This is far from the truth.  Spotify fully supports it.  There is a world outside of Apple.

Still scrobbling religiously after 12+ years. Most annoying thing for me is how they basically killed the social aspect of it, making following people essentially useless. I miss the friend feed that showed me what others were listening to. Like Spotify's feed on the desktop version. I only scrobble for OCD reasons and because I enjoy looking at my own stats, but otherwise it's really pointless when the social tools and recommendation tools have been neutered. I also used to keep track of upcoming shows with last.fm, but that functionality was severely dumbed down years ago and never regained strength. That was a good way to connect with people locally too.

This really is true.  I mostly use it to check my own data and I also subscribe to it because I think that it's worth it.  There is still somewhat of a social aspect to it as far as the leader boards.

Use it all the time... I kinda wish Spotify just did this tracking for us and gave the stats. I have a fairly strict rule against listening to anything I own physically, so lastfm is helpful when I'm in the record store wondering what I should look for. Yea though, seems pretty dead otherwise...

16 years of (audio)scrobbling: http://www.last.fm/user/tape

 

(also it's working fine on MacOS for me)

 

The site's half-pointless now that they murdered all the cool social tools and the friend feed and events and stuff. But it's still running and I've got years and years of plays on there so I still do it.

whether it's integrated well in Spotify (which some ppl don't use, there being a world outside Spotify as well) or not is moot here; the scrobbler doesn't play ball with Mac OS for lots of ppl. there's certainly no meaningful support for it.

Try iScrobble. I posted about it in this thread 3 years ago and I'm still using it daily on my Macbook.

I've dreamed for a long time of Spotify and Last.fm merging, but with better social tools. Both are lacking. 

Although Spotify absorbing Last.fm wouldn't solve everything, as I don't listen exclusively on Spotify. I play a lot of music in iTunes and iPhone, as well as vinyl. I use a script/extension called scRYMble that ties in to Rateyourmusic.com to scrobble things I play on vinyl after the fact or while listening. Nothing lost! Hahah

Chiming in to say that I stream Spotify from an iPhone and use the standard client with iTunes or Swinsian on the Mac at home, and have never had an issue.  Just for what it’s worth.  The horror stories I’ve heard with iOS compatibility sound terrible and I hope to never discover firsthand where they stem from.

Been on there since 06. Don't mind my cringey name on there. I thought it was cool back in the day Haha. 

 

Is there a way to change your name on there yet? I remember I looked a few years back but couldn't find a way

I still SORT OF scrobble.  #RIP the free radio days.
I use a third party phone app and a chrome plug in to scrobble my Google Play Music.

I would say it only ends up getting like 40% of what I actually listen to, some days it will just sort of decide it doesn't feel like working.

Feel free to shoot me a friend request, though I sort of see last.fm dissapearing in the next few years.

i scrobbled successfully for almost 12 years until my scrobbler mysteriously stopped working 13 months ago. happy to announce my last successful scrobble was "they fucked our asses" by tenacious d

also, if anyone has any idea why this might've happened... for PC folks, i thought we were able to have multiple ipods connected to it, but maybe not. (my newer one broke, so now i'm using an older one... and yes i still fuck with ipods.) i don't even remember the process for, like, "connecting" an ipod to the itunes scrobbler for PC. it's probably easy to look up, but clearly i've been too lazy to figure this out for way too long and then got discouraged that i've lost a year of data. anyway, if someone wants to save me three minutes of googling, let me know

I see a lot of people mentioning scrobbling from their phone - guessing there’s no way to do this with Apple Music?

you can do this (and it haven't noticed any issues at all here) if you have added the music to your library before scrobbling. you don't need to download files, just put the album in your library. plays will show up when you scan with the iOS scrobbler app.

Can I scrobble Bandcamp or Amazon Music on my iphone or just Apple Music?

the iOS scrobbler will only scrobble plays from the Apple Music app, unfortunuately.

 

IIRC songs you play on the iOS Spotify app will scrobble if you have your last.fm info entered in the desktop Spotify app. (this has nothing to do with the last.fm scrobbler app)

 

That's all I know of for iOS
