How to share liked songs on Spotify

Spotify, a widely used music streaming service, offers an extensive collection of music, podcasts, and audiobooks for its users. Among its features, the ‘Liked Songs’ feature allows users to curate a special collection of their favorite tracks for convenient access.

Many users wish to share their ‘Liked Songs’ with their friends and family. However, Spotify lacks a built-in feature to directly share these liked songs. They are organized within a folder, not a playlist. To share your liked songs, you must first create a new playlist and add them to it.

How to Share Liked Songs on Spotify

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to share your ‘Liked Songs’ by creating a playlist. The most effective method is using the desktop or web player.

Step 1: Create a New Playlist

Creating New Playlist in Spotify

Access Spotify via the desktop app or web player and sign in to your account. Create a new playlist and give it a suitable name. You can find the ‘Create Playlist’ option on the left sidebar.

Step 2: Transfer Liked Songs to the New Playlist

Adding Liked Songs to the New Playlist

Locate your ‘Liked Songs’ folder, which is just below the ‘Create a Playlist’ option. Click on it. To add your liked songs to the new playlist, you can either select a liked song and drag it to the new playlist in the left sidebar or choose a song, click on the three dots (or right-click), and select ‘Add to Playlist.’

For multiple selections, hold down ‘CTRL’ (or ‘CMD’ for MacOS) while selecting songs and drag them to the new playlist. To share all ‘Liked Songs,’ select the first song and hold ‘CTRL + A’ (or ‘CMD + A’ for MacOS) and move them to the new playlist. Refer to our guide on adding multiple songs to a playlist.

Step 3: Share Your Playlist

By following the above steps, you can easily share your liked songs and enjoy music with others.
