How to share a Spotify playlist

Perfect for social media users and bloggers.
April 21, 2023

Everybody likes to share cool finds online — and music is no exception. If you find a great playlist that you need to get your friends listening to, then you’ll want an easy way to share it with them. Here’s how to share a Spotify playlist, whether it’s on the mobile app, desktop, or web player.


To share a Spotify playlist on the Android and iOS app, go to the playlist in question. Tap the three dots next to it and select Share. You can now choose a Spotify URL, a social network, or a messaging app. On the desktop, when you click the three dots, you'll have the option of either copying the link or copying the widget embed code.


How to share a Spotify playlist (Android and iOS)

First, navigate to the playlist you wish to share. Tap the button underneath the title.

You now need to tap Share.

At the bottom of the screen, you’ll now see sharing options. What you see will depend on what phone you have. So you won’t have iOS Messages on Android, for example. If you don’t have WhatsApp installed on your phone, that won’t show up either.

Tap the sharing option you need and follow the on-screen prompts.

The process is virtually identical if you’re accessing Spotify via the desktop app or the web player. Find the playlist you want to share and tap those three dots again.

The playlist link can be used for social media posting or sending via messaging apps. However, if you have your own website, you can embed the playlist using Spotify’s code.
