Customization of playlists (cover and description box)

Status: Under Consideration
by Jimmylqd on ‎27-11-2012 09:03 PM

Hello, Spotify Community! 


One of the things I enjoy about Spotify, is that I get to share music I enjoy, with people all around the world. But how great would it be if it was possible to customize your playlists, to make it your very own. And it doesn't necessary need a lot of advanced or fancy stuff, just your picture of choice for the cover (instead of 4 album covers from your tracklist) and a description box, would be enough to make it kind of original (and make it easier for people to know what kind of music the playlist will include/what it's made for etc.). 


Here's an illustration of how I imagine the customization being put to use:




Let me hear what you think of it, and give it some kudos if you feel like doing so. :)


Have a good one,

Just a little idea without huge importance :

Why not the possibility of changing our playlist's avatars ?

For example,  click on the image, a "browse..." appears, and we choose the image we want.

The functionality is already there but is not open for regular users, probably due to legal things.

@krikelin - OP is about Playlist avatars, not forum avatars

by Stadium Filler on ‎30-05-2012 07:20 PM

Pla<ylist avatars are available for commercial accounts like record labels etc.

A simpler solution: Let users choose wich 4 album covers will be the playlist avatar.

I like this idea, and annuschka's followup suggestion too.


User-created playlists are Spotify's primary strength. Anything that allows further customization and personalization to reinforce that strength and encourage or aid sharing is a good thing.

even if just for local playlists that'd be super helpful. I really dont like a stupid movie cover for a rock playlist.

This is a perfect idea! <3

Allow users to custommize the artwork displayed for Playlists in the same way record labels and aggregators do.

This is an awesome idea. Does anyone know how companies get this permission?
