How to See Who Liked Your Playlist on Spotify?

How to See Who Liked Your Playlist on Spotify?

If you have made a collection of your favorite songs that are popular and likeable, it is likely that you will get followers and likes on your list. Let’s say that you have a great music taste and you take joy in making a collection of classic and hard rock albums, songs, and covers and your Spotify playlists are interesting and likeable, then you are definitely going to get followers on them.

You can make different Spotify playlist for different music genres that the collection of songs or albums fall under. Suppose you want to include all 90s pop songs of Britney, BackStreet boys, and Mariah Carey in a list, you can name it “Best pops of 90s”, and here you have created an interesting list on your account. When you make a list, it appears on your account, giving an idea to others as to how many pop singers were famous back then and for which songs. 

You may get some attention on your list and people may like it, view it, and probably make a list for themselves by choosing the songs that you have put in your Spotify playlist.

When you have a list you start wondering who is following or liking your Playlist and if there’s a way for you to connect with them. 

Lack of Profile Details:

Although we expect Spotify to be open-minded when it comes to displaying the number of followers on a Playlist. The name of individual profiles should be mentioned as well so users can connect with each other.

 When two users seem to have the same interest in music, there is no harm in talking about it on a personal level as it may help both in exploring more of good singers, music and covers that they have not found yet individually.

Exchange of lists can be helpful as well, but unfortunately no such feature can be found on Spotify. One downside of using this music streaming website is that you can simply have followers on your list but never be able to view their details. Perhaps, this is being done as a part of user’s privacy and security. Whatever the case is, lack of this feature is preventing people from socializing with each other and discussing details of music in great detail. 

How to See Who Liked Your Playlist on Spotify?

Depending on the device you use for signing into Spotify you will be able to see who liked or followed your Playlist on Spotify. I will explain it further as how you can do it on different devices. 

Checking from Phone:

  1. Log into your Spotify account using your credentials.
  2. Go to your profile section.
  3. Now open the individual Playlist and you will be able to see how many likes you have there. 
  4. Under the Playlist title you will be able to see the number of likes only, but if you click on the likes you won’t be able to view any details about the individuals who have liked your Spotify Playlist.

Checking from Computer:

  1. First log into your Spotify account from your laptop, Mac computer or PC. 
  2. Go to your Spotify Profile.
  3. Click on any Spotify Playlist, you will be able to see an option followers below it. 
  4. Click on the followers and you will be able to see the total number of people who are following you.
  5. If you click on the followers, you won’t be able to see any details as such on how these followers/individuals are. 

In other words, when you use Spotify on phone it will show followers as like and vice versa. On Computer, your likes are displayed as your followers. So you can either see likes or followers depending on where you have logged into your account from. 

Note: If your Spotify Playlist has zero followers or zero likes, no number will be displayed under the title of the Playlist. Meaning that you have not gained any followers whatsoever. 

Changes in Feature:

Spotify made some crucial changes right after 2013, before that year all Spotify users were able to see who liked their Playlists because the usernames would appear along with the details. It would help the users to follow each other and track down more of the music just to expand their personal knowledge about a particular music genre. But it changed drastically for the users because Spotify completely removed that picture. Now the users can only view how many followers they have on their Spotify playlist and what the total like count is. 

Although almost all users are requesting Spotify to reinstate the feature so they can connect with likeminded people on the network to be able to socialize better yet no updates have come through yet.  Spotify denied all the requests stating that there are no plans yet in place now or in future to reimplement the feature yet. We can assume that this music streaming website may have its own reasons for not reinstating the feature, perhaps it is considered a breach of user’s privacy policy. Whatever it is, we hope that the old feature will be included with better options for users to enable them to connect with like minded music listeners throughout the world.
