5 Secret Spotify Tricks

Spotify has become the most preferred music streaming platform worldwide. Its extensive music content and its adaptation to the taste of each user make it one of the best to date. Whether you’ve been using it for years or just started out as a Spotify user, here are 5 tricks that aren’t very noticeable at first glance, but are very interesting.

How to view song history

Sometimes it happens that you listen to a cool song from the general list or from the radio, but you get lost and in the end you don’t pay attention to either the name or the artist. Is there a way to find out what song it was? Spotify history will help you. Just go to the desktop client, click on the three lines icon in the bottom right corner, and you will see two lists: the play queue and the history list. In the latter, you can see all the songs you listened to, and there you can find the one you like and the name of which you do not remember.

How to organize your playlists

If there are too many playlists, then the sidebar of the Spotify client becomes a little unwieldy. At this point, it’s best to clean up the mess by creating folders to organize your lists. To do this, right-click on any list name and select the “Create Folder” option.

Share the exact minute of a song

With Spotify, you can also share links to songs, but it can also be done at a specific minute in a song. To do this, you must click three dots and click “Share”. From all the options, choose “Share URI”. To this link, you’ll add #time at the end, followed by the minute you want to share.

Disable Notifications

Sometimes notifications coming to the platform can be annoying, but there is a way to turn them off. Go to Settings and then go to Notifications or Your Music. Here you have to deactivate the items and that’s it.

How to make sure that your activity is not public

Spotify has a lot of social features that let you post your activities (like the songs you’re listening to), share playlists, and more. You can even link it to your Facebook account so all your friends can be there. But if one day you feel like listening to something that no one else knows, you can temporarily turn on private mode so you don’t share any of your activity data on Spotify. To do this, go to the desktop client and click the arrow icon in the upper right corner, next to your name. From the drop-down menu, select the “Private session” option.
