Today Spotify has launched its new Play Button, which allows users to listen to content all over the web and embed tracks and playlists easier to blogs and social networks.
The new Spotify Play Button is a music widget that will allow users to share and discover music even more easily across blogging platforms, websites and social networks.
Gustav Söderström, chief product officer at Spotify, said:
“Today we’re giving every blogger and web editor the ability to light up the internet with music.
“Adding a personalised soundtrack to your website or blog has never been this easy.
“You want to give your fans access to any song, album or playlist of your choosing and in its entirety, while ensuring people stay glued to your site. The Spotify Play Button does all of this for free, while making sure artists get paid for every play.”
Those who use Tumblr get enhanced Spotify Play Button functionality, with the widget integrated into the dashboard, letting you search for the song you want to include directly from Tumblr and embed it instantly.
Those who aren’t Tumblr users can also easily add the Spotify Play Button to their websites. Simply grab the URL for the track, album or playlist you’re looking to share, and head over to the Spotify developer website to get the embed link.
