[All Platforms][Playlists] Add the same song to multiple playlists simultaneously

There is no reason why Spotify shouldn't have a functionality on at least the desktop app where you can drag one song into as many "selected" playlists as you want and have that song added to all of them at the same time…


Here's a little more info to back up this request:


I'm, for one, the kind of person who obsesses over music, and a huge component of that is the way in which I organize my playlists.


I believe it is probably safe to say that most people wish their music was better organized, but the primary reason why they aren't is simply the amount of time it takes to put together quality playlists. Instead, what most people end up with are a small handful of enormous playlist hundreds, if not thousands, of songs that have no rhyme or reason to why they are in the same playlists.


To avoid this dilemma, I have spent hours and hours sorting through all my favorite songs and making different types of playlists that they may fit into. One thing I learned early on is that a particular song is likely going to fit into multiple playlists, and this is where the problem lies and the primary reason why most people avoid making well thought out playlists altogether.


In order to add a song to all the playlists I want, I have to sit at my computer and continuously drag a new song I want put into different playlists into each individual one over and over again which, when organizing dozens or even hundreds of songs, can take an insane amount of unnecessary time. And that is if you happen to be creating and organizing playlists on the desktop app… if you are trying to do this on your phone, you might as well forget about it - it would take you an hour to add 20 different songs to 10 different playlists.


That is why I believe Spotify should add a function (starting on desktop and eventually moving onto mobile like they are likely to do with the "folders" for playlists) in which a single song can be added to multiple playlists at the same time.


Attached is a picture originally posted by a subscriber named anaraee who had requested this a few years ago, but apparently wasn't able to get enough traction then... hopefully this time will be different.

Thank you again 🎶

  1. Dear Spotify... you just rolled out your new Jam feature to everyone but you still haven't given android users the basic and essential ability to add a song to more than one list at once.  PLEASE make this available! 
  • I'll switch over to YouTube Music, bye bye SPOTIFY! 

@Akaseth do you still have the feature?


I've had the feature some weeks ago (Android user, Samsung Galaxy S9) for 1 day, it was really handy, but after that day the app switched back to the previous state. I don't understand what they are working on. 🤔 Could we at least receive some status updates?


Okay today the feature is working again, hope they don't take it back tomorrow. Does it work even for other android users?

Glad you have it but I don't.

Galaxy s22 ultra running latest versions of Android and spotify

Oh wow, it's suddenly appeared on my phone, in the same format as above. I'm an Android user, not using the latest Android version as I'm on a Huawei P30. Hope it stays!!


Second day I have it, for now they haven't take it back, everything works good and it's very comfy.
