[Playlists] Owner controls Collaborative Playlists

The current collaboration playlist allows anyone to delete the whole list of songs, or secretly delete individual songs one by one. Which makes the collaboration feature pretty useless.


To prevent trolls from destroying a playlist, my suggestion is to add special privileges to the owner of the collaboration playlist. So anyone can SUGGEST songs to add or delete, in the playlist. It then pops up a yes/or no option to the owner of the playlist.

I have a private collaborative playlist with someone. In my profile is hidden and that's perfect, but the playlist appears in the profile of the person I'm sharing with and everyone can see the playlist. Help :( @osornios


That's a really good idea. 

I also think that there should be an option that in a collaborative playlist anyone should be able to switch songs. But so there is no trolling, it should be more like a que. 

For example

There are three people in a collaborative playlist. And one of them (not the playlist owner) wants the next song to be their spng, so they put it on a que. And the only person that gets to skip a song is the person who chose the song.

It is an idea that my friends and I thpthou would be a great addition to spotify. I hope that it sounded logical enough 😄

I can't believe this has been open since 2012 and not acted on 🙄


@Paulg Serously. So many good idaes are given on here. Time spofity looks for innovations from their listeners.


Can we please make this happen? Only let the owner delete tracks.




Why is this not a thing? It's what I HATE about Spotify. It's not that hard, come on.
