Please note, that the background color of the widget is set by Spotify based on the "context"-image (artist, album, playlist). If you want to change the background color, try changing the "context"-image to something similar to your web app color scheme.
Also note that for users who are not logged in on their Spotify account, the Spotify Embed plays a 30-second long audio preview, and then the users are prompted to either login or to sign up.
