Yes, it's my starred playlist. I would like to keep it public. But everytime I open Spotify it appears as secret, even if I marked it as public during the previous session.

 

Do you know if this normal?


It is a known issue, don't worry it will remain public unless you specify otherwise (eg. actually click secret). The privacy is just being reported incorrectly in the desktop client.

Thanks for the info! So.....I guess it's a just bug that will be solved one day or another.

 

Just one further question, it's quite off topic but maybe you know the answer: I have my playlists and my library. When I add a song to one of my playlists or when I star it as favourite, it is automatically added to my library. But, is it possible to add it to my library directly, without including it in a playlist or starring it? It's basically the same thing you can do in iTunes: you fill in your library and then create the playlists. It quite more straight forward

Hi,

 

You can only add songs to a playlist. I have a junk playlist where everything goes until I decide what I want to do with the tracks in terms of "organisation".

jwylot is correct here. The library function acts as a page to pull in all of your tracks from all of your other sources, whether it is local files or playlists or starred tracks. There is no way to manually add tracks to the library.

This is what a feared. Yes, I already adopted the junk playlist solution as a patch. I do hope that Spotify will allow to add songs directly to the library one day. It really looks the natural way to organize the songs to me.

 

Thanks to both for your confirmations.

 

Wish you a nice day,

Marco

Hi there, I'm having a similar problem. I started a playlist weeks ago, set it to secret and now some fool's subscribed to it. Do I really have to delete it  and start it again to get rid of this guy?

Unfortunatley yes, there is no way to force remove followers. Are you sure it was secret, the only way I can think they would have been able to find it is if they had a direct link to the playlist from your account. 

 

If you want to delete it, be sure to remove all of the tracks and then delete it, since just deleting it won't actually remove it from the other persons playlists either (it just breaks the tie to your account).

Maybe this is a really stupid question, but I'm gonna ask it anyway because I can't figure it out. Where do I find the Preferences menu on Spotify? I want to untick the "automatically make new playlists public" option.

No such thing as a stupid question, just a stupid answer 🙂

 

Menu at the top edit/preferences. You'll find those settings at the top of the preferences page.
