Developers Beware

September 2, 2016 4:12 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

Not happy with song selections offered by Soundcloud, I recently began investigating into Spotify Web API.

I am so glad that I did not invest any time before realizing that Spotify Web API does not allow full length streaming of songs.

The Spotify Web API only allows 30 seconds streaming of any song. However, Spotify’s API page doesn’t make this very clear and unfortunately, other developers have fallen prey.

There are developers who have been waiting for years wanting Spotify to offer full length streaming.

If Spotify hasn’t implemented full streaming for years, I sure won’t hold out my hope thinking this will be implemented in the future.
