Playlists

A playlist is simply a collection of songs. You can make your own, share them, and enjoy the millions of other playlists created by Spotify, artists, and other listeners worldwide.

Tip: 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, skip) and the listening habits of others with similar taste.

On mobile, they're featured in Home

On desktop, you can find these under YOUR LIBRARY on the left, in Made For You.

Some of these playlists are personalized, so you may see different track listings to someone else. As an example, if a playlist has ‘sing-along hits’, it’ll have songs you know the words to!
