Spotify tips

Access your Spotify in Uber

Just connect your Spotify with the Uber application so that you can make your journey easy.

Share your tracks

Go to the “Share” option by clicking “Three Dots” on the right side of the song and share your track on other applications.

Know the lyrics to your favorite songs

Among the tips and tricks you can use on Spotify, we have the possibility of having lyrics to the songs that are playing with MusiXmatch. While this originally was a standard feature easily available to everyone, now you must follow some quite finicky steps to get it working. First of all, you have to follow this link to the official website of MusiXmatch and then click on the Download for Windows button. That will open up the Microsoft Store app, through which you can install it. When you have MusiXmatch installed, you will then have to create an account on the platform and synchronize it to Spotify in order to have it working. If, after you take all these steps, you still don’t have access to the lyrics, don’t fret! There’s one last thing you can do: close both of the apps and open them up again. Done, now you will have lyrics to your favorite songs on your computer screen!

Search limiting by the release year

One of the most useful tips and tricks you can make use of on Spotify is to search for artists while limiting the search to a specific release year for the songs. In our example down below, we show how we limited our search to exclusively Lana Del Rey songs that were released during 2012 and 2013: As it can be seen on the image, the format for the search is “[artist] year:[startYear-endYear]”, or, as was used in our example, “Lana Del Rey year:2012-2013”. This way, only the tracks and the albums released in those specific years will show up!

Send a playlist to someone via text message

Another very cool minor feature found on Spotify is the possibility of sending private messages with your very own playlists to other users. To do so, you simply have to follow all the steps in the previous item, but at the end, choose the “Send to” option! After that, you will have to select the friend to whom you want to send this playlist, and you can even couple it with a personalized image. It might not be one of the best or most important tricks you can use on Spotify, but you can’t say it isn’t useful.

Share your playlist to your favorite social media platform!

Do you think the playlists you create and curate are of the highest quality, and thus everyone has to know it exists? Well, in that case, I bring you some good news: Spotify lets you share your incredible and amazing musical taste with all your friends and followers, and it is another one of the tips and tricks we will teach you! That is to say that you can share your playlists to several platforms, including Facebook, Messenger, Twitter, Telegram, Tumblr, and Skype directly, or create a Spotify code or a playlist URL to share if the platform you want to post is not on this list. To start the process of sharing, you have to right-click with your mouse on the playlist. After that, you will see a menu with several different options. Now, you have to place your cursor on top of the one that says Share, and you’ll see a submenu that looks like this one: Finally, you have to select the social media platform you want to share to (or copy the link), and the job’s done!

Keeping your session private

Maybe you don’t want all your friends to know exactly what you’re listening to at all times (we all have our guilty pleasures, don’t we) and for that reason, you prefer to keep your profile private for now. Spotify also offers that feature (don’t say I didn’t help you out, huh!)! To do that, all you need to do is to go to the settings (which you can reach by clicking on the arrow on the top by the side of your username), and then check the Start a private session to listen anonymously option. To know whether it is enabled or not, just pay attention to if it’s become green. Another simpler way of doing it is by clicking on the same arrow we talked about and then select the Private session option. Keep in mind that it will only be enabled until you log off Spotify. When you open it up again, the session will once again be public.

Follow friends on Spotify

One of the biggest advantages on Spotify is that you can create a true network of friends by using some of the largest social media platforms. To do so, you need to click on the Find Friends button and connect to your Facebook account. After that, you’ll see a window that looks like the one down below. Now, you can follow all your suggested Facebook friends! If you want to check if anyone new is using Spotify, you can easily click on the same button, and you’ll see the same window. When you follow people, you can see what they’re listening to, and they’ll see what you listen to.

You can listen to the podcasts by searching “Podcasts” in the search bar.
