Spicing up your Notion workspace with Spotify content can be both fun and inspiring. Whether you're embedding a single song, a full playlist, or an entire album, the process is straightforward. Here's how you can do it.

How to Add a Spotify Song, Playlist, Artist, or Album to Notion

1. Open Spotify on Your Desktop

Start by launching Spotify and finding the song, playlist, artist, or album you want to embed.

2. Get the Embed Code

Click on the three dots icon next to the item you've chosen.

Select 'Share' and then click on the 'Embed' tab. This will bring up the embed settings.

In the embed settings, adjust the color, size, and width of the widget to fit your Notion page layout.

Ensure the 'Show code' option is selected, then click 'COPY' to copy the embed code to your clipboard.

Reasons for Notion Spotify Embed Not Working

Occasionally, you might encounter issues when trying to embed Spotify content into Notion. Understanding the common reasons why this feature might not work as expected can help you troubleshoot and resolve the problem. Here are some potential reasons:

  1. Incorrect Embed Code: Ensure that you've copied the correct embed code from Spotify. Missing a part of the code or copying it incorrectly can result in the embed not working.
  2. Not Logged into Spotify: For the Spotify embed to function properly in Notion, you need to be logged into your Spotify account. If you're not logged in, the content won't play.
  3. Internet Connection Issues: A weak or unstable internet connection can prevent the Spotify embed from loading correctly in Notion.
  4. Privacy Settings: Check the privacy settings of your Spotify content. If a playlist or track is set to private, it may not embed correctly in Notion.


Why Is My Spotify Only Playing 30 Seconds Previews of a Song?

It seems this limitation exists because the embed functionality in Notion does not support logging into your Spotify account, which is necessary for accessing full tracks.

Spotify embeds in Notion are limited to previews for users who aren't logged into a Spotify account within the embed itself. Since Notion's embed feature doesn't yet support account log-ins for Spotify, even Spotify Premium users will only hear previews.

Until Notion introduces a feature allowing users to link their Spotify accounts, or until Spotify changes its policy regarding embeds, full tracks cannot be played directly within Notion.

Can You Add Music to Notion?

Yes, you can add audio files to your Notion pages. To do this, simply type /audio in Notion to create an audio block. This block allows you to upload audio files directly to your page, providing a convenient way to incorporate music or other audio elements into your Notion workspace.
