Spotify error with play and pause button

Hey community I’m triying to add two buttons to play and pause from spotify but I’m getting this error:

You don’t have permissions to take this action in Spotify everything is setup in Coda but I don’t know what is the error. Can someone help me?

Hi Steve! Are you able to share your doc here with support access for us to take a look?

Hi @Coda_Zac I think is a general error, I created a new doc only with the play button and happens the same thing. Also a community champion is having the same issue.

Yes, that would be me :innocent: !


Following up, could you confirm if you have Spotify Premium? It looks like Spotify made a change here requiring you to have Spotify Premium to use this feature.

I don’t have a Premium Spotify account :upside_down_face:

And this would explain things :blush: : Especially why all the tracks I gather from Spotify return false in the Is Playable checkbox.

I also don’t have any premium account :confused:

I’m not home today so I can’t really follow up on this at the moment :confused:!

Even though it seems like Spotify as a business has closed some loopholes here :no_mouth:

I mean, free accounts can access anything they want… as long as they’re listening to pubs and announces once in a while as YouTube does :confused:.

If they changed their API (on Spotify’s side) to reflect this, there’s nothing much Coda can’t do here :face_with_diagonal_mouth:.

At least, well, we all seem to know what has gone wrong here, so Coda can adapt their documentation and reflect that change from Spotify’s side :blush:.

Not a big consolation here, I know :wink:. But really helpful to all the free users of Spotify who might face the same troubles :blush:.
