Although not supporting the customizable Spotify Embed experience, some social media websites support rich content when you post a Spotify link on your timeline/profile. You can get a link or share directly from the Spotify Desktop Client or Spotify Web Player. The following social media websites are supported: Facebook, Messenger, Twitter Telegram, Skype and Tumblr.
Here’s an example on how you can get a link or share directly from the player:
In your SquareSpace website create a new page or edit an existing one.
- In the page editor, click an Insert point.

Copy-and-paste the code from the Follow Button or Spotify Embed generator into the HTML/embed code frame.

In your Tumblr Dashboard create a new text post or edit an existing one.
- From the Settings menu, either select Text editor: HTML or in the toolbar, click the html link.
- Copy the code from the Follow Button or Spotify Embed generator and paste into the main window.

- Sometimes the Play Button takes a few seconds to appear. If nothing seems to happen, re-open your post in the Edit view and save it again without modifying it.
- You can also drop Spotify Open links into Tumblr. Find sharing links in the Spotify players that enable you to post a playlist on your connected Tumblr account. See image in the Social Media section.
