Spotify 0.2.6

We released a new version of Spotify yesterday. Some bugs were fixed and a new linking mode was introduced. It is now possible to link to positions in tracks, such as Jimi Hendrix’s famous guitar solo in Little Wing. If you want to create such a link, just append a hash mark followed by the position to the Spotify URI, like this: spotify:track:0x6sp8GeimTiAUVGkp3ZGv#1:40.

Other changes include:

  • User settings can be changed.
  • We mark all collaborative playlist (including your own) with a padlock icon.
  • Spotify for Windows can upload crash reports.

Fixed bugs include:

  • A crash bug that was triggered by playlist deletion.
  • The way Spotify handles positions in lists has been changed. This should solve some of the bugs related to modifying playlists.
  • Spotify now behaves much better on two screens.

We also allow under-age users to sign up for Spotify if they have their guardian’s consent.


  1. not to be picky or anything, but the above text in your blog post is not possible to play due to the strange thingy with the x after the 0 (just after track:), it works if I delete the x n re-enter it.

    like so (that’s now an x, not a multiplication sign =)

  2. […]  Spotify, a private beta, next-generation, celestial jukebox has pushed out a new feature.  You can now link directly to a time offset within a song.  Just append the time offset to the url.  For example, here’s a link directly to my favorite short organ solo: spotify:track:5ilQibGPcaQvy8jf7OQI5H#2:30 […]

  3. @ands: It’s the horrible software WordPress which translates stuff like “0x6” into “0(char 215)6” – very annoying. For example your corrected link turned out just as screwed-up. So we can’t really help it. However, the text “guitar solo” is linked to that URI, thus clicking it will take you there.
