Organise your playlists using folders
Spotify has a desktop and web feature, “Create a folder” which will save you the hassle of finding the perfect playlist. All you have to do is group similar playlists together for easy access. You can organise them by the decade, by the genre or by the mood. All you have to do is go to the desktop app or web player, right-click a playlist, create a folder and give it a name.
Keep your music library fresh
That playlist you made last year when you decided you are only going to listen to UK drill music from just one obscure producer? It might just need an update. If you have Spotify Premium, you can just tap the Énhance” button at the top of the playlist to let the app suggest personalised song additions that match the other songs on the playlist. This uses Spotify’s algorithm to automatically add recommended songs that match what you already like.
