Called the Spotify Code, this sharing support can simplify the search process that users need to do because they can play certain content instantly.
For those of you who have never heard of or even used it, here is more information about legacy support for sharing audio content from the Spotify service.
What is the Spotify Code?
Inspiring Snapchat’s AR Bar feature, Spotify Code launched with the aim of making it easier for users to find content on the service by simply scanning a barcode.
You can enjoy songs, listen to podcasts, or play playlists directly without bothering to find them first with the presence of this Spotify Code support.
Compared to sharing support in the link format, Spotify Code can also work more effectively when content creators promote content physically through posters, flyers, and stickers because users don’t have to type anything.
What makes it even more attractive, not only content owners can use it. You as a regular connoisseur of the Spotify service can also take advantage of this support to share interesting songs or podcasts with other people.
In addition, users can use this feature very easily via cellphone or computer as the steps in the following explanation.
How to Get a Spotify Code
Through the Spotify Application on Mobile
- Open the Spotify application
- Find and play the song, podcast or playlist that you want to share
- Click the Menu (dot icon) in the upper right corner of the screen
- Spotify Code is below the content cover image
- Use the screenshot feature to save it
Mobile phones in general have a screenshot feature that can be activated by simultaneously pressing the physical volume button (up or down) and power for a few moments. You can find a way according to the device used.
After successful, the screenshot will appear in the mobile gallery. You can immediately share it as needed, such as printing it on a sticker or uploading it as a social media status.
Apart from the steps above, you can also get Spotify Code from songs to playlists via your computer. It’s just that you need to use a slightly different method for singly playlists and songs (podcasts).
Via the Spotify application on a computer

These steps will automatically display the Spotify Code of the content to be shared. Just like cellphones, you can also use the computer screen capture feature to save them.
Submitting the screenshot will share your favorite song or podcast. However, it would be better if you edit it first, like cutting it to the size of the cover image.
Especially for promotional purposes, of course this is very necessary. Besides looking more attractive, you can place the Spotify Code neatly in the place you want.
In order to support a number of promotional cases that require a higher image resolution (as printed on billboards), Spotify interestingly also provides a Spotifycodes.com page.
On this special page, users can download a larger Spotify Code image. Not only that, users can also customize the barcode color, change the background color, and choose the type of file that they want to save.

Unfortunately the Spotify Code scanner feature is now only available specifically for mobile applications. You won’t find the camera button if you use a computer application.
In addition, Spotify premium membership is required if you want to play a song from a certain barcode. Because if not, the music application will play songs randomly from the playlist.
