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 Spotify fans worldwide.

Tip: You can organize your music even more 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. On mobile they're often featured in Home

Made for everyone

Curated by music experts from around the globe, find these in Browse. We’ve even categorized them into Genres & Moods for you.

We personalize some of these playlists, so you might see slightly different track listings to someone else. For example, if a playlist has ‘sing-along hits’ we’ll include songs you’d actually know the words to!
