How to scan spotify code with-without spotify
Before getting to the heart of the tutorial and showing you, in practice, how to scan spotify codeI think it is useful to provide you with some brief information on this sharing method created by the developers of the famous streaming music service.
THE spotify codes generator essentially, are small images, similar to a barcode (or sound wave reproduced on a graph) and can be associated with any content in the Spotify catalog: songs, albums, users, playlists, podcasts and artists.
Therefore, each code identifies the individual elements found in the app and can be used to quickly share them with other users. The same codes can sometimes also be found on flyers, posters and other advertising content.
I must inform you, however, that Spotify codes cannot be assimilated in any way to the classic QR codes, with which you are probably already familiar. This means you can’t scan a Spotify code with the same apps you use to scan QR codes. To do this you will need to use theSpotify official app for mobile devices.
If the latter is not already present on your smartphone or tablet, I invite you to take a look at my dedicated tutorial in which I showed you how to download it. If, on the other hand, you already have the application of the famous streaming service, you are ready to continue and scan the codes you have received/found.

THE Spotify codes that I’ve told you about so far are just one of the many methods that the music streaming service makes available to share the content it hosts. To find out what the others are, just open a song, an album, a playlist or an artist’s profile (from any platform) and press on the relative icon of the three points.
From here, select the item Share and you will have access to all available sharing options. These vary according to the platform in use and the applications installed.
For example, if you press on the entry Copy linkyou can automatically copy the link of the content and share it as you see fit (via email, social network posts, and so on).
If, on the other hand, you tap on the item relating to WhatsApp, you will be able to choose a contact from the list of available ones and share the link of the content directly with the latter. The same goes for Instagram and Facebook Messenger (which also allow you to create stories with the content chosen by Spotify) and other messaging apps
Some social platforms, such as Facebook, if you share a Spotify link via post, even show a small media player with the cover of the chosen element and an audio preview of the same.
