Playlists

Put simply, a playlist is a collection of music. You can make them for yourself, you can share them, and you can enjoy the millions of other playlists created by Spotify, artists, and fans.

Tip: Select FOLLOW on any playlist to save it to Your Library. And get organized with Playlist folders.

Made for you 

The many playlists Spotify makes just for you, such as Discover Weekly and Release Radar, are based on your listening habits -- what you like, share, save, even what you skip -- as well as those of people with similar tastes.

You can find these in Browse, under Discover. They're also often featured on the home page of the mobile Spotify app and web player

Made for everyone
