Spotify coming soon to a website near you
Yesterday Spotify announced the introduction of their own global play button. Essentially it allows any website to embed a Spotify playlist directly on their own site.
Using the play button generator is incredibly simple. All you need is your Spotify playlist url and it generates the html for an iframe for you to copy and paste.
Unfortunately the player is not standalone, so a Spotify account is required and the music does not play through the browser, but via the Spotify application itself.
Clearly this is a drive for Spotify to encourage more user sign-ups. Either way it’s certainly going to improve the quality of many music blogs across the ’net. Now they can link to a reputable stream of the music, instead of an illegally uploaded YouTube video as often is the case.
Below is a playlist of a selection of some of the music that’s been played in the Kyan office over the last few days.
