[Playlists] See which playlists a song has already been added to

Sometimes I think of or hear a song and I want to add it to a certain playlist but I’m not sure if it’s already in there, or I just want to know what playlists it’s in (e.g. I accidentally added the song to the wrong playlist and want to take it out, but wasn't sure which one I accidentally clicked/pressed on). It would be nice to to have a feature where you can check which playlists of yours a song has been added to. I know that you there’s a notification if it’s a duplicate, but it would be more convenient if the song is in multiple playlists to just see all of them at once rather than getting that notification one by one for all of them, if that make sense.


Edit: someone in the comments suggested having checkmarks next to the playlist names in the "Add to playlist" drop-down and that would be perfect!

Hi everyone,

Thank you for all the support and feedback you've given to this idea!

We have some exciting news to share with you: you can now tap the green check mark icon Check Mark Icon.png of a song/episode to see which playlists it's been saved in! You also get quick access to all of your playlists in case you want to add the song/episode to (or remove it from) some of your other playlists:


The playlists the item's been saved in will also have a check mark.The playlists the item's been saved in will also have a check mark.

Thanks again for helping us make Spotify better. We're always striving to provide the best possible user experience and your feedback is greatly appreciated.

What I'm confused by is that the green arrows on my phone show me the
playlists with the specific song, but on my desktop it only looks like I
have the option to add them to another Playlist. Maybe I am missing
When you are n desktop, you have to click the green check mark next to the
song and then it will show up like on your mobile. If you right click it
doesn’t work for some reason
this doesn't work for me, right or left click I only get options to add it
to a new list, etc.


I had this feature on mobile for a few weeks and it was incredible, but in the past couple days it disappeared??? Did they revert this update? 


Yay, it looks like the green checkmarks are now on the online player!


Looks like it got removed again... unfortunate.


This feature worked for a few weeks and then it stopped working in both Iphone and Windows Desktop app. I was so happy with being able to see all the playlists my current song was in. Please fix this 🙂


@EQDj All these comments about this feature being removed are confusing me because currently, it's working for me on the desktop app and the online player for Mac and Windows. For a little while it was not on the online player, but now for me it is. I'm sorry it's not working for you. Maybe you can try re-installing both your desktop and mobile apps. Let me know if that does it. 🙂


@glointhedark I reinstall Spotify on my Iphone and I still cannot see the feature working as it should.


@EQDj Sorry that didn't work. I'm not sure what the problem would be. If you could take a screenshot and share it here that would be great.
