Spotify codes make it easy to share your favorite songs and other items on Spotify. We’ll show you how to create and scan this code on your Windows, Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Android devices.
What is Spotify Code?
Spotify code is machine readable code in an image. It’s like a QR code you already know. You can’t read this code, but the Spotify app on your iPhone, iPad, or Android phone can.
When a user scans this code from their phone, Spotify takes them to the item that contains the code.
You can create this code for your spotty songs, albums, artists, playlists, podcasts and even your profile. Both free and premium users can create this code.
Note: These guidelines may vary slightly depending on your platform and app version.
