Copying playlist AND be able to add songs

Copying playlist AND be able to add songs

I currently have a family membership with spotify. Main account and a sub-account. Both are shared between 4 family members. I want to copy a Playlist from the main account to the sub account and then be able to add to it.

Right now, I have the Playlist "shared" from the main account to the sub-account. This works for the most part, but if I want to add music to this playlist, it has to be done from the main account. I want to be able to do it from the sub account.

Any suggestions?

You could make the playlist colobrative, but then anyone would be able to edit it.


You could have contact support, they might be able to move it over to the other account

Making the playlist "colobrative" could work. When you say " anyone would be able to edit it", does this mean anyone within my family (4 members) or does this mean the playlist somehow becomes public to ANYONE in the Spotify community? If its just my family members, I can live with that. How do I then make a playlist "colobrative"? I'm trying to figure it out, but can't seem to find this option (from the main account). I am seeing on the internet how it says to "right-click (or Ctrl-click on the Mac) the list and select Collaborative Playlist", but I am not seeing this option available. Unless I am doing something wrong here. 



Right now, I am the primary user of the sub-account (phone and iPad) while my wife, son and daughter are the primary users of the main account. I want to make it so me and my son are primarily on the sub-account while my wife and duaghter are primarily on the main account. Therefore, less conflicts when more then one person wants to play Spotify from their tablets. 


This is why I am more or less trying to totally move a playlist (my son's) from the main account over to the sub-account and then he can add songs as he want. 





Please see the original blog post regarding collaborative Playlists. Just make it private and invite your family users and you should be all good.

Well, I was able to finally figure out how to use the "collabrative" feature and it works great. Exactly what I needed. Most of the time, wife and daughter are using the main account while me and my son use the sub-account so we have less conflicts. Can now easily add songs from whichever account I am using at the time though. Thanks for the advice.
