Hello @JShepherd42!

 

Right now, it's not possible to access old "Made for You" playlists like Discover Weekly. However, you should be able to view your recently played songs in the Home page of your Spotify app. If you'd like to be able to view old Discover Weekly playlists I'd recommend you add your votes and comments to this idea.

 

Hope this helps and let me know if there's anything else I can help with 🙂

If you play a song from Discover Weekly, it doesn't show up in your recently played songs. This isn't a legit solution.

Unfortunately, this doesn't actually work because even if you "liked" a song from the previous week, it doesn't show up in your list of "liked" songs. So...no solution.

Hey everyone,

 

Just wanted to jump in here with some additional info.

 

As @Jose_M already pointed out, currently there is no option to access your previous Discover Weekly playlists. If this is a feature you're interested in, you should consider adding your VOTE to the idea he has linked to in his post.

 

With that said, if you wish to keep a specific playlist that was Made for You, you can either create a new playlist and add all the tracks to it or you can "like" any song to save it to your Liked Songs playlist in Your Library.

 

There are several ways to retrieve your recent listening History depending on the device you've been using. You can check out this article on our support website for the steps on the desktop app.

 

The listening history is not synchronized across devices but, if you've only been using Spotify on your mobile, there's a way to see what songs you've listened to most recently:

 

  1. Open a Playlist, that you created yourself.
  2. Tap on "Add songs" on the top of your Playlist.
  3. Go to "Suggested" and then swipe left until your "Recently played" appear.

We hope you'll find this info useful. Feel free to reach out whenever you have other questions!

This is incredible (finding history on mobile). This is the only solution that has EVER worked for me, and I've been googling this every once in awhile for years. Thank you. Also whyyyy is "recent history" so insanely hidden on mobile? How did you even find this? Ridiculous.

I think Spotify should definitely create this kind of a feature. 

The problem is that you never know when the list suddenly changes completely (to rubbish) and there is no going back after has happened.

 

You can request your old listening data for the last year in your profile section but that takes ages (they say up to 30 days!) to receive.

Hello. When I go to my playlists that I created, there's not a feature to "Add Songs". There's only "Shuffle Play" and Recommended Songs below.

 

How do I find this Add songs feature? Thank you for your help.

Hey @tinyswag92

 

It looks like your question is unrelated to this topic. Could you create a new topic?

 

Thanks!
