My Question or Issue

 even though some playlists say to add a song, when I go to add a song to existing playlists I can't; the only option I get is to add to a new playlist - when I type in the playlist name even if it's existing, it simply creates a new playlist.  But I can't add to existing playlists even if there's permission, I don't seem to have that option - am I doing something wrong, am I missing something?

Hello @nublr!

 

I'm sorry to hear that you're having issues adding songs to playlists. The good part is that I'll try to solve your problem :)

 

However, I need a bit more info in order to help you:

 

- Which version of Spotify are you using? (Android, Web player, IOs, Windows Desktop, Mac Desktop, Linux Desktop...)

 

- What happens when you try to add a new song to a playlist? Does it show an error message?

 

I'll be happy to help, keep me posted, Jose :)

hi thanks for getting back - I'm using an hp pavilion laptop, windows 10 - so I rightclick on a song and the option to add it to a playlist comes up which I click - then a menu comes up but tells me to add it to a new playlist, doesn't give me option to add to an existing one. Says to type in the name of the playlist, and even if I type in an existing name, it makes a new list with just the one song I'm trying to add - there's no option to add it to an existing list, even if the list is in my profile. Thanks for your help.
