If you’re tired of listening to those annoying but witty Spotify ads between your songs, we’re afraid getting a premium Spotify connection is your one and only escape route. However, if you’re tired of dealing with so many apps everywhere, be it your smartphone, laptop or PC, then you don’t have to worry at all. There is no need to download the Spotify app to listen to your playlist when you can use the Spotify Web Player instead. All you need is access to a good internet connection and web browser, and you’re ready to dive into the realms of your favourite music.
How to Access The Spotify Web Player
Step 1: The Spotify Web player will easily make you forget the need to download its app. Just open your web browser and go to Spotify’s website https://open.spotify.com/. If you already have an account on Spotify, then you can log into it via the Login button on the top right corner of its web interface. If not, then you would need to sign up using the Sign Up button on the left of the Login button on the top right corner, or via the Sign Up Free option at the bottom of the interface, as shown below.
Step 2: You are provided with various options for logging in or signing up into the platform. All you need to do is just select the required means, fill in your details accordingly and click on the Log In/ Sign Up button at the bottom.
How To Use All Its Features
Once logged in, you enter the Spotify web player’s interface, which, if you are a Spotify desktop app user, would find no different from it. If you were previously playing any song on Spotify’s app, it would be displayed on the ribbon at the bottom as highlighted below, so that you can continue playing songs right from where you left off.
In the centre are displayed all the different variations and combinations of playlists, albums, songs, or podcasts that may be trending in your region, or is customized by Spotify especially according to your taste in music, or includes those which you have recently played. You can listen to your liked songs, those from your favourite genre of music, from your favourite movie album or artist, or you can select a playlist suggested by Spotify based on your recent listening or your liking. You can also discover new music or listen to the latest releases if you like.
If you like a song, you can tap on the heart icon against that song to add it to your Liked songs playlist. If you like a whole album or a playlist, you can tap on the heart icon for that playlist/album to add it to your list of favourites. For adding an artist to your list of favourite artists, just visit the artist’s page on Spotify by using the search box on the left of the interface, and click on the heart button. The same is the procedure for adding a podcast to your favourites. You can access all those artists, albums, playlists or podcasts that you’ve marked as your favourite through their respective tabs provided within the Your Library option on the left side of the interface. You can also create your own playlist via the Create Playlist option provided again, on the left-hand side of the interface.
If you’re a Spotify Premium user, you have the added benefit of listening to your favourite music non-stop, without being bothered by those cringy ads. Spotify also prepares you a playlist at the end of every year (presented by Spotify Wrapped) that consists of all your favourite songs which you listened to the most in a year. It even tells you your overall stats related to your account for every year, which includes your most played song, the number of times you replayed it the whole year, the genre of music or the artist that you played the maximum number of songs from, and much more.
