How to organize your spotify library

Spotify, these days has become the first choice of music lovers among all the music streaming apps to listen to their favorite music. With millions of songs available to stream and download, spanning across hundreds of genres, artists, countries, and languages, Spotify can help you create the best music library of your preference.

How to organize your spotify library

But, forming a music library is one thing; keeping it organized is another. I, for one, am a terrible organizer in this case. I have like more than 500 songs in my Spotify My Music, and all I do is Play All and keep skipping songs to get to my preferred one. However, if your library is organized, you can keep a neat database of your favorite songs, which are easy to locate, retrieve, and listen to without skipping through fifty songs before you get to it.

Here’s how to keep your music library organized in Spotify music streaming service:

How to Organize Spotify Library

Organizing a Spotify library can be a tough task. Since now there’s no limit of songs you can save in your library, the whole process becomes a bit complicated. Since users find their favorite songs searching through multiple playlists, artists list, albums, and single tracks, you must streamline the Spotify library.

1. Saving Songs and Albums

You can save your music by either saving single tracks or the entire albums.

  • To Save a Song:

Saving a song is one of the easiest ways to have an organized library filtered by your favorite songs on your Spotify account. To save a song on Spotify, click the “Heart” button adjacent to the left of the Title of the Track in any playlist. The Heart button acts like a Like Song button. The song is then added to your library into an automatically created playlist called “Liked Songs”. This creates an organized list of your recent favorites.

You can also right-click on a song and then click on Save to your Liked Songs to save a song in your Spotify Music Library.

  • To Save an Albums:

In case, you find an entire album great enough to listen to on loop; you can go ahead and save an entire album. Just like I did with Linkin Park’s 2012 album Living Things. All you need to do is click on another “Heart” button. But not the one adjacent to the track. On the album page, you’ll find the album name along with a Heart button near it. Once you click on it, the album will be saved.

And this won’t save the songs in the Liked Songs playlist. You can access the liked album in the Albums section on Spotify.

2. Following Artists

Following artists is another method of having an organized music library. Several artists are always on your favorite lists no matter what song they release and no matter what is the general public and critic reaction. You can either find your favorite artists via the Search menu, or you can find them in the Artists section in the Spotify app or website. You can also head to Go to Artists tab after a right-click over any song.

How to organize your spotify library

Once on your preferred Artists page, click on the Follow page and that particular button will change to Following. This will add the following artist at the top of the Artists section of your Spotify account. Through that, you can access any song of that particular artist and then can also add some individual songs to the Liked Songs playlist.

Having a Spotify Premium account can also let you download the songs of that artist.

3. Create Playlists and Create Folders

Now here is the part of getting self-creative and self-organized. Spotify allows users to make their playlists and organize the music library cluttered with more than a hundred songs on your Spotify account. You can then create folders to make up a more organized music library.

  • To Create a Playlist:

To create a playlist, right-click on a song and then click on Add to Playlist. Give your playlist a name and then keep on adding songs related to it to organize one kind or genre of music in an organized manner.

How to organize your spotify library

You can also create a playlist from the left-side pane of the Spotify account on the web. There you’ll find an option to Create Playlist. You can then add songs to that created playlist according to whatever name you’ve given to it. I, for one, prefer creating playlists via Artists’ name to keep all songs organized per my favorite artists.

  • To Create Folders:

Folders are sub-playlists that you can create to organize your playlists further. For example, you have created a playlist by your artist’s name. Now, you can further create folders to divide the songs inside it in different folders sorted by the album names, new/old songs, remixes, and artist collaborations.

How to organize your spotify library

This way, you can create a more organized music library with playlists and folders keeping all tracks in different ones to help you retrieve them quickly and even share them properly and even get your followers by making your well-organized playlists collaborative.

4. Temporary Playlist

It’s just forming a rotation playlist where you can temporarily add favorite songs as you discover new music on Spotify. You can then add these newly added songs to their specified playlist per the genre, album, or artist.

Spotify has one of the biggest online music libraries accessible for free. And it can be pretty messy when you organize it. Using these methods, you can always keep your favorite songs and even the newly discovered gems in such a way that they are easily retrievable and you don’t have to rely on long shuffles before you get there.

Organizing your library on Spotify seems daunting, especially if you have a big collection. Here’s how to keep your music organized on the streaming service.

The Spotify Library

Nearly everyone uses a streaming service to play music nowadays, with the most popular being Spotify. Hundreds of millions of people around the world use Spotify to listen and save music.

The company recently lifted its saved songs limit of 10,000 tracks, so you can now create a huge comprehensive library of all your favorite music. However, Spotify’s organization features can be quite confusing. Between artists, albums, playlists, folders, and liked tracks, it can be challenging to figure out exactly where to find that song you have on your mind.

Here are ways to streamline your Spotify library to make finding your favorite music easier.

Saving Songs and Albums

There are two ways of saving music to your library: saving songs and saving albums.

Saving songs simply means clicking the heart next to a track on Spotify Desktop and Web, or long-pressing a song and liking it on mobile.

How to organize your spotify library

This song will be added to your library and will appear on the “Liked Songs” playlist, a default playlist that includes every track you’ve added a heart to. Like any playlist, you can set Liked Songs to download any new songs that are added automatically.

How to organize your spotify library

The second way to add music is by saving an album. To do this, go to an album page on Spotify, and click the heart button next to the album name. This will save the entire album, which can be accessed in the “Albums” tab on Spotify.

How to organize your spotify library

This method will not add all the songs from the album to your Liked Songs. However, you can still like your favorite individual tracks to add them to the automatic playlist.

Following Artists

After you’ve saved several tracks and albums, you should then follow artists behind these songs. To find artists you should follow, you can either search for them or use one of the suggestions that appear on the “Artists” tab on the mobile app. You can also right-click or long-press any song or album in your library, and select “Go to Artist.”

How to organize your spotify library

When you’re on the artist’s page, select the “Follow” button below their name, and this button should change to “Following.” This will add the artist to your “Artists” tab on Spotify. Clicking on their name will show every song and album you have saved from that artist. If you’re subscribed to Spotify Premium, you will also be able to download all the songs you have saved from any given artist.

Making Playlists and Folders

The last way of organizing your music is by making good use of playlists and folders. Between your playlists and other peoples’ playlists that you follow, there’s a good chance you tens or even hundreds of music lists cluttering up your account.

To keep them all organized, make good use of folders. To create a folder, right-click on your Playlist collection on the left-hand menu, then select “Create Folder.”

How to organize your spotify library

Folders allow you to sort your playlists by genre, mood, era, or purpose. For example, a “Work Music” folder might have anything ranging from classical music to ambient noise. While you can only create folders on Spotify for Desktop, they can still be viewed on the mobile app. You can also create playlists within folders on your phone.

You can also use several sorting options for playlists. By default, it’s set to “Custom Order,” which is the order you have them sorted on Desktop. You can also sort them alphabetically or by recency.

If you’re using Spotify Desktop, you can also play music from the entire folder by selecting it. If you have a Rock folder with different playlists from various subgenres of rock, clicking “Play” on the folder shuffles all of the songs from all the playlist.

Good Organization Habits

How to organize your spotify library

Our final tip is to use special playlists. If you frequently listen to new songs and new artists but don’t have the time to keep your library organized constantly, it’s good practice to save them into a “Rotating Playlist.” Whenever you discover a new song, add it to this temporary list. Then you can decide later which of your actual playlists they’ll go into.

After you’ve liked the song, artist, or album, and added it to your playlists, delete it from the rotation. This way, you don’t miss out on any underrated gems that you might forget.

How to organize your spotify library

This is a guide for always having the right music for any kind of moment in your life. It’s based on my own preferences, but you should be able to easily adapt it to your liking.

If one wanted to get technical, one could say this guide turns Spotify Playlists from Folders-like things into Tag-like things. Sound good to me.

Create a playlist called “New”. Whenever you stumble upon a cool song put it into this “New” playlist — this is something you’ll be routinely doing.

Clean it up monthly.

Every month, r e name this playlist to e.g. “March ‘18”. Then create a new playlist called “New”. (I actually do this only every few months.)

How to organize your spotify library

Here’s the list of the folders you should create, and the playlists that should be created inside them. Take this suggestion and adapt to your liking.

Folder: Situation.

  • Laid Back;
  • Surfing;
  • Working.

Folder: Speed.

  • Intense;
  • Smooth;
  • Relax.

Folder: Feeling.

  • Love;
  • Introspection;
  • Feel good.

Folder: Genre

  • Erudite;
  • Indie;
  • Funk / Soul.

Every now and then you’ll want to incorporate new songs (in the “New” playlist) into the existing system.

1. Open the Playlist Manager.

Go to https://playlist-manager.com (open source), and log in with your Spotify Account.

Alternatively you could deploy your own, if you don’t want to trust the maintainer of the project.

2. Select “New” and the Playlists under the folder “Situation”.

This will allow you to see new songs side by side with playlists.

How to organize your spotify library

3. “Tag” songs with Playlists.

You can see in the screenshot above that I hadn’t tagged any song yet — i.e. hadn’t added to any of the Playlists.

You should go song by song, top down. For each row, you should click the plus sign (+) in at least one of the columns — adding the song to the Playlist.

How to organize your spotify library

I generally try to have MECE Playlists, but do allow for exceptions — no problem.

4. Rinse and repeat.

Repeat steps 1–4 for every one of the Folders we created before.

Now you have a fully organized Playlist structure, which allows you to find the right song for the moment.

Naturally, keeping your Playlists tidied up is an ongoing effort — they require maintenance.

I have used this structure for 2 years now and had no complaints. I used to do it manually, but having found Playlist Manager simplified it so much I decided it was worth sharing it with the world.

How to organize your spotify library

Let us help you organize your Spotify account.

This post is part of Mashable’s Spring Cleaning Week. Just a little something to distract you from the eternal dread of constantly wiping all those fingerprints off your screen.

It’s really easy for your Spotify account to become one helluva cluster.

Sometimes you’re really feeling particularly rowdy and you need to bump the latest stylings of Cardi B while hitting the milly rock during your mid-morning commute. Sometimes you need to turn your grocery run into an adventure by moonwalking down an aisle while listening to Bruno Mars. Sometimes, you really just need to ugly cry into your palms while listening to a Jessie Reyez and Daniel Caesar collaboration.

Sometimes, you just want to listen to bad music.

All that being so, it’s real easy for your Spotify account to become a minefield of erroneous playlists, haphazardly added local files and poorly organized libraries. All of which don’t really go together and eventually build up to such a mess that it’s way too daunting to try and fix.

But don’t fret (HAH, see what I did there), there are actually a handful of really easy ways to fix things up. Here are a few, simple ways to clean up your Spotify account to make it a more wholesome, seamless listening experience.

Have a “pocket” playlist

Make sure to always have a playlist in which you can save songs you think you’ll want to listen to later, but aren’t entirely familiar with — in other words, a “pocket” playlist. A playlist like this is perfect for all of you out there who love to listen to radio mixes or Spotify’s curated playlists. It’ll give you a space to test and listen to new music, which you can then move to your more established playlists once you realize that that one song you heard while walking through Starbucks is indeed a banger.

Get collaborative

This is a real playlist. The description is 100% real too.

Open playlists can actually work really well in a similar way if you have a friend who has a similar taste in music. Click on the playlist you’d like to make collaborative, hit the three dot icon and click “Collaborative Playlist.” Then, share it with a friend and encourage them to find and share good music on it. If you like it, take it and move it onto one of your personal playlists. If not, delete it. Encourage your friend to do the same.

Playlist groups

How to organize your spotify library

Dire circumstances call for good music.

Have a ton of playlists? Tired of scrolling through them all? Cut that number down by creating Playlist Folders. Go to File then hit New Playlist Folder. That way you can throw similar types of playlists together, whether it be a group of gym playlists or party playlists. You can even nest folders by creating a folder within another folder.

Sort and filter

How to organize your spotify library

All searches should always contain the word “Cardi.”

Image: brian de los santos/mashable

If you’ve got a very large playlist, or if you’re sifting through your own library, make sure that you’re making use of Spotify’s sort and filter tools. To sort, hit the carrot next to the Artist or Album tabs to list each of those categories in alphabetical or reverse alphabetical order. Hit the Calendar icon at the end to sort songs by date added. If you want your songs to go back to the original order they were in just keep clicking the carrot until it goes away.

If you want a bit more control in finding songs within a playlist or your library, you can filter through all of them by using the search bar just above your playlist. Just type in what you’re looking for and it’ll turn up all things related to that term.

Use that queue

Instead of creating new playlists with just three or four songs that you’re into at that point in time, use Spotify’s Add to Queue feature. You can’t loop the tracks on there like it were a playlist, but if you’re looking to listen to a few songs in a row, as opposed to say, a whole album, add them to your queue to keep the clutter off your playlists.

Create a local files folder

How to organize your spotify library

Make sure to also title your local folder something very applicable to your own personal brand.

Image: Brian de los santos/mashable

Every so often you may notice ridiculous, random files you have saved on your computer popping up in your searches as local files. That’s because Spotify automatically uploads any .mp3 or .m4p files on your computer’s My Music, Downloads, and iTunes folders into your library. To clean it up, sift through your hard drive for all the music you want to be on Spotify and put it in one folder. Then in the Settings menu, hit the Add A Source button under the Local Files menu, and navigate to that folder. Flip off all other sources, and your library should be cleared up.

Stop the gap

Image: brian de los santos/mashable

If you want to listen to all your music *efficiently* — that is without any time inserted in between tracks — go back into your Settings tab, scroll down, and hit Show Advanced Settings. Under Playback, turn on Crossfade Songs. You can keep the mixing time at the default (5 seconds) if you want to make it feel like a party mix, but you can also set it to 0 to make it so that songs play seamlessly right after one another.

To get to the Library view, click the Library symbol (shaped like a house) in Spotify to access all tracks, including ones you’ve added to a playlist, imported from your computer, or bought from Spotify’s in-house digital music store. All your tracks are likely a mixture of both local tracks and tracks streamed from Spotify’s Library.

A permanent Filter text box appears at the top of this view, which you can use to narrow the tracks displayed by typing the name of what you want to narrow your view to.

When Spotify first debuted, it didn’t allow you to create folders for playlists, which was very annoying because all your playlists appeared in a list down the left sidebar in one long scroll. That’s all sorted out now, thank goodness.

It’s easy to create folders and subfolders into which you can place your tracks. But how can you arrange these folders and playlists in a meaningful way? Here are some suggestions about how to make the listening experience easier:

Arrange folders by composer; handy for classical music fans because many different artists may play the same song.

Create alphabetical folders (A, B, C, and so on), and then subfolders that contain artist names within these folders.

For filing albums, you can use a hierarchical arrangement similar to what iTunes uses for its Library — a main artist folder, which includes album subfolders that contain tracks filed within these subfolders.

Create folders by year (1994 and 1997 were good years for music), with album subfolders in these year folders, or playlists dedicated to the best songs from those years.

Make playlists stand out from the crowd. Use capital letters (LIKE SHOUTING), asterisks, dashes, or anything that can make your favorite folders and playlists shine from the rest.

With over 40 millions of mainstream songs and 1500 genres, Spotify is undoubtedly the go-to platform for most music aficionados. However, you can’t listen to every song yourself to pick up the best playlists meet your taste to play whenever you want. Life is just too short for everyone.

That is why Spotify has spent much effort to acquire the AI technology to help users discover new music and curate/mange the playlist. Now let me show you how you can tidy up Spotify playlist with the Spotify desktop app and third party smart Spotify Playlist Managers.

How to organize your spotify library

Part 1. Spotify Playlist Managing Features

Playlists are the core component of Spotify. And the desktop app itself is a great playlist organizer. You can not only find different types of curated playlists like Pop, Hip-Hop, Summer, Workout, Running, EDM, R&B, Rock based on your moods and taste but also get access to helpful playlist organizing features.

New Playlist Generation

Spotify offers two new music features “Discover Weekly” and “Release Radar”. You can click “Browse” > “DISCOVER” to find the features.

Discover Weekly will recommend you the similar songs that you already more. The more songs you listen to, the more accurate it will be. “Release Radar” will will you all the all the music from the artists you followed. Both update every Friday.

You can add such playlists to your own library by right-click on the left-side bar and choose “Create Playlist” and “Create Folder”.

Sort Spotify Songs

Spotify have already sorted your songs based on different genres and moods. You can find the right category of songs by a few clicks. But for the songs in your own Spotify library, you have to sort them manually.

Spotify Duplicate Song Notification

Duplicate songs will occupy much space on your device. Fortunately, Spotify has the useful warming feature. Whenever you try to add a new will, it will check if it is already in your local playlist and warn you by offering the options “ADD ANYWAY” and “SKIP DUPLICATE”.

However, if you have already got repeat songs on your library, this feature won’t help you get rid of them.

Import iTunes Playlists Into Spotify

If you an a music lover switched from other platform, let’s say iTunes, then you may have already got tons of iTunes playlists. You just need to go to the Settings windows > “Local Files” and then click “Add A Source” to add the folder of your iTunes Music Library.

The shortcoming is that you can transfer Spotify to iTunes Music Library directly without converting them to MP3.
