How do I find out what playlist I am listening to?

So when I opened Spotify, I saw a recommended playlist for throwback thursday dance party at the very top of the "Overview" section (just below the "summer music guide" banner. I started listening to it, and latger decided I want to save this playlist.

 

I went bacl to Spotify app, however the welcome page has now changed and is no longer showing this playlist, and I did searches and I can't find it.

 

I am still listening to the list though. I just don't know how to save it.

 

I hope this makes sense. I can see each individual song as it plays of course, but where do I find the original playlist?

I find clicking or double-clicking the song artwork usually takes you to the view you started playing from.

I read through this entire message board trying every single thing to solve this problem and none of the solutions worked...I gave up and tried the simplest thing I could. I clicked on the cover art and it took me straight to the playlist. I don't know if this will work for everyone but it worked for me! I hope that helps. Spotify really needs to fix this though...it is way to difficult to figure out!

It's a single click, and double to go to the album the song is from. :)

Hi guys!

I found the simplest solution in this query. This is only for desktop users.


1. Click the album cover of the song currently playing from the playlist.

 

 

2. There you go!


I also do hope Spotify will make it less stressful. I was frustrated before I found the solution myself.

Thanks. I actually didn't even know about that. However it only shows me the upcoming queue it seems. No way to see the originating playlist.

 

At the top it says "Playing from: Browse", and clicking Browse just takes me back to the welcome screen.

Annoyingly since the Browse tab runs as an app inside Spotify, the play queue (and click to go to playlist system) doesn't work as it does with normal playlists.

Did you ever figure out how to find which playlist you are listening to? I'm in the exact predicament. This playlist rocks and I want to save it. I randomly clicked one of the featured playlists under the browse tab and now I don't know how to figure out which one it is. :(

Arghh...I'm now in this boat. I'm listening to some amazing playlist and I can't figure out what it is .... sigh.

 

When I double-click the art, it just takes me back to the front of "browse."

 

I went and saved the songs to a playlist from the Play Queue and History. But, gosh, I'd sure like to know if whovever owns this list ever updates it.

 

Wow.

Under "Main" menu, there is a "Play Queue" press that on the righ you'll see the list of songs that are going to be played. On the top it says: Playing from: "The list name" you can click on the list name and follow or waht ever you like to do. :)

 

Hope it helps. Take care.
