How To Make A Collaborative Playlist On Spotify

October 9, 2022

With just a few clicks, you can make any of your Spotify playlists “collaborative,” meaning that anyone who has the link can add songs to it.

How to make a Collaborative Spotify playlist?

Open the Spotify app, create a playlist or open a playlist that you want to make Collaborative. Keep in mind you can only do this for playlists you’ve created.

On Mobile:

  1. Tap Horizontal 3 dots icon  (iOS) / Vertical 3 dots icon (Android) at the top of the playlist.
  2. Select Invite collaborators. This generates a link that’s valid for 7 days.
  3. Share the link to your friends. You can share to social or messaging apps or by copying a link.

On desktop:

  1. Go to the playlist and click Horizontal 3 dots icon. Select Invite collaborators.
  2. This generates a link that’s valid for 7 days.
  3. Share the link to your friends.

How to remove a collaborator?

  2. Tap Horizontal 3 dots icon  (iOS) / Vertical 3 dots icon (Android) next to your friend’s name.
  3. Select Remove as collaborator.

How to add someone’s Collaborative playlist to your Library?

Once you send someone the link to your collaborative playlist, they can open and listen to that playlist by clicking on the link. However, unless they want to find and use the same link every time, they should add the playlist to their library.

Adding a playlist to your Spotify library saves it to your personal playlist collection, making it easy to find and open whenever you want.

To save a collaborative playlist to your library, open its link and load it in the Spotify app. Then click or tap the heart icon below the playlist name.

Differences between Blend playlist and Collaborative playlist

Blend allows up to 10 users in one group to create shared playlists that merge their latest music tastes and it updates daily according to your listening habits. Any people in the Blend can add their friends.

You can also blend with artists. To see all of the artists you can Blend with and their invite links, check out our blog post.

  1. Get the artist’s Blend invite link: 
    a. From the artist’s social media account
    b. In the Artist pick playlist on their Spotify profile
  2. Tap the link. This opens the invite on the Spotify app.
  3. On the app, tap Go to Blend.

Songs in a Collaborative playlist are all added by the Creator and Collaborator. Spotify won’t add songs to it. Only the creator can invite collaborators.
