how to organize your playlists in folders


On Spotify there are many ready-made playlists that are good and we ended up adding several to our library in the app, not to mention the ones we put together on our own. Considering that there are already many playlists, the platform has implemented a folder system to help users better organize their music.

The folder creation feature for playlists is only available for the web version and desktop app. However, it is likely that Spotify will soon bring the functionality to mobile apps (Android and iOS) as well.

Spotify: how to organize your playlists into folders

Check out the step-by-step guide below to organize your playlists in folders in the Spotify desktop application or in the platform’s web version (access through browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Safari, Opera, among others).

Step 01: On the home screen, there will be a column on the left side of the screen. Note that just below the “Your episodes” option, there is a list of playlists that you can scroll to view all the ones you have saved in your app library.
