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!


Please add this soon! Its already possible since some official playlists (and one of my own) have these features! I want to be able to do it to them all! 



We top contributors got this, so why can't it be enabled for all premium users, with a bit of moderation 😛

This should have been implemented long time ago!!

Spotify, please make it happen!!


That would be a great feature. Putting even more emphasis on sharing and making Spotify personalized, which is ultimately Spotify's motto. Kudos!


I'd like to be able to voice annotate a playlist. For example, to describe a set of ten tracks. There isn't enough informational context for serious listeners. I'd like to be able to tell listeners "Here are ten tracks from different artists and genres all featuring drummer Vinnie Colaiuta. You'll especially enjoy the way he makes 7/4 time groove on the opening track titled "whatever" and the reverse gate on the snare drum on the second track "whatdoyouthink." The third tune is his only recording with Miles Davis titled "blahblahblah" and so forth.



+1 Please allow premium subscribers to edit the playlist image/avatar .. cheers


+1 just simply choosing the 4 album covers would be great.


Yeah would like something built-in instead of having to use sharemyplaylists app in order to effectively share our playlists.



I wish the playlists were more interactive.  It would be great to have a simple forum page per playlist.  I have 13 on my ElectroPOP list... but I would love to hear some of their ideas without having to open the list to being edited by anyone.


This is a great program, despite the lack of playlist social interaction.  Thanks for all your work!




I LOVE the fact, that a play list I made for my self now have more than 30 subscribers. People I don't know, but who wants to hear the playlist I have compiled. WOW, how great is that? 🙂


I would really like for these people to be able to read about my thoughts for the playlist. What mood I was trying to create. Why something was included. Why something wasn't.


So I really need to be able to put an infomation text on the playlist.


Also, this would help when you want to browse other users playlist. Information on what to expect.


Also, let me choose the 1 or 4 covers I think most represent the playlist instead of just the first 4 tracks.
