  3. Try a different embed method: If the Spotify embed link isn't working, you can try using alternate methods to embed Spotify content in Notion. For example, you can take a screenshot of the Spotify album cover or podcast episode and insert it as an image in Notion, with a clickable link to the Spotify content.
