We’re happy to announce three new things that you can embed into your site!
Embed music from Spotify by right-clicking any song, album, or artist in Spotify and selecting “Copy HTTP Link” or “Copy Spotify URI”:
Then paste that into your post editor, making sure that it’s located on its own line all by itself. You’ll end up with something like this when you view your post:
If you’re an Rdio user, you can embed music from them too. Copy the URL from your address bar when looking at a track, artist, or playlist and paste that into your post editor. Here are a few examples:
If you use the Mac application for Rdio you can copy URLs from there as well. If you click the “Share” button you’ll see a URL to copy right at the top. Paste that in to your post editor and you’re all set.
We’re big fans of the code repository website GitHub here at Automattic and many of us use their Gist code snippets website. While we already have a cool way to embed code into your site, we realize many of you want to post Gist-hosted snippets too so starting today you can. Again, just copy/paste the URL out of your address bar onto its own line in the post editor.
Thanks Alex, it works great! As an old WordPresser I like it! Well done!

A nice feature, man! Do not wait to start using it.
Every day is more rewarding in the WordPress blogging!
Congratulations, Alex! Nice work!

Great stuff, this should brighten my blog up, kind regards

Awesome! :) Will use the Spotify one! :)
Sweet. Love the Spotify addition.
Any idea how this plays out with the Intellectual Property laws? For instance, does Spotify carry the burden of paying that when you embed their stuff on your site or are you still on the hook for it?
hey thank you this is so good post
Great! Does it work for Spotify playlists as well as for tracks and albums?
What an awesome new feature–thanks!
On the Spotify Free Option, you are limited to listening to one song five times in a month . So if the Spotify link is listened to five times in one month, then presumably the link will no longer work, until the next month ?
It didn’t quite work with the method provided (copy spotify url and paste as picture indicates), but snatching the real URL and posting — voila! Brilliant. And, thanks for the feature. :)
Does this work if I put it on my sidebar or a widget? I’m using the Bueno template and would like to have a playlist static on the side,

Great feature! :D it’s not working for me though :(
This is AWESOME!
Awesome! Definitely using this to share music I work out to.
Well, instead of single songs only, most of us would like to post full playlists. What about?

This is cool – but you need to remove formatting on the code in order for it to work – I have now gone back through my site and added it to all my posts – excellent!

I take it there’s no way of text wrapping around the player, or of embedding the compact, small-artwork version, as seen on Pitchfork reviews e.g. http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/16534-blunderbuss/. The problem with the embedding on WordPress.com as is, is that the player is a bit obtrusive, attracting the reader’s attention rather than the text.
Tried to download Spotify and it was blocked by Chrome for a possible Win 32 infection. Did this happen to anyone else?
This is amazing, I love technology!
Wonderful idea since music inspires my artwork Jazz in particular. Thanks for this information.
Does the viewer need to have Spotify installed for this to work on their computer? or will it work regardless?
The Spotify integration is a winner!! Very nice!
Ok, I have Spotify on my desktop, but what’s a page editor? Help I’m drowning in technology and can’t find my way out….
Will we be soon able to embed Deezer ? Thanks :)

Really Looking forward to adding this to my blog page. How do i attract more readers? Any add-ons that would help?
That’s a great tip. Thank you. Will look it up now!
It’s shame Spotify isn’t ready available for non-US peoples. I guess iTunes will have to do.
Great features! I learn something new everyday on WordPress.
