Looking for a way to post a tweet to Twitter everytime I play a spotify song. I currently have this configured in IFTTT, but would like to use Zapier for all automations going forward. Didn’t see a trigger for Spotify in Zapier, so wondering if anyone had come across an approach for this.

Thanks so much!

Hi @phi 

The Spotify Zap app integration has these available triggers:

Thank you! That doesn’t have anything where a new track is being played trigger (like IFTTT) so looking for a way to not use IFTTT anymore and move over to Zapier.

You may have to explore using the Spotify API: https://developer.spotify.com/documentation/web-api/

App APIs can be used in Zaps with the Webhooks app as an action step: https://zapier.com/apps/webhook/integrations

Thank you! I will definitely have a look into that. Not sure if I’ll be able to setup an oauth with webhook but will deifnitely give it a go.

Hey @phi!

I’ve just spotted that we’ve got an existing feature request to trigger a Zap when a new track is played so I’ve added your vote for that. I can’t make any promises as to when that would be implemented but we’ll be sure to send you a notification by email as soon as that trigger is available. :)

AWESOME!! This would be awesome, it’s the last automation I have over at IFTTT that I couldn’t move to Zapier. Thinking in the meantime of using google app scripts to connect to spotify and log a sheet with all songs I play, and then post that to twitter from Zapier. But that would be so much better.

Hi all! 👋

Just popping by with a quick update to share that the feature request has now been implemented. In case you missed the email notification that was sent, here’s the important information from it:

“Great news! An updated Spotify version has been released with that functionality. Note that this polling trigger triggers when any track finishes playing. You'll need to use a Filter step to only trigger when particular song/s plays. In order to get access to this new functionality, you’ll need to update your Spotify Zap steps, or create new Zaps. If updating a step, you can now do that in-line using the Update button located in the App & event sub-page of your Spotify step in the Zap Editor. See more details here.

Please do reach back out in the Community here if you run into any issues with that New Played Track trigger. In the meantime, happy Zapping! ⚡
