Track users and share what's currently being played within your chat!


This integration was built using the free API key from It uses Node Cron to check followed users recent tracks in regular intervals and post back what people are listening to in your chat. Shout out to for supporting a free tier API capable of allowing us to do this.

Some things to note, in recent years, more and more companies are closing up their open integrations and trying to keep users in a walled garden. To see how to scrobble from your favorite media sources, look here Track My Music |

Example Interaction:

Hubot >> 🎧 IsolatedSnail: Rehab - Bottles & Cans Hubot >> 🎧 IsolatedSnail: Usher - Burn


Managing Followed Users

Commands are case insensitive. Any changes to the list of followed users from a channel that is not the notification channel will be announced in the notification channel so all users are kept up to date of changes.

  • hubot show lastfm users - List all users hubot is currently tracking on
  • hubot follow lastfm (username) - Add new user to the list of currently tracked profiles.
  • hubot forget lastfm (username) - Remove a user from the list of currently tracked profiles.


Run the following command

$ npm install hubot-lastfm-notifier --save

To enable the script, add a hubot-lastfm-notifier entry to the external-scripts.json file (you may need to create this file).


Release Notes


  • 1.0.1 tried to rework the scans to only pick up songs that were being actively listened to (i.e: Now Playing). This resulted in several clients no longer reporting listens as several clients wait until a song is mostly played and then just report the played song.
  • 1.0.2 will filter out the "now playing" track and interact only with completed listens. This should prevent the previous 1.0.0 bug where songs would flip around as the song changed. And it should also allow for clients that only report listens.


  • Only notifies on "now playing" to prevent bot from resending previous scrobbles when's API is running behind and songs don't immediately show up in history after played.


  • Initial release.
  • Includes adding, removing, and listing followed users.
  • Notification channel and alerting channels can be configured separately.
  • Supports custom cron schedule, defaults to once/minute.
