How to See Who Liked Your Playlist on Spotify

If you’re an artist or curator on spotify, having a popular playlist can help your music reach a wider audience. It can also be a great way to boost engagement and monetization, such as when someone pays you to review or promote songs on your playlist.

However, it’s not always easy to know who has been liking your playlists. Many tips online suggest comparing follower counts to playlist-like numbers, but this method is largely unreliable and unrealistic, especially for smaller channels where it’s not possible to spend all day monitoring follower activity and playlist-likes.

You can use some deductive reasoning to figure out who has been liking your playlists on spotify, but you’ll need to do some detective work. To start, open the Spotify app on your mobile device and select “your library” from the bottom menu. Then, navigate to the playlist you want to check likes for. You’ll find the total number of followers (or “likes”) located directly underneath the playlist name.

Spotify removed the ability to see who liked your playlist back in 2013, and they’re unlikely to bring it back anytime soon, based on their responses to threads about adding this feature on their Ideas board. If you’d like to see this feature added back, make sure to create a new thread on this board. In the meantime, you can still see how many people have “followed” a playlist by viewing its follower count on their profile.
