How to Add Multiple Songs to a Playlist on Spotify - Tutorial

January 10, 2021

Spotify playlists are a great way to organize all your music the way you want, so that you can find all your favorite songs much faster and easier. This article will show you how to add multiple songs to a playlist on Spotify. There are two ways of doing it!

What is a playlist?

The playlist is a kind of virtual folder which you can name and in which you can keep all your favorite songs, without limit of quantity. The playlist is the new compilation!

A playlist can be unique, like "Rock FM 80's", "Spring 2018", or for a particular moment, "Zen evening". In the Spotify app, you can easily find all your playlists, rearrange them, modify, delete, and, of course, listen to them. Playlists are accessible from anywhere and on any device as long as you log in to your account. For example, you will find the same playlists when you open Spotify on your smartphone or PC. You can create a dozen playlists if you want! However, it would be best if you gave each of them a name to find them later.

How to create a Spotify playlist

First, find the "File" button at the top of the app, and then click the "New playlist" button. Or if you use Mac, you can use keyboard shortcut Command + N. You can also just click on the "New playlist" button at the bottom left.

The next step is giving your playlist a title. You can also add a description and a photo.

Your new playlist is now visible at the top of the overview on the left, and it's ready to be filled with songs! You can create as many playlists as you want.

How to select and add multiple songs to a playlist

By using this method, you can add multiple songs at the same time. It's a great shortcut, but it works only on the desktop app. While holding down the CTRL key (CMD key if you're using a Mac), you can mark the songs with the left mouse button. Then, drag and drop the songs to a chosen playlist or do a right click. In the menu, choose "Add to playlist".

To select all songs, hold CTRL/CMD + A. Then, drag and drop them to a chosen playlist or do a right click and choose "Add to playlist". This will be helpful when you want to add a playlist to another playlist on Spotify.

  2. Click this button and then give your playlist a name, for example, "The best songs of 2021".
  3. Once you've created a playlist, you can add songs to it.
  4. If you know the song, you want to add, just search for it using the search bar.
  5. Click a "+" icon next to the song to add it to your playlist.
  6. The playlist will be available in your library all the time, waiting for new songs.
