Spotify introduces embeddable Play button

Streaming giants Spotify have now introduced the Spotify Play button, a way of integrating Spotify content within blogs, websites and social networks.

In many ways, it’s surprisingly that this hasn’t happened already – it already seems like a long, long time ago that you couldn’t embed content from YouTube, for instance. Which isn’t to say that Spotify’s Play Button is a direct comparison – whereas if you embed audio from YouTube or Soundcloud, it’s (in theory) then available for everybody to hear, using Spotify’s Play Button still requires you to have Spotify installed and open on your desktop. But it’s still a start, right?
