How to create a playlist and add songs on Spotify

Spotify helps you organize your music in a variety of ways. In the Your Library section, it is possible to add single songs, complete albums, or follow artists. It is also the place where your favorite podcasts are stored. Still, playlists remain the ideal way to create personalized music selections. In the following lines, we explain how you can add playlists to your Spotify library and add songs to them.

Playlists must be created from the Your Library section. There, you will see the + button. Tap on it to start.

Tapping on it will open a card with suggestions. It is possible to see more concrete proposals by scrolling the cards from left to right and vice versa. When you find a song you want to add to the list, tap on the side button. If none of these suggestions convince you, use the Search field to locate specific artists, songs, or albums.
