ok? Do I need to change? If so, how?

Thanks in advance

Best regards,
Vitor

I'd like to know the answer to this myself. I'm not aware of any officially documented method for a web app to determine whether Spotify is installed. In the absence of any guidance from Spotify, I think the best we could do would be to link to 'https://open.spotify.com', which in turn would prompt the user to install Spotify if it were not already installed.

Also tried looking into this because of the wording in the documentation you attached. I don't think it's really possible, so I just ended up using the external URL (https://open.spotify.com/...) instead of the URI. Would like to hear from Spotify also, though.
