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

Status: Live Idea

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. 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!

For example, I have monthly playlists, when I'm on a song, I am currently unable to tell if "this song" is already in one of them. If yes, In which one(s)?


I would really like this feature.  I make a new playlist every month or two and I would love to be able to search for a specific song across all MY playlists.


i also felt the need for this functionality so i created a web app called

- this web app will allow you to search across your playlists for a track or artist or album (search tab).

- this web app will allow you to search across your playlists for duplicates (duplicates tab).

- this web app is a set of tools to make curating your playlists a bit easier.

- it is free and open source

hope this helps


At this point I am begging you, Spotify.

Please add this feature!

I'm sure there are many users like me that curate a ton of playlists and then as time goes back you remember 'oh hey, I'm pretty sure I had this great song on a few playlists last year. I wonder which ones they were'

Also to avoid overusing songs in multiple playlists. 



I'd be happy if there was at least a simple indicator (just like the favorite heart) showing you a song is in one of your playlists. Perhaps that could lead somehow to a list of playlists, but at least a simple indicator would be helpful to begin.


When you right-click on a song, you can see in which playlist(s) you have added the song to. This option exists in iTunes : "Show in Playlist"


I wish Spotify cared about their playlist feature


Please implement the original idea - it's very frustrating not knowing if a song is already in playlists




In iTunes, you can right-click on a song and see which of my playlists the song is in.


Especially for people like me who have a lot of playlists and also make an effort to maintain them, this would be a great feature.
In general, I would appreciate it if there were more advanced tools for managing playlists in Spotify.

Hola Spotify,


This suggestion was made 2 years, 4 months, and 10 days ago and was and it was then sent to your "internal teams" 1 year, 1 month, and 19 days ago. How much longer will it take for you to add a tick next to the dropdown list of playlists when write clicking on a track?


How long will it take to modify an already existing feature?


Thank you,

Xico Pérez
