djctl + Spotify Codes 💘

Posted July 13, 2022 by Matt Hite ‐ 1 min read

Spotify Codes are a great way to visually share links to tracks or playlists with other Spotify users. I’m excited to announce that djctl can now automatically generate and display the Spotify Code of the currently playing track in your stream overlay. Users can touch the camera icon in the search bar of the Spotify mobile app, point it at the Spotify Code image in your stream overlay display, and quickly save it to their collection or personal playlist.

See the Spotify section of the CLI reference guide for more information on configuring this feature.

Please note that you will need a djctl license and Spotify Premium account in order to use this feature.

Spotify Codes
Spotify Codes are displayed under album art using the example SliderSpotify theme. Try scanning the code from the screenshot with your Spotify mobile app!
