What is a Scannable Mix Tape Tee or Mug?
Basically, back in the day, <cough> the eighties, people used to make and give mix tapes that they would put together by copying songs from another tape or by recording songs from the radio.
Yes it was cheesy but it was cool. Now you can put together these mixes on Spotify and share them or even give them as a gift.
But instead of playing the tapes in your tape deck or Camaro, these tees or mugs can be scanned using your Spotify app and played just about anywhere. Anyone who scans your mix tape item will be immediately taken to the song, artist album or playlist you selected and hear the playlists you've poured your heart into.
The cool part is the playlists you create can have your custom name and image when viewing on Spotify.
What apps can you use to read Spotify Codes?

What happens if I change the title of the playlist after creating a Spotify code?
You can change a playlist title and contents after creating a Spotify Code and it should still work as long as the URI does not change. (IE: DonÕt delete the playlist and create a new one, or change the username on your account if youÕre sharing your playlists.)
Does the Spotify Code need to have the Spotify Logo at the front?
Spotify Codes need the Spotify logo at the front so they can be read by the scanner.
