How to transfer playlists to family members?

Dear Community,

I just subscribed to a family membership. I already added two family members who previously have had their playlists stored under my main account (e.g. "Playlist daughter"). I would now like to transfer these lists to their new created sub accounts. How can I do this? I'm not able to find my family members using the search bar.

Is there an option to "copy/transfer playlist to family member xy"?

Thanks for your help!

Kind regards

Thore

I have a similar setup where my wife had her own playlist under my account. When we upgraded to the family account she no longer had access to her playlist as it was under my user in our family account. The way I got round this was simple. You will both need to have whatsapp or an email account to do this:
1. Go to my playlist and identify my wife's playlist.
2. Click on the menu options next to the playlist name (the three vertical dots).
3. Select the share option from the menu.
4. Select Whatsapp
5. Select my wife's name and send link to her.
6. My wife receives whatsapp message and clicks on the link I sent her.
7. Link opens up the playlist in Spotify.
8. My wife can then switch on the download switch and download the songs to her account.
9. The newly downloaded playlist will have the same name as the old one.

Enjoy

Hi @Tojo375, welcome to the Spotify Community!

 

Just follow these steps:

 

- Using your computer, open the Spotify app to log in your kids' account.

- Create a new empty playlist.

- Type your username in the search tab.

- If you don't know what's your username, just click here.

- Once you find it, select and copy all songs in it.

- Paste them into the new playlist.

- Enjoy :)

 

Let me know if you have any other questions!

Hi!

Thanks for your kind reply. Unfortunately this isn't working.

Although the actual playlist is marked public ("veröffentlichen"), it won't appear

when I search for my own playlists under my kids login. From my kids account though I am able to find my own profile.

What am I doing wrong?

If the playlist is public, just click on Public Playlists on your profile (logged in your kid's account), and you should see all your public ones, including the one you're looking for.

 

You can also do it in another way: 

 

Logged in your account, go to the playlist you want to copy, click on the three dotted icon just besides PLAY and copy playlist link.

 

Then you log out and log in your kid's account. Paste the link on the search bar. Select/copy/paste the songs to the new playlist :)

I can copy the playlist no problem. My Wife can't add songs to her playlist.

Hey @johnsonmcclay, what happens when your wife tries to add songs to her playlist?

It wants her to start a playlist because she has no playlist because her list is under my master account, before we had family.
