Discover Weekly - how to recover last week's playlist?

Hi,

 

It's Monday morning and Spotify has just gave me a "fresh" release of my Discover Weekly playlist.

 

I did however enjoy last week's too and would love to be able to save it, but I've forgotten the artists and song names.

 

Is there a way to recover it? I wasn't able to find it in the history or anything as the playlist is owned by Spotify?

 

Thanks

 

Frank

For computers:

Hi guys, you can retrieve the song you listened to through your song history.

 

Go to the bottom right hand side and click on the 3 horizontal lines. This should bring up your play queue. There is a history button beside it, and you can view all the songs you have listened to. You can retrieve your songs from the list. Hope this helps!

I made a simple tool that will automatically make a copy of your discover weekly playlist and save it to your Spotify, every Friday, in only one click (no need to setup an IFTTT account).

 

Rediscover - Spotify Discover Weekly Playlist Archiver

 

Once you connect it to Spotify, you don't have to do anything else and the copied version will just show up automatically each week! Please let me know if there are any issues or missing features on twitter: @rileytomasek

I have clicked save song but I have no idea where they go?!  I can't find them on any playlist at all , it's driving me nuts! And I can't find my history either for some reason, I am on my new iPad Pro , so is there no way to see history or is it hidden?

What is your spotify name so i can find your discover weekly playlist?

You don't wanna use mine--I think the rule's set up so once you authorize Spotify with IFTTT, you should be able to just put in "Discover Weekly", and then whatever playlist you made to keep all the songs in.

Hi zachthejoke777

 

It wouldn't help finding anyone elses discover playlist as they are tailored unique to the individual and so what you like in music is most probably different to other people!

 

hope that helps

its hardly pointless... that stuff could just automatically save as a personal playlist for each person, saving them the trouble of doing it themselves every week

 

maybe a feature for premium? would be sweet

Hey FuzzyLuke,

 

Think you misunderstand by what I mean as pointless...

People on this thread who forgot to save the discovery playlist are asking others to post the playlist up on here thinking it will contain their songs. But becuase it is unique it will only be the other persons songs....so someone liking folk may get death metal!

 

and yes, I think it would be good to automatically save (or maybe have a option in the settings for this).

 

cheers

Would you mind putting up a list of songs from that playlist please so can add to our own? Thanks 🙂

If your Spotify account is linked to your Facebook account you can review your Activity Log and see what songs you played. I was able to jot down the songs and save them to a new Spotify playlist. 

 

Hope this helps.

I was just curious what Spotify gave you, but thank you to whomever recommended turning off wifi immediately on laptop and looking there! Found the list and then recreated it on my phone.

I've just had the same thing and I'm gutted - absolutley loved my playlist last week and for some reason can't see any of the tracks on my queue history. Has anyone experienced the same and know why?

Mine did not show up in the history queue either, so I had to click on my profile name in the upper right hand of Spotify, and then click 'Recently Played Artists'. It only shows the artists, but I went to each artist and found the songs that were on mine. They were all in the Top 5 of each artist so it's not that hard. Best of luck to you!

I went through my facebook activity and I believe i have most of the songs now in a new playlist that i have made public. "Best of Discover Weekly".

I had exactly the same question this morning when last week's vanished. I think what I needed to do was to copy all the songs from that playlist into a new one, since that one's dynamically updated by Spotiy. Stinks though that everything from last week is gone, I really liked my playlist and also don't remember most of the artists.

Maybe if I go through my play history I can piece it back together, if only the desktop program recorded my play across all platforms....

I think in the Desktop versions (Windows and Mac), you can view "History" after clicking into "Play Queue".

 

This feature doesnt exist in iOS though (not sure about Android)

 

Good luck

Right, I just checked my Spotify History tab and had to scroll back a bit, as I already listened to the 30 tracks this morning. But they are listed there as expected, it can take some time to load that very long History list though.

can you scroll back further than 30? I don't see a way to do that. I'm dying to find a song that was on last week's discover, but i fell asleep to a different playlist last night, so the song is already off my history.
