Attribution

To comply with our licensing agreements you must always attribute content from Spotify with either the Spotify logo or icon.

  • The logo is the combination of a wordmark with our icon
  • Our icon is a shorter version of our logo. Only use it if you do not have enough room for the full logo

Logo and icon use must comply with our Logo & Colour Guidelines

Metadata

Track, artist and playlist / album titles

Spotify content must always be presented with the metadata provided by Spotify.

  • The metadata must always be legible every time it is presented.
  • Track name, artist name and album name must always be present every time you present metadata.
  • If you choose to truncate the metadata, you must scroll the text in order to make it legible.

Considerations Your layout should be able to accommodate these average character counts:

  • Playlist/album name: 25 characters.
  • Artist name: 18 characters.
  • Track name: 23 characters.
Artwork
  • Artwork cannot be substituted, you can only use the artwork provided by Spotify.
  • Album and playlist artwork must be kept in its original form, do not animate the artwork in any way.
  • Artwork cannot be distorted in any way - this includes applying overlays, blurring and rounding the corners.
  • It is acceptable to not include any album artwork if screen real estate is limited.
  • Tapping on the artwork must take the user to the Spotify app. If Spotify isn’t installed then the user must be redirected to the store.
