Customization of playlists (cover and description box)

Hello, Spotify Community! 

 

One of the things I enjoy about Spotify, is that I get to share music I enjoy, with people all around the world. But how great would it be if it was possible to customize your playlists, to make it your very own. And it doesn't necessary need a lot of advanced or fancy stuff, just your picture of choice for the cover (instead of 4 album covers from your tracklist) and a description box, would be enough to make it kind of original (and make it easier for people to know what kind of music the playlist will include/what it's made for etc.). 

 

Here's an illustration of how I imagine the customization being put to use:

 

 

Let me hear what you think of it, and give it some kudos if you feel like doing so. :)

 

Have a good one,

We’re excited to finally share that you can now upload your own playlist cover and description on Desktop. Uploading via iOS and Android to follow. The feature is slowly rolling out so if you don’t have it yet check back soon. Thanks for the feedback. Enjoy!

Aaa! I wish I could add a description from the app! I don't have a desktop to play my music from, I only have my iPad and I long to add descriptions yet I cannot! :////////

On chrome book, you can not change the description and/or the playlist cover. I am glad to say that this feature should be rolled out on all platforms, not just the most popular. If I helped you, you are welcome.

You have said this is a feature but I can't find how to do it anywhere. Please sort it.

From what I've heard, you can sign up for Spotify's Rock Star Program to have the customizable playlist covers. Here's the link. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdYmqhCVH62hCinsOKqpZjmYOuAd2dGDQJdR2mjq7Qwa8XdeA/viewform

I think they're working on making this feature public for everyone, but they haven't been able to release it to the public yet, so don't stress over it!! The feature should be released to the public eventually. :)

WOW!! I'm glad this is finally rolling out! This has been a long and overdue feature that thousands of people wanted. It's every exciting seeing Spotify hear the community out

 

But! I have a question. Hopefully someone can answer. How come I'm still not able to change the cover picture/description of my playlist? Any ideas?
