how to create and scan Spotify code

If you enjoy music as much as I do, then you are going to love this new service from Spotify that lets you scan a barcode and see exactly which songs are playing at that bar.

Scanning Spotify QR codes is simple and only takes about 3 minutes. You will need to scan the Spotify code in the Spotify app (if you haven’t already) and you will be taken directly to the artists page. If you have a Spotify Premium subscription, you can listen to this artist’s songs without ads or limitations. If you don’t have a premium subscription, you will have access to the songs in a limited quality setting.

You may choose to purchase the song directly from the Spotify app, or you may choose to play the song in the background and get redirected to a third party website where you can pay for the song. For example, when you play the song, it will be streamed to your device, but when you click the back button to go to your home screen, you will be taken to this website.

What Is a Spotify QR Code?

Spotify are one of the world’s largest streaming music platforms, and recently launched a new tool called QR Code (a.k.a QR code).

In other words, you can give people a direct link to something fun, amazing, or free simply by scanning a simple, quick code with their smartphones. The best part is that this barcode can be printed on business cards, put up on a billboard, and anywhere else you want to share some exclusive offers!
