Research suggests that background music can help improve performance with memory and cognitive tasks. Personally, I enjoy listening to some LoFi beats while working. Listening to music while studying or working is very much down to the individual.
Why not combine the best of both worlds and embed a Spotify playlist on your Notion page? The steps are outlined below.
How To Add Spotify Playlist To Notion
A Spotify widget in Notion lets you display your favorite songs, playlists, and albums directly on your Notion dashboard.
With this integration, you can seamlessly access and control your Spotify content while working on your Notion pages, enhancing productivity and entertainment in one place.
Simply copy the embed playlist in Spotify and paste it into Notion’s embed block.
Start by opening your Spotify playlist.
- Click on the “…”
- Embed Playlist
- Adjust the various settings, then Copy. Tip – you can resize the window in Notion directly, too.
On your page in Notion, type the command /embed.
Paste in the code from Spotify and hit Enter (or click the Embed link). Give it a few seconds, and then your Spotify playlist should show up as shown on Spotify. Super easy!
When you start running too many embedded widgets or links, Notion can run a bit sluggish. You can read tips on how to make Notion faster here.
Bonus tip – if you don’t have Spotify, you can still embed your favorite music playlist from YouTube. Copy the video URL, paste it, and click “Embed video”. You can then play it directly from your Notion page.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a limit to how many Spotify tracks or playlists I can embed in Notion?
Notion doesn’t impose a specific limit on the number of Spotify tracks or playlists you can embed.
However, for page loading speed and usability, it’s good practice to avoid overloading a single page with too many embeds.
Can I customize the appearance of the embedded Spotify player in Notion?
When embedding Spotify content into Notion, the appearance is determined by Spotify’s default embed settings.
You can’t customize the Spotify player’s design directly, but you can adjust its placement and surrounding content within your Notion page to better fit your layout.
