As January 2018, Spotify reported that they had about 70 million paying subscribers. Despite all the people using Spotify today, there’s still quite a bit confusion about how the streaming platform works. In this article, we’ll explore how to make a playlist on Spotify for both curators and artists, how to make joint and collaborative playlists and other various tasks within playlists themselves.
As Spotify continues to expand its playlists, Spotify has said that they want to make enough playlists so that there is a soundtrack to every person’s life. So whether you’re looking for a breakup song playlist or songs by your favorite artist, Spotify encourages every user to build something new.
There are quite a few different kinds playlists on Spotify. Whether you want to create an artist playlist, a regular playlist, or a collaborative playlist with your friends, Spotify has it all.

While anyone can create a Spotify playlist on their own, Spotify has also introduced collaborative playlists back in January 2008. Instead curating your own songs for playlists, Spotify introduced collaborative playlists so that friends can edit the shared playlists as well.
In order to create a joint playlist aka a collaborative playlist, right-click or Ctrl-click on the Mac and select Collaborative Playlist. From there, just copy the link the playlist and send it to a friend. Once your friend clicks on the link, the playlist will open in Spotify and the collaborative playlist is born.
