Getting Started

Spicetify is a multiplatform command-line tool to customize the official Spotify client.



This is the installation method we recommend for most users. It is the fastest and most reliable way to install Spicetify.

Powershell (pre-built binary)

iwr -useb | iex

Also run the following if you would like to install the Spicetify Marketplace, which gives you access to a tab in Spotify's sidebar that allows you to search for and install themes, extensions, and snippets.

iwr -useb | iex

Linux and MacOS

Shell (pre-built binary)

Spicetify CLI

curl -fsSL | sh

Spicetify Marketplace

curl -fsSL | sh

Basic Usage

After installing Spicetify and Spicetify's Marketplace, you can use it to customize your Spotify client using all the available extensions and themes found in the Marketplace.


Spotify, every now and then, updates its client. Since we have no power over this process, you will likely need to re-apply Spicetify.

However, the update might have major changes to the client, which means you will need to run spicetify update (spicetify upgrade in Spicetify versions below 2.27.0) every time you update Spotify. If no update for Spicetify is available, it means that it either still works by simply running spicetify backup apply, or that we are still working on updating Spicetify to work on the new version.
