How to embed MP3 audio files in your Shopify store with the help of Google Drive

You can embed audio files in your Shopify store with audio hosting websites like SoundCloud or Anchor.fm. Just upload your file – like an MP3 song or an audio podcast – to any of these sites and they’ll provide the HTML embed code that you can copy-paste in your web template. Simple!

But you can embed MP3 audio files in your pages with the help of Google Drive.

DEMO

Step 1: Upload the MP3 to Google Drive

Open drive.google.com and upload the MP3 to your Google Drive. After the file is uploaded, right-click to share and set the sharing permission to “Anyone on the Internet can find and view“.

Step 2: Generate the Player Embed Code

The Google Drive URL will have the following structure: https://drive.google.com/file/d/abcxyz123/view?usp=sharing

Now all you have to do is replace /view with /preview and wrap the modified URL in an IFRAME tag as shown below:

The embedded MP3 player has volume controls, play/pause buttons, seek bar, no Google branding, it works on mobile and the play also auto-detects and displays the duration of the music file.
