How To Embed A Spotify Playlist In A Blog Post

I’ve been asked a few times about how I embed my Spotify playlists into my blog posts. It’s a simple task though it doesn’t translate well over text. I figured the best way to answer everyone’s questions is write up a tutorial on the blog! Just as a note: This is how you embed Spotify in WordPress, though I can imagine other blog services would be pretty similar.

STEP 1: Open the Spotify Application on your computer.

STEP 2: Click on the playlist you want to embed.

STEP 3: Click on the ‘More’ button, it looks like three dots and is next to the green ‘Play’ button.

STEP 4: The ‘More’ button will bring up a drop down menu. On that menu click the ‘Copy Embed Code’ option.

STEP 5: Open your blog post draft in WordPress and click the ‘Text’ tab.

 

STEP 6: Right click and paste the embed code into the text space. It’ll look like code while you’re looking at it in ‘Text’ but as soon as you click back to ‘Visual’ it’ll appear as a cute little playlist on your blog post!
