Tips to copy entire playlists on Spotify

Much of the Spotify user experience revolves around a playlist - a collection of songs created around a certain theme and meaning. Spotify has a ton of playlists to choose from.

If you find a playlist that you really like, but there are a few songs that you want to change, it is completely possible to copy and customize the playlist yourself quite easily.

This is a great way for you to create your own personalized playlists without having to manually compile each song. You can find a pre-made playlist that's close to what you want, then copy and perfect the rest yourself.

The reason for saying it is a trick because Spotify currently does not provide a feature that allows users to 'copy' a playlist directly. Instead, you can just add songs from the playlist you like to a new playlist, as if you have copied that playlist.

First, open the Spotify desktop app or go to the web version and find the playlist you want to copy.

This will create a new playlist with all the songs you selected. By default, the name of this playlist will be named after the first song in the list. Of course, you can also freely change the title and cover image for the playlist just like you would with any other of your personal playlists.

It's all simply that. Now you can delete or add songs to the new playlist as you like.
