[Discover] Find public Playlists that contain Song/Artist

My theory (not rocket science):


If someone else's playlist includes a song or artists that I like, there is a good change that I will enjoy the rest of their playlist. 


Currently, you can only search for public playlists via playlist name.  Considering that most people do not name their playlists to accurately reflect the type of music it contains, I believe that the current search functionality is quite limited. 


Spotify should have functionality to search for public playlists that contain a song/artist.  I think would be immensly helpful for music discovery.  


Best of luck, 



P.S. - Down the line, it would be interesting to see "similarity scores" between two playlists.  Could be quite interesting for finding new music.

Hey folks.

Thanks again for all your votes and comments.
We're still keeping an eye on this idea, but at this time we don't have an update.


Please add this in!!


I would love to have a feature like this as well!

It would also be very useful to get suggestions of user playlists that have a lot of followers.

I know a lot of music blogs that have an account on spotify with multiple great playlists.

Having the possibility to stumble upon these in the Spotify app would really be a great feature.


I just canceled my subscription.


After almost two years of use I'm pretty much fed up with the limited discovery functionality and the lack of improvement. Software products need to constantly evolve and become better. Spotify missed out on that and lost me as a paying customer. The issue in this ticket is what I refer to when people ask for a reason.

I have now switch to a competitor who offered a free three months trial period. This one also doesn't feel perfect but already surprised me with a few fresh ideas.


@spotify I'm disappointed in you 


We need this update, i agree with everything. Many people have unique taste in music and we want to find others with similar unique taste so we can exchange songs we both don't know about. The problem as to why people ask for this is because popular music is easy to find but as a true listener we don't care if your a new artist or popular artist, "good music is good music" and the best way to find that is by finding each others playlists that are similar to ours so we can once again exchange music to expand our catalog of taste. We can't find this uniqueness in popular playlists because there only focused on whose relevant whether it's good music or not when everyone who uploads music to spotify should be recognized. I have found so many songs on spotify from people i never heard of who i liked just by doing it the hard way which is looking threw so many playlists and similar artists from the one's i already like, the problem with that is it takes so much time and that's why we need these features implemented.


We really need this feature, please implement

Yes! Would make a world of difference for me as a DJ.

Would love to see this feature still. Even more relevant now with the catalog growing and growing


How is this still not a thing!? C'mon Spotify, this needs to be added!


When I search for some songs, playlists appear that have those songs, but I have a playlist with a certain song in it, and searching for that song doesn't show my playlist. Any idea on how to get that done?
