That's not true. I have had the paid version for about three years and Spotify has recently (within the last 7 or 8 months) been adding whole playlists to my account, (which also takes up space on my device), and every time I delete one, another pops up. Its aggravating and I'm almost ready to deactivate my account.

Hey guys,

 

We're here to answer your questions :)

 

@aagend - thanks for your feedback. If this is a feature you would like removed, you can create an idea about it here (just scroll to the bottom of the page). Other users can then 'vote' the idea if they agree with it.

 

@aprlee05 - could you send us a screenshot of the playlists that you are referring to? Are you sure they are Spotify-created playlists, or do they belong to other users? Let us know :)

 

Take care,

 

P

@spotify -

 

You're simply wrong here. I created a playlist yesterday for songs to wake up to. Created the list with 3 songs.

 

Selected that list in Android Clock and when the alarm went off it wasn't one of my songs.

 

I keep removing the songs you added and more songs get added back.

 

I created it. It's not Spotify created, curated or shared.

 

There must be a way to select "do not auto add tracks" without conprocompro your no skips or adding ads.

This was driving me crazy too. I think i have found the reason for it adding random songs. There is a minimum number of songs required in a playlist. I figure this due the following logic...

I add 5 songs, it adds 10.

I add 8 songs, it adds 7.

I add 11 songs, it adds 4.

I add 15 songs, it adds 0.

My playlists with 15 or more songs never have Spotify added songs in them.

Hope this helps those frustrated like I was.

  • Plan (Free/Premium): Free
  • Spotify version: 8.4.81.558
  • OS version and device: Android 9, Pixel 3
  • How long have you experienced this for? Since installing app
  • Does this happen to all playlists created by you, or only some? Most of them. Seems to be - as mentioned by another user - that the shorter playlists are being added to.  So if you create a playlist for an album, Spotify is adding non-album tracks to the playlist.

I was trying to reply to the post by English.. But, I Have to Agree With the 15 Song Minimum! I have a few small playlists, and those are the only ones to have stupid Songs Added by Spotify 🙄😒👎 So fkn annoying! At least I have a solution for it now. 

** And, I’m gonna try Adding Duplicates to see if that works!

Smart suggestion. For shorter playlists, we should just create it twice (or 3x) until you hit the 15 song minumum.
