Spotify has made it easier than ever to share your favorite music and podcasts with others.
That’s because it has introduced Promo Cards, a new feature that anyone can use to create personalized assets to share on social media.
What Are Spotify Promo Cards?
Promo Cards is a new Spotify feature primarily targeted at artists and creators, though it can easily be used by anyone.
Promo Cards are easily customizable graphics that you can share on social media to promote an artist, their songs, their album, or when they have been featured on a popular playlist.
Some eligible playlists include African Heat, Hot Country, Just Good Music, Pop Rising, Today’s Top Hits, and Viva Latino.
You can also create a Promo Card for a podcast show or episode. Spotify continues to make a push into the podcast world, as shown by features like the podcast playlists to aid discover.
These Promo Cards can be shared on places like Twitter and Instagram because the creation tool allows you to easily change the size of the graphic.
How Do I Create Spotify Promo Cards?
To create a graphic of your own, just head to the special Promo Cards website.
The site requires no login and is available in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and German.
First, select whether you want to create a Promo Card for an artist or podcaster. If you choose the former, you can switch between a specific artist, album, or song. For the latter, you can choose between a show or episode.
Once selected, input your search term in the field and click the Search button to begin the process.
On the next screen, confirm your selection on the right-hand pane and click Customize.
First, change the background color of the graphic (from a small preset of choices generated to complement the artist or album artwork).
Second, switch to the Size tab to choose between Portrait, Landscape, or Square.
When you’re happy with your customizations, click Share. From here you can download the static image, copy the URL, and share directly to Twitter and Facebook.
Listen to Spotify With Friends
With Promo Cards, it’s now easier than ever to share your love of artists and podcasters with the world.
However, you can take this one step further by using Spotify’s Group Session feature. This allows you to listen to Spotify with friends and family online, even when you’re not in the same place.
