Having the right music for the right occasion is essential. But, that can easily be corrected by creating a Spotify playlist for the gym, home, and other situations. The good news is that creating a Spotify playlist is beginner-friendly and doesn’t take long.
Sharing your Spotify playlist is also easy, as well as moving around the order of the songs. With a few clicks here and there, you can create as many playlists as you want.
How to Create a Spotify Playlist on Android
To create a playlist, go the app’s Your Library tab at the bottom, the Create playlist option will be the first one at the top.
Spotify will give you the chance of adding a name to your playlist. If you don’t want to name your playlist, you’ll see an option to skip this step. But, by naming your playlist, you give Spotify the chance to recommend songs for you. For example, you call your playlist Happy, Spotify will only recommend songs that it thinks will cheer you up.
After completing these steps, your playlist will be a thing of the past, and it will be time to add some songs to your newly created playlist.
Tap on the Add Songs button and Spotify will show you suggested songs it thinks you might like to add. If you see one that you like, tap on the plus sign to the right.
By swiping right, you will see more suggested music for different genres. To avoid adding a song you’re not going to like, you can hear a preview of the song by tapping on the play icon.
If you don’t see any song you want to add, you can use the search bar to search for more music options. Keep in mind that as soon as you add a song, the options seen in the image above will disappear. But, not to worry since Spotify will still show you Recommended Songs right below your newly added song.
