Spotify launches expanded Web API
Posted on 18-Jun-2014 12:01 | Tags Filed under: News



Developers can now build richer web apps based on Spotify, a digital music service that gives consumers on-demand access to over 20 million tracks.

The new version of the Spotify Web API lets developers put everything from album art to music previews into third-party web apps, with a brand new ability to create real Spotify playlists for end users.

Developers, marketers, ad agencies, music hacking gurus, product managers, design firms, and anyone else who wants to build a Spotify web app to further their goals now have a new tool at their disposal, with more multimedia and baked-in smarts than ever before.

Those creating new apps also get the deep musical intelligence of The Echo Nest, a music intelligence platform company that provides music services to developers and media companies. Spotify worked to integrate the two APIs.

The new web API lets developers retrieve rich metadata including extensive track, album and artist details from the Spotify catalog, including cover art and 30 second track previews. Also, with a user's permission, developers can now access user profile information including playlists, display name, image, country, email, external URL, and subscriber status.

The company said Spotify and subsidiary The Echo Nest are more committed to the developer community than ever, with a newly combined platform that makes it simpler to provide new music experiences on the web.
