Power Up with Playlists

Simply put, a playlist is a collection of tracks grouped together and saved for easy access. The modern day mix tape, you can create a playlist for anywhere and anytime! Whip up some tuneful inspiration for your road trips, workouts, or even workdays. Get started by clicking on the “+New Playlist” in the left column. A single playlist can store up to 10,000 tracks, if you have the time or inclination.

With Spotify, compiling playlists is as easy as drag and drop. Just click on the song you like and drag it into your playlist! Each new playlist is saved to your account, and will be accessible from wherever you use Spotify.

Best yet, you can share your playlists with friends. With a simple right click (or control click for Mac), you can post playlists to your social sites and share your tunes with friends.
