How Do I Get a Spotify Code?

Spotify codes are a great way to share music, podcasts and more with friends and family. With a simple scan of a code, you can instantly share songs and albums with anyone, no matter where they are in the world.

The Spotify code system works by generating a unique code for each track or album that is linked to the URL of the content. Once it has been generated, all you have to do is scan it using the Spotify app and it will take you directly to that piece of content.

So how do you get your hands on one of these codes? The first step is to open up the Spotify app on your smartphone or tablet.

Once inside, locate the track or album you would like to generate a code for and tap on it. You should then see an option appear at the bottom of your screen which says ‘Get Code’; this is what you need to tap in order to generate a code.

Once activated, a unique Spotify code will be generated for that track or album; this will be displayed as either an image or text-based code depending on which version of the app you are using. To share this code with others, simply tap ‘Share’ and select how you would like to send it – either via SMS, email or social media.

You can also generate codes without having to open up the Spotify app; simply go onto, enter the name of an artist, song or album into the search bar and select ‘Generate Code’. This will produce an image-based Spotify code that can be easily shared with others.


In conclusion, getting your hands on a Spotify code is easy; simply open up the app and locate the track or album you want to generate one for before tapping ‘Get Code’. Alternatively, go onto and search for your desired content before selecting ‘Generate Code’.
