Can't add songs to collaborative playlist from web version

Can't add songs to collaborative playlist from web version


I started a collaborative playlist so my husband and I could both put songs on it. Neither one of us can figure out how he can add a song to this playlist!


He has a Chromebook so can only use the web version of Spotify and the navigation is not as good as (and different from) what I see using the app for Mac.


I've sent him the playlist link and he can pull it up and play it. But when he wants to add a song and clicks on the elipses, it gives the "add to playlist" option, but then there's no option to add to that playlist, only to create a NEW playlist. You can't search for an existing, collaborative one.  There's no option to add a song while looking at the playlist page itself. 


We are on the Spotify premium family plan. I've checked to make sure that the playlist is collaborative. 


Ugh. Please advise.

Hey @gingerkid! Welcome to the Spotify Community. ^^


Are you still this experiencing this problem?

If yes, be sure to tell him that he needs to follow your playlist in order to add songs to it. ^^
