New Endpoints (beta): Spotify Connect Web API
Posted April 10th, 2017
Today we’re delighted to announce the beta release of the Spotify Connect Web API – a set of API endpoints for interfacing with Spotify Connect. The endpoints provide control to (with the permission of the user)
- start playback of albums, tracks, and artists
- read the users currently playing track
- skip, seek
- move playback to another Connect device
A full list of all the new endpoints can be found in our Connect Web API reference.
Please note that while we’re very excited to release these endpoints, they are in a beta state. This means that while we encourage you to build with them, a situation may arise where we need to disable some or all of the functionality and/or change how they work without prior notice.
As always, please report any issues via our GitHub issue tracker. Happy hacking!
Update (Nov 2017): We’ve since added something awesome for web developers - Web Playback SDK. You can now do audio playback right in your browser. Check it out!
