How do I see someone else's made for you (soft pop hits) playlist? I had the link shared with me but it just came up with my own personalised playlist.

Hi @lexichin, thanks for writing!


Currently, there are three types of playlists in Spotify:


Personalized playlists - they’re created by algorithms that look at lots of external and individual factors (they are different for each user), including what the listener is listening to and when, which songs they're adding to their playlists, the listening habits of people who have similar tastes, and much more.

For some personalized playlists, Spotify editors start the process by picking the original pool of songs for the algorithms to select from.

You can tell it’s a personalized playlist because of the byline 

Made for [username].


Popular personalized playlists include:

  • Discover Weekly
  • Release Radar
  • Indie Mix
  • On Repeat
  • Repeat Rewind
  • Happy Hits
  • Songs to Sing in the Shower

Editorial playlists

There are thousands of editorial playlists. Spotify mark all their editorial playlists with just a Spotify logo in the byline.

They’re curated by playlist editors. Their editors are genre, lifestyle, and culture specialists with diverse backgrounds. Many playlists have several editors in different locations to find music from all around the world.

Listener playlists

Over the years, Spotify listeners have created millions of playlists.

They’re a great way to understand your fans, get a sense of how your music resonates, and how your reach has grown.

They can influence other playlists, too. When fans save music to their playlists, it shows what they like and what to recommend.
