How to scrobble Spotify music with Last.fm


Last.fm specializes in suggesting music recommendations by the use of a free "scrobbler" music player plug-in. Scrobbling is a process that tracks your listening habits and uploads them from a third-party app to your Last.fm account. Last.fm works across your entire music collection. You can scrobble from your desktop music app, Spotify, YouTube, Google Play Music, Deezer, SoundCloud, Sonos, Tidal, and more. There's also an Android app and an iOS app that can scrobble local music on your mobile devices. Every time you play a track, it is added, or scrobbled, to your Last.fm account. This allows you to share musical tastes, make and receive recommendations, and create custom radio stations. If you want to learn more details about how to scrobble Spotify with Last.fm, just follow these steps.

Part 3 The Benefits of Scrobbling Spotify to Last.fm

If you decide to scrobble Spotify using the Last.fm scrobbler, you'll have access to a few unique benefits beyond the main features that Last.fm already provides:

Local Spotify Files: Spotify lets you add your locally saved files into the app. It also scrobbles any locally saved songs that you play through the Spotify app.

Offline Scrobbling: All the iterations of the app allow you to download Spotify music to listen to offline. Last.fm can scrobble the last 50 tracks you listened to while offline the next time you connect to the web.

Private Sessions: If you don't want Spotify to log your play history, you can enter a Private Session. If you start a Private Session on Spotify, Last.fm scrobbling is also suspended. It's a great way to prevent your Last.fm data from getting clogged up with kids' songs and podcasts.
