'Spotify Play Button' allows song embedding on sites Spotify has created their new "Play Button' which will allow bloggers and other sites to embed songs from the company's vast catalog of streaming music.
The widget will let users listen to songs, playlists and even entire albums without having to leave the site their visiting.

Says Spotify: "The Spotify Play Button is a simple yet extremely powerful music widget that makes it easier than ever to deliver all the world's music to fans of your website or blog." In case anyone had any qualms about the new widget and its pricing, the company says its "Totally free. Totally legal. Totally awesome."

If you install the button, you can "simply click on songs on the site, then copy them onto their own site. It will work for people who use Spotify's free service as well as premium users who pay a monthly fee for ad-free, unlimited listening," explains CNN.

Finally, Tumblr announced a partnership with the company, incorporating the button directly into its blogging platform.

I'm not sure I understood this well... So, obviously, you need a spotify account to publish the song but, do visitors who click the button need an account as well in order to listen to it? If the answer is no, well done, I like it. But, if the answer is yes... Shame on them. It's just another lame attempt to increase their user database. :/
