Spotify playlists are a major part of people’s daily lives. Whether put together by listeners or artists, playlists can garner a lot of attention — and followers. If you frequently add songs to your playlists and actively monitor your presence on the streaming platform, you might be curious about how to see who follows your Spotify playlists. Let’s dive into that.

Additionally, if you’re keen on maximizing your Spotify experience, you might be interested in discovering the features of the new Spotify Supremium plan.

THE SHORT ANSWER 

Currently, Spotify does not give users the option to see who follows their playlists.

You can see how many users follow or like your playlist. To do this, navigate to your playlist on Spotify and open it. Followers appear as likes next to your name underneath the playlist name.


KEY SECTIONS

Can you see playlist followers or who likes your playlists?

Currently, Spotify does not allow you to see who likes your playlist or follows it. Spotify users used to be able to see who followed their playlists. However, in March 2013, Spotify removed this feature in favor of “listener privacy.”

This has been a hotly debated topic for years, and people first started asking Spotify to return the feature to the app immediately after they removed it. Privacy is always a concern on social media, and even though Spotify is more of a streaming platform, it’s always good to keep tabs on who is following you. If you value your privacy and want this feature to come back, the original Live Idea is still present on the Spotify Community. In 2019, the status for the idea was set to Not Right Now. However, over 25,000 users have voted in favor of this feature and you can vote for it as well.
