My Question or Issue
I am using the desktop windows 10 and mobile Android app - and on all platforms the option to make a playlist collaborative has disappeared, please help get it back.
It is only showing option to invite collaborator but when I add my friends as collaborator they are unable to add songs to the playlist.
We were able to join both of your playlists as collaborators and add a song to them. This all seems to work as intended.
Are you sure whoever you're sending the links to are opening them properly? We might have a hunch what's going on. If the links are opened from a browser on the desktop, the browser might default to loading up the Web Player. There should be a prompt to launch Spotify, but depending on how the browser is set up it might not appear or it can be dismissed. Keep in mind that the collaborative functions aren't supported on the Web Player, and only work on our desktop and mobile apps. Joining should still be triggered, but once you join a playlist, you need to go to the apps to modify them.
The best way to avoid any confusion is for the links to be opened up on a mobile device with the Spotify app installed.
