Playlist followers count in search API

Playlist followers count in search API


I have integrated spotify API in a sample python application. I just use the search API to search for playlists. I'm getting most of the data from the search API. However to get followers of a playlist I have to call separate API to get playlist details. Is it possible to get followers details (just count is enough like tracks) in search API?

You have to use the Get Playlist endpoint to get information about the followers of a playlist. (You can try it out in the console.)

This is because the mobile, desktop and mobile apps don't provide the functionality (any more) to see the follower count of a playlist in the search results. 


That's what I'm doing currently, but the issue is that if I'm calling 1 API of search giving 20 results of playlist then I have to call 20 APIs to get followers data for each playlist. Or is it possible to call a single API by providing all playlists ID and get their info?

No, I don't know and haven't found a way to get the follower count from multiple playlists at once.
