How to make collaborative playlists public?

Question:
Why can't I make a playlist (I am currently sharing with a friend) public?
As soon as I unmark my playlist Collaborative or Common I can make it public, but as long as it  is collaborative or common it doesn't work.

Such a intelligent App, but yet not?

Appriciate answears and sorry for the poor english.

Hey @mr_orange

 

I did some more digging on your problem. Take a look at this:

Turns out, Spotify just doesn't allow collab playlists to be made public right now. Hopefully in the future! Sorry, I know that wasn't the answer you wanted.

 

Here's an idea though: You can copy the playlist and make the copied version public!

It should be public by default, try making it private and then making it public again or deleting it and then recover it from your spotify profile in the webpage, that should work.

Hey there!

 

Try checking your account settings. Go to settings > Social. There you'll see a switch to automatically make playlists public. Makes sure it's green so you know it's on. Maybe that's your issue?

 

Hope that helps!

Hi my friend,
Thank you for your answer.

Unfortunately that didn’t work, I guess the Spotify application doesn’t work making common playlists public.

Hi my friend,
Thank you for your answer.

Unfortunately that didn’t work. (making it private and public again)
I don't really feel like deleting it and then recovering it, it is shared and the songs are hard to set up the way it is now..

Pigeon, you are an angel without wings.
Thank your for the research and the advice.
I just shared the list to a few who wanted to listen.
I didn't think of that.

Spotify playlists can actually be made public.

 

If you on a laptop device and you go to make your collaborative playlist public, it would be greyed out meaning you can't make it public. BUT! There's a solution for that, if you download the Spotify app on your phone, and go click edit, you can actually make it public, my friends and all my cousins have done this so now we can add to each other's playlists.

 

Hopefully, that made sense.
