Go back to the list of Blocks

With the Spotify Embed block, you can embed tracks, podcasts, playlists & albums into your posts and pages. You need a Spotify account to be able to listen to entire tracks. For users who are not logged in on their Spotify account, the Spotify Play button embed plays a 30-second long audio preview, and then the users are prompted to either login or to sign up. You don’t need a Spotify account to embed a track, podcast, playlist or album.
