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

Hey there,

 

Thanks for your question. We're happy to help.

 

Unfortunately it's not possible to recover your Discover Weekly. What you can do is put the songs in a playlist as soon as it's updated, that way you can listen to them later - even if there is already a new one 🙂

 

If this is something that you'd like to see in the future, you can also consider adding your +VOTE and feedback to support this idea.

 

The Idea Exchange is a great way for us to see what our users are interested in and how many people like a certain idea. You can read more about it here.

 

Have a nice day!

I downloaded the applette as per previous post, and sometimes it does not save my weekly playlists. Last week`s was awesome, and I wanted to download it today, but the new list just updated.

Is there a history button somewhere that I can see the songs I played? I must have listened to that playlist 10 times and I loved it.

"Empty: you have no songs in history"

 

Well I guess that the history is stored locally on the device but, sadly, on Windows Phone there is no "History" button.

Why there are so many differences between different devices?

Dear Spotify.... 

 

PLEASE create a new functionality that allows you to go back to your weekly wishlist. Its an intuitive thing to expect and then search for.  Please get your briliant team to add this one in the next update! 

 

Your loyal customer and music lover!

Recovery is not a difficult task. If you download Android Data Recovery, it will make it easy. With the help of this program, you are able to recover deleted music files on Android devices conveniently and quickly.

If you have your spotify synced up with your facebook, you can go to your 'Activity Log' and it should be there 🙂

Hello,

I hope someone can help me, I've subscribed to the Canadian Country playlist by Spotify, which gets updated every week.
I remember listening to a song around the end of July, all I remember is the cover, a female artist, blonde locks (more like the old T. Swift), cat eyes & the cover had a blue-ish background.

If anyone remembers or even has a Rocketgraph of this playlist in July, I'd be grateful!

Hi,

 

Just a quick headsup, I just released discover-backup.com, which exactly does this.

It has some more features than the IFTTT-Rule, e.g different backup methods.

 

Some more info: Thread on Spotify

 

Thanks,

Johnny
