[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.


I'm having trouble finding where the green checkmark is. Can someone please help?

It's on the right of each playlist after you press 'add to playlist' 🙂

Es wäre gut wenn man in diesem Forum auch Bilder mit anhängen könnte. Diese würde manche Erklärung vereinfachen. 


@Scamper10 Thank you so much!


Heads up to people: the checkmarks are on the desktop app, but not on the online player

Depends… are you on a desk or laptop or your phone app?

Yup, you can see the checkmarks also on an iPhone. But you still have to click on every single folder to see if there is a checked playlist in it. 😭


I was ecstatic with the updated feature – I could click on the check and quickly see all the playlists a song had been add it to, neatly at the top. It has since been reverted today and I have to scroll through and click through folders to be able to see each individual playlist with a green check. Is this temporary or has the feature officially been taken away? This was legitimately a feature I had waited years to see in spotify and I'm so sad if it was this short lived...
