Getting Other Users' Top Artists/Top Tracks

Visitor

It is possible to access the top tracks/artists of another user? I know authorization is required but how would that work for a separate user? For example, if I wanted to create a web app that compared my top tracks to my friends top tracks, is there a way to seamlessly do that without a completely separate login auth request to my friend? If they are on my followers list could I access that info?

Hey @basketball2523, I might be able to jump in here!

 

Right now, there's no endpoint for requesting this information. The top tracks/artist of another user are not publicly available on someone's profile. You can only request the information of the current authenticated user with this endpoint: https://developer.spotify.com/documentation/web-api/reference/personalization/get-users-top-artists-....

 

If this is something you'd like to see, I recommend creating a new idea on the Spotify Community. That way, Spotify can keep track of it. 

 

Let me know if you have any questions!

 

Stay safe and take care!
