My Question or Issue

Hi Community,


When I share one of the common playlist (like "Songs to sing in the car") the person I share the playlist with got a completely other playlist composed. Why? It makes no sence to share a playlist, when the other guy getting something completely different. It is not just in another order, there are completely different songs in it.


So my question, how to share a common/proposed playlist so that the other guy gets exactly the same playlist.


Example:

https://open.spotify.com/playlist/37i9dQZF1DWWMOmoXKqHTD?si=nyVXcvbfTgW3HS8wkh1DxQ


Try it on different accounts, and you will get different songs. wth?

 

Thanks for any advice.


Cheers, Laserstrahl

Hey @Laserstrahl.

 

Thanks for getting back to us!

 

It's possible to share a copy. It's easiest to do this on a computer.

 

Simply create your own playlist and go to the playlist with the songs you like. Select all songs (Ctrl/Cmd+A) and drag all songs into your own playlist. This playlist will stay the way it is.

 

We're trying to create a more personalized experience by having some Spotify playlists change based on the users listening behavior.

 

Hope this answers your question. Let us know if you have further questions.

 

Have a nice day!

Thanks for getting in tough!

 

Certain Spotify playlists vary per person. We base this on what the user listens to so we can create a playlist that fits even beter :)

Okay, but so it makes no sence to share such a playlist to be honest.

 

Is there a way to create some kind of copy of such a playlist, and share this copy?

 

--> When I share a playlist I want that the other guy will have exactly the same playlist. Otherwise you could just disable that option at all...

 

Please let me know how to achieve this!
