Missing previewURL

Missing previewURL

Hey folks, we didn't get this answered so I'm posting it again. Is there a reason why so many tracks are missing previewURL? We are not getting previewURL for like 70% of the songs.

 

For example, adding the "Happier than Ever" song by Billie Eillish and playing the 30 second preview works on Tinder. But when I add this song to our app, it doesn't play the preview and just goes into the Spotify app.

 

How can we solve this?

Hey there, help's here!

There can be several reasons why a previewURL might be missing. This can be due to market restrictions or due to account specific settings (explicit music).

Could you try to see if the track is relinked from another track (https://developer.spotify.com/documentation/general/guides/track-relinking-guide/) and if the original track/linked track has a previewURL?

Let me know how you get on!

Have a great day,
