The support group for's free Spotify app, available here.

With the new Spotify desktop software 1.0.1. being rolled out now, the for Spotify app will no longer work in this version. See this pinned thread for more information and possible workarounds.
This is the official support group for's Spotify app which you can either directly install for free from here or search in the Spotify desktop client with their App Finder. See also the developer blog and the Spotify news blog as well as the video below describing this app. For general questions about Spotify you can also check their community forums which are open for all users.

Some preliminary remarks:
You do not need this app for scrobbling from Spotify, as the Spotify desktop client has a native scrobbler (check "Edit" -> "Preferences") which also caches the scrobbles in case the submissions server is not available.

So you do not need the scrobbler either if you want to scrobble from Spotify, as the two clients are not directly connected and work independently from each other. But it can show you the wiki infos of the playing track like this app in the "Now Playing" tab when using both clients at the same time. The permanent info "Enable scrobbling by getting the for Spotify app" on top of the new scrobbler GUI includes an internal Spotify link. This is a shortcut to the login screen of the app where you can fill in your details which automatically copies them to the Preferences of the Spotify desktop software as well, but it does not mean that the app is doing the scrobbling now.

The Spotify apps for iOS, Android and Windows Phone as well as the web player for your browser can also scrobble to, but do not feature a cache, so you lose your scrobbles if the connection to the server is not available. Furthermore they cannot use this or other external apps.

How do you choose what to play next when you could listen to anything? Use for Spotify and find out in seconds. Get recommendations and playlists based on the music you listen to. Whether you're new to or a long-time scrobbler with dozens of loved tracks, you’ll get great recommendations straight away. Listen on demand to music we think you’ll love based on the music you play. What’s more, you can build playlists with just one click and effortlessly share them with friends on Spotify, Facebook or Twitter.

* Recommended albums based on the music you listen to, either individually or in one large playlist of 12 albums per page (5 recommendation pages max.).
* Dismiss recommendations by hovering the album cover and clicking on the Delete icon in the upper right corner, see picture above.
* Instant access to your favourite albums from the last three months, either individually or in an overall playlist.
* Your 50 recently loved tracks (if available on Spotify) instantly or saved as a playlist, see the "Overview" tab.
* Your recently listened tracks instantly or saved as a playlist, see the "Overview" tab.
* Rich artist information and images from wikis while listening in the "Now Playing" tab.
* Seamless integration with new and existing profiles, e.g. love new tracks from the app in the "Now Playing" tab.
* Similar Tracks playlists created from the current track in the "Now Playing" tab or from any other track in a Spotify list by drag&drop onto the app icon.

So if you’re wondering what to listen to next, get the app for Spotify now.

    That's interesting, so it may be necessary to do that once with IE which may set an internal general Windows internet option which all other Windows browsers use then. The newer Spotify desktop clients do not have an option anymore for opening links in the client or the web player, only their current web player still has one.

    Actually never mind, I got it working on Internet Explorer and now Firefox has decided to follow suit. Bloody computers :D

    I have the same problem as Negative47 and can't find anything on Firefox that lets me edit the Spotify settings. I try it with the desktop app open, even with a song playing and every time it goes straight to the web player even though my Spotify settings tell it not to. No matter what I try (including reinstalling Spotify) it just doesn't work as I really hate the web player so effectively this service is lost to me if there's no fix.

    You should already have the desktop client loaded in the background and check if your browser knows what to do with links, e.g. in Firefox it would be mentioned on this settings page: about:preferences#applications

    See the pinned thread about the future of for Spotify which has ended with their new desktop version 1.0.x. Scrobbling is still possible with it though, check its Preferences.

    I cannot find the app on Spotify desktop anymore. I just registered here after I deleted my old account and when they asked how I wanted to scrobble, I clicked Spotify but Spotify app only seemed to find a page that doesn't exist.

    That feature in the scrobbler was realised through their now deprecated API, see this thread for more info and a workaround.

    Ok, the new Spotify update is screwing up my scrobbling. Sometimes the songs show up in the Scrobbles section on, but nothing EVER shows up in the Now Playing part. I deleted Spotify and reinstalled it. The old version of Spotify works fine with, but when I implemented the update again, it started showing nothing in the Now Playing section and again, the scrobbling is erratic. Is this a Spotify thing or a thing and how does it get fixed??

    If you are asking about scrobbling with the Spotify iOS app, then the answer is yes, but it cannot cache scrobbles in offline mode, so you have to be online all the time to scrobble your Spotify tracks to

    Led Zeppelin's Physical Graffiti (Deluxe Edition) arrived on Spotify yesterday, as usual with additional unreleased mixes.

    Does it scrobble? Don't know, but interesting nevertheless, as Spotify is not present on Xbox One yet:

    No, Spotify tags for artists, albums and tracks are not editable anywhere directly, you can only tell them about wrong names in their support forums. You could also suggest corrections on each track page, but this would be a huge task.

    Can I change the music name (ID3)? I hate when I scrobble any song and there's "[2002 Remix blablabla]"

    See the pinned Known Issues thread with a workaround. Using the direct export of all your loved tracks to a TSV file and converting it with Ivy usually is the better way anyhow.

    The 'add loved tracks as playlist' button in the Last fm Spotify app isn't working.
