Why a user cannot find mine while searching?
Hey @jumpthegap, help's here.
The best way to find friends on Spotify is to follow them first. You can check out this help article to learn more about this.
Alternatively, you can just share your profile with these steps.
Hope that helps 🙂
Maybe the playlist you are searching for is not official. So your friend has to change his privacy options to "official".
