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?
Solved! Go to Solution.
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.

Have a nice day!
Edit, the play list queue is found in the right lower conrer today. So your previously played songs are available this way:
1. Click on queue "icon in the lower right corner on the desktop version".
2. Click history
Now you see all your previously played songs and if you played last weks songs then they should be available there.
This happened to me today and I didn't read all the replies to this, but there's another way in the event that your other devices wasn't on the same playlist or the history has been whiped.
~ Go to your profile
~ Click on recently played artists
~ It'll only show the artist and not the song so you'll have to go on their page and find the song. Most of the time, you can just click play and it'll play the highest rated song which could be the same one on the playlist.
Even though it won't show the song and only the artsit, you're still a lot closer than before. If somebody already said this then don't pay attention to me XD
I had the same issue, so I recently created a tool to start archiving my playlists. I hope it helps you too! https://rocketgraph.com/reports/21-discover-weekly-archiver
This is my archive if you want to see how it looks like https://rocketgraph.com/s/gI8ZSecCCsY
I was on a mission to find the songs that where on the playlist! There is one way of saving/recovering this if you have Spotify on multiple devices, I tested this on a PC on a Monday afternoon when the playlist changed. (I did not power on my computer yet)
You can only do this if you have not turned on your computer when the playlist changed. Since it syncs playlists when Spotify starts up.
1) Start up your computer. (If you have an ethernet cord- Unplug it before you start up.)
2) QUICKLY turn off you WIFI before Spotify boots up. (If Spotify starts before you turn off your WIFI, there is a very high chance you have already lost the playlist)
3) Start up Spotify (if it didnt already)
4) Go to your "Discovery Weekly" playlist. The songs should be all faded out due to no internet connection.
5) Check the songs you want to keep, just check all of them incase you dont remember which ones. (go through them later)
6) Checked songs should be added to Your Music > Songs list.
6) Feel free to turn on WIFI or plug back in at this point.
7) BOOM! RECOVERED! ENJOY!
Hope this helps.
Hey @frankfu1122 and all the other fellow spotify listeners.
I created a small tool that comes in two flavours, in order to archive and EXPORT your discover weekly playlists
Here is a video for it
Here is a sample version of the free version, with data over the past 7 weeks https://rocketgraph.com/s/kNIy-ktkrop
You can find the tool here
Free version: https://rocketgraph.com/reports/36-spotlist-spotify-discover-weekly-archiver
Premium version: https://rocketgraph.com/reports/37-spotlist-spotify-discover-weekly-archiver-premium
Let me know if you have any comments / suggestions so I can improve it
Have a nice day
Best solution if you have listened to a song you have lost THANK YOU SOOOOOO MUCH
Hi guys. I have the same problem. Last week my weekly playlist sent by Spotify was really good but unfortunately I didn't saved it! And now its lost.. I've been looking for a way to recover it, also thanks to this forum but didn't managed. CAn somebody help me? I was listening to the playlist from my phone and I can't look back at the recent songs I've listed to. It seems as if tehre is no more track of any of the songs played through that playlist.. Does anybody have an idea of what I can do? Thank you so much in advance! Love spotify but sometimes.....
hi Benjmin. i'm trying to back up my spotify weekly playlist (of last week) through the link you just sent, but I just can't understand how to do it.. Can you help me out? thanks! xxx
It doesn't seem to work for me... no songs were added to my playlist. So, are there any other solutions?
If you are looking for something user friendly, try this https://rocketgraph.com/reports/21-discover-weekly-archiver
This is by far the most elegant solution.
Just fingers crossed Spotify doesn't change their API's too frequently 🙂
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
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?
perfect! that worked for me! thanks
You guys should really fix this...I don't have time to save playlists or make new ones every week, just let me see the old ones for like a few months or a year. Thanks.
This way of saving the list with IFTTT, can you tell me more about it? Do you have to install something on your computer? Is it safe? (I managed to destroy my last computer by installing weird stuff on my Apple computer, and I don't want to do it again)
