Spotify has become a household name with the dawn of digital streaming services and is now one of the most popular platforms for online music streaming. With its vast database of songs, playlists, podcasts, and other audio content, Spotify offers an incredible listening experience that caters to every taste in music.
That being said, Spotify isn’t just a platform for personal use. It also gives users the option to collaborate on playlists with friends and family across different locations through its collaborative playlist feature. A collaborative playlist enables two or more people to add, remove or edit tracks within the same playlist simultaneously. This makes it easier for people who share similar musical tastes but are located far apart from each other to create a joint music collection.
So if you’re keen on creating a shared soundtrack of your favourite tunes with someone special in your life and want to learn how this can be done using Spotify’s collaboration feature- keep readin!
Step 1: Invite Your Collaborator
To make any Spotify playlist collaborative with another person, you first need to have their permission as well as their invite code/username/email address associated with their account.
Open-up Spotify’s app (either mobile or desktop) where you’ll find all your created playlists listed on the homepage/catalog tab section. Search up which existing Playlist/asong Album that you wish to make collaborative by clicking right next to it (inside the 3 points), thereby opening up more options related to this recent half-tapped selection.

You will then have multiple choices laid out including “Make Collabrative”, which specifically refers to whomsoever shall see this link – will now gain access remotely & contribute directly towards re-decorating/adding new content without altering both parties original intention/songs already placed though- they simply add another verse/chapter/guitar solo alongside yours!
You can find this same “Make Collaborative” option at the top of your playlist. Now, just click on it and invite either an email-id or username which you have been given (from someone with whom to share)– in order to initiate the sharing process.
Step 2: Share The Invite Link
In case you don’t have information about a user’s email address associated with their account, Spotify will still let you create a unique link that anyone can click and join your playlist. This link acts as a unique invitation code for users who do not have Spotify accounts but would love to contribute towards its collation through some public reference point/website/social media page. To access this feature – when making any Playlist/collection customised according to your taste – hit “Share” button & select “Copy Link”. Now use/share this newly created web-link anywhere throughout the internet (on social media stating specific context if required i.e., favorite ‘Summer anthem’ selection).
This is incredibly helpful since other users don’t need to share personal email addresses or usernames when you want them as contributors on that particular music soundtrack.
