How to scan a Spotify code


Scanning a Spotify code is a pretty simple process. Just tap the search bar in Spotify as you would when you’re about to search an artist, song, playlist, podcast, etc. and as soon as your keyboard pops up take a look in the top right corner. You’ll find a little camera icon. This is the icon you’ll want to click if you’re going to scan a Spotify code.
