Audio »Spotify

Spotify is a digital music service that gives you access to millions of songs. Think of Spotify as your new music collection. Your library. Only this time your collection is vast: millions of tracks and counting. Spotify comes in all shapes and sizes, available for your PC, Mac, home audio system, and mobile phone. Wherever you go, your music follows you.

Embedding with a URL

To quickly embed music from Spotify, simply copy the embed link from Spotify. You can get the embed link by clicking the three dots on any song, album, or artist in Spotify and selecting Copy Song Link or Copy Spotify URI.


Once you have the embed link paste it as plaintext by clicking Paste as text icon:


Once pasted, it should look like either of the below links:


Update your post/page and we take care of the rest! The embed will look something like this.

Embedding with a shortcode

You can also embed music from Spotify using a shortcode. First you need to get the Spotify embed link by clicking the three dots on any song, album, or artist in Spotify and selecting Copy Song Link or Copy Spotify URI.


Then create a shortcode using the format below. Be sure to replace the URL listed here with the URL of your audio, and the code is on a line by itself. Do not include spaces after the opening bracket or before the closing one.

Embedding a playlist

You can also embed a Spotify playlist using the same shortcode.

On the playlist, click on the three dots below the green Play button. In the opened menu, select “Copy Playlist link” option to copy the play list link to the clipboard.



You can embed the playlist into a page, post or text widget by adding the playlist link to the shortcode as following:

  • Make sure the Spotify URL is not hyperlinked. If the URL is shown in your theme’s link color (as the second line in the screenshot below), then it is hyperlinked. Select the link and click the Remove icon to remove it.
    Once the URL is unlinked, you will see the link text in black.
  • Make sure to place the Spotify URL or shortcode on its own line. This means there should be no character or whitespace before or after the URL/shortcode.
  • If the embed still isn’t working, make sure you also check our guide to troubleshoot embed links and shortcodes.
