Spotify is the most used application in Spain for streaming music. The application has left us these months with functions such as searching songs by lyrics or the possibility of changing the cover photo in the playlists you have created. There are times that you want to share some songs that you have discovered with your friends, who have a similar taste, for example.

In Spotify we find various ways of sharing music, being able to send it in messaging apps or social networks. In addition, the application has its own codes, which also allow us to share music (songs, albums or artists) with another person. We show you how they work.

These Spotify codes are inspired by QR codes, because a code is generated on the screen, which another person will be able to scan with their phone so that at that moment the song, album or artist page that you have shared is opened. This will allow this person to start listening to music directly on their device. This option is possible only on the PC, that is, we can only share that code on the screen from the PC, following these steps:

  1. Open Spotify on your PC.
  2. Find the song, album, or artist you want to share.
  3. Click on the icon with the three ellipsis on the right.
  4. Click on Share.
  5. Select Spotify Code.
  6. A code will be displayed on the screen.
  7. Wait for the other person to scan that code with their mobile.

So you will already have access to music that you wanted to share, because it will open directly in your application on Android. It is a simple method of sharing songs or artists, inspired by the operation of QR codes, so popular today.
