With Spotify, you can access up to 50 million songs and over 700,000 podcasts. But when you share your favorite track, album, artist, or playlist with your friends, what will you do?

Or copy the URL of the song and send the Spotify link to your friends for sharing.

In this post, I will introduce you what is a Spotify URI, how to get it, as well as, how to use it. And at the end, I will also show you how to download and convert Spotify URI to MP3.

What is A Spotify URI?

URI is short for Uniform Resource Identifier is a string of characters that identify a certain type of resource. Different from URL (Uniform Resource Locator) which is more commonly used to access a webpage, URI will direct you to the specific app or client on your device rather than an internet domain. And by clicking on a Spotify URI, you'll be directly taken to the Spotify client on your computer without going through the webpage in advance.

How to Get Spotify URI?

It's easy to find and get Spotify URI with the Spotify client. To find Spotify URI, just perform the following steps on your computer.

1. Open the Spotify app on your desktop, and turn to the specific song, album, artist, playlist, or podcast you want to share.

2. Move your mouse over to the title and then right-click on it.

3. Click Share and select Copy Spotify Link. Now you get the Spotify URI copied to your clipboard.
