Why cant i find my friends playlist on spotify

I'm not sure about the following issue, but one reason you might not be able to see their playlists is that they might have them on "Secret". A Secret playlist is essentially private, so it won't be seen on their profile, and even if you'd search the name of the playlist, it won't be there. Also, there is an option in settings to allow recent artists, playlists, and more to be shown on the profile. Your friends may have that option turned off.

Coming back to spotify after a few months and I'm clearly just missing something but I can't seem to search for playlists or facebook friends. I go to "follow" which seems to be the only sensible option but this brings up only a top bunch of friends wiith a refresh button: showing 6 randomly selected people at a time, which is fairly useless.

In "What's new" there is a playlist selection but that is once again totally unsearchable: just giving top ones near me? Go to Solution. You should be able to search through any playlist made public - that hasn't been removed. Here's what I see when searching "summer" in the search bar:.

Then from there I can click on playlists for a full list of playlists, starting with some of the most popular. View solution in original post. To search for friends, just start typing their name in the box, their profile will be offered as a suggestion under the heading "Users":. As for playlists, just enter the playlist name you are looking for into the search box and hit enter. You should get playlist results at the top as cover artwork and if you click "See All" it will open its own search window.

If this post was helpful, please add kudos below! By design or am I simply just blind? Strange design I might add, if not blind that is Playlists and Users are no longer showing up in my search results as it did before. What's the extent of this problem, or perhaps Spotify has temporarily disabled this "feature"? I suspect that they're doing some sort of maintenance as I'm having problems right now too. Correction, my OWN playlists show up in results, and those created by Spotify And under Users, only a few official artists are showing up, like Sarah Brightman for instance Personally, I think Spotify made a huge mistake when making the user-created playlists public by default.

This must have a gigantic impact on their systems if made searchable I can only guess they had to stop indexing playlists But I must say I'm appalled they still haven't removed the publish-by-default feature Ok, so the users showing up seems to be the persons Spotify thought I should "Follow" when they introduced this new feature Well thank U, now I got it!

I thought I was limited to the Search-suggestions directly in the search-box, but hitting Enter after typing did the trick same as "Show All Results By using our website you agree to our use of cookies in accordance with our cookie policy.

I have had Spotify for a while and have only used it to play and download music for my own pleasure but have a friend who has recently got Spotify. We are going on my stag do in July and I have made a playlist for the hotel room and various trips where we can play our own music. I wanted him to have some input into this playlist so added him as a friend but he cannot see all of my playlists.

In my profile Spotify says: Your public profile. People visiting your profile will be able to see the music you publish. What gives? Go to Solution. View solution in original post.

First of all, your playlists may be set to secretive. On iOS you can check this by clicking the three dots at the top as if you were going to edit the playlist, then making sure that is says "make secret. If that doesn't solve your issue, please let me know, and I would be glad to help out. Although all Spotify's songs and albums are indexed, playlists are not. I guess it's due to the crazy number of playlists and with so many playlists created each day it would take massive resources to index all of them and show them in search.
