Hints & Tips – Drop down arrows

Almost every week there’s a feature or function in Spotify that I learn about which I didn’t know existed. I’m sure a lot of others have the same experience so I’m going post useful tips once and awhile so you can get the most out of Spotify. If there’s a specific feature or function you want to know more about let us know and we’ll put together a post in the future.

Today I wanted to point out drop down arrows. You’ll usually find them in two places; either when searching for tracks or in the artists view. When searching for music we combine different versions of the same track name and display the most popular one. If you’re looking for a different version you can click the drop down arrow to the right of the track name to reveal all the versions available.

One track


Multiple Tracks

There are also drop down arrows next to some album names. If an album has a censored version or a radio edit we combine them and add the drop down arrow.


Clicking it will show all versions of that album that we have.

Help fight cancer, grow a mustache


Did you know you can help fight cancer by growing a mustache? Spotify is supporting the Swedish Cancer Society’s campaign to fight the most common form of cancer in Sweden – prostate cancer. Along with our support, celebrities such as Swingfly, MotoBoy and Bert Karlsson have created playlists to help for the cause.

For more information head over to the Cancerfonden website and start growing those nose socks, lip warmers and Fu Manchus to help battle cancer.
