How to identify a track's genre in spotify api?

Solved!

How to identify a track's genre in spotify api?

I am referring this particular documentation. "https://developer.spotify.com/documentation/web-api/reference/get-track"
The sample response has the genre of a song. But the "Try it" option does not give me the expected response with "Genre"

Spotify has only genres for artists, not for individual tracks or albums.

The Get Artist(s) endpoint provides genres.

Hi @Ximzend, 

Thanks for the immediate response. I am looking for a track's (song's) genre. An artist can produce multiple genre music. What i am looking for is a song's genre.

Thanks for the information. 
The sample response has the Genre information of a track. If Spotify has updated the Apis then it should consider updating the documentation as well. 

So, can u actually get the genre of a track?
How can u do it?

You can't. Only of the artist(s) of the track.
