How do I organize albums on my Spotify? Are you wondering the same thing? For all the super-organized folks, Spotify allows you to make playlist folders. They neatly organize your playlist and ensure you quickly find what you’re looking for. Thus, enabling you to manage your Spotify library effectively. Here’s how to make playlist folders on Spotify and add playlists to them.

Note: You can only create folders in Spotify on the desktop app or the web. It is not currently possible in the mobile app, but the folders will be visible once you create them.

Whether it’s discovering new artists or sharing songs to Instagram Stories, Spotify is my go-to music streaming app. To further enhance your Spotify experience, here’s how you can create a playlist folder;

Changed your mind or created a playlist folder by mistake? You can easily delete it. Simply drag and drop playlists outside the folder and delete the folder.

Note: Ensure you move all your essential playlists outside the folder. Because once you delete the folder, the playlists inside that particular folder will be permanently deleted.

Unfortunately, NO! Currently, Spotify only allows you to create and delete the playlist folder. It doesn’t support folder sharing.

Organize your music with playlist folders on Spotify

For even more organization, you can even create sub and sub subfolders on Spotify. For this, right-click a playlist folder and select Create Folder. However, I think this can get quite confusing and cumbersome, so I like to stick with just one level of folders.
