Spotify is supported for most functions (see the overview page). Currently, functions that require the use of the Spotify Web API, i.e. Like, are under active development. In development this functionality is working. It is expected that it will be available for everyone soon.

Contact me if you have any questions, or would like to be added to the pool of people that have access to the development version.


ListenBrainz is an online tool for keeping track of the music you listen to. It is comparable to what Last.fm does, but community driven and open-source. SmashTunes supports keeping track of your music on ListenBrainz.

With the arrival of macOS Mojave (10.14) applications that control other applications, as is obviously the case with SmashTunes, require permission from the user to do so. In case you've refused control and are wondering why SmashTunes isn't working properly, make sure to check the `Automation` settings within the `privacy` settings of the Security & Privacy control panel.
Unfortunately, there are no options to make this much easier (from within SmashTunes).

In case you did not get prompted to allow SmashTunes to control either Spotify or Apple Music, SmashTunes will not work as it should. Contact me if you are having trouble with this.
