Featured playlists limited to 10

Newbie

The docs here state:

 

 

limit	Optional. The maximum number of items to return. Default: 20. Minimum: 1. Maximum: 50.

 

 

 however, only 10 are returned for Featured playlists as tested at https://developer.spotify.com/console/get-featured-playlists/. Is this an issue with the API, or my understanding of the documentation?

Hey @Cassock, help's here!

 

Good question! - Spotify only features a limited number of playlists for a certain moment on the day. In the API call you set a limit of maximum of 50 playlists to be returned, but this is also limited by the amount of playlists that are featured by Spotify for that moment on the day. It sounds like there are just 10 playlists featured at the moment when you made the API call.

 

If you're looking to show more playlists, you can also use the category playlists here: https://developer.spotify.com/documentation/web-api/reference/browse/get-categorys-playlists/. Let me know if you have any questions!

Have a good one,
