Add Spotify Follow buttons to your pages so your web visitors can follow you, your favorite artists, or any Spotify profile. It’s great for artists who want to build a fan base, businesses who want to raise their Spotify profiles, and music lovers who just want to share their tastes!

By using the Spotify Tools, you accept our Developer Terms.

Putting Follow buttons on your website can significantly increase the number of people who follow your (or your artists’) Spotify profile. Our profile pages are a great place to showcase popular tracks, albums and playlists. Here is a typical Spotify profile, for the artist Avicii:

When the user clicks

When visitors to your website who are logged in to Spotify click a Follow button, the artist or user is added to the profiles they are following.

  • If your visitor does not have a Spotify account, they will be asked if they wish to create one (either directly or through Facebook).
  • If they do have a Spotify account, but they are not logged in, they will be prompted to do so (either directly or through Facebook).

Terms of Use

We need to protect users, content providers, the Spotify trademarks, our software and the Spotify service while at the same time enabling you to widely use the Spotify Widgets. We therefore require you to comply with our Spotify Widget Terms of Use.

Want to do this programatically?

You can use the Spotify Web API for performing Follow actions. Check out the Follow Endpoints.

You can find instructions on how to add our widgets to popular sites on Adding widgets to websites.

Customizing the design

Is there any way of customizing the design of the Follow Button? E.g. color, typography…

Currently there is no way no change the design of the follow button, other than switching between the light and dark themes. Using the Follow Endpoints you can implement a custom version of the button.

Are there localized versions of the follow button in languages other than English?

No, the follow button isn’t localized and there are no short-term plans of localizing it.

Controlling through Javascript

Is there a JS SDK for the follow button? Can I detect whether someone is following a user/artist or clicks the follow button?

The follow button doesn’t have any observable events, nor does it listen for any. Following/unfollowing can only be triggered by the user clicking the button.

Following playlists

Can I follow a playlist instead of a user or artist?

The follow button doesn’t support following a playlist as of yet. However, using the endpoint for following a playlist it is possible for anyone to build a custom button to follow a certain playlist. You can see an example on this JSFiddle, just note that if you want to use it on your website you will need to register your own application on My Applications and change how the proxy JSFiddle sends the access token.
