How To See Who Follows & Likes Your Spotify Playlist (Explained)

by ghiselle rousso

If you have a Spotify playlist you may be wondering who spotify follows or who has liked your playlist on Spotify. I’ve researched this topic and wrote about it for you right here. 🙂

You can find out how many people follow any Spotify playlist by opening the playlist in Spotify and looking for follower / like count near the playlist’s title and information. Although you can see how many followers you have, you can’t see the individual profiles.

It is also important to note that:

If the playlist has 0 followers, it will only show the playlist creator’s name
The follower / like count will show up in different areas depending on if you view the playlist in the desktop app, smartphone app, and web browser
It is called “Likes” on the smartphone app and web browser, but it is called “Followers” on the desktop app

To learn more about if this feature will ever come to Spotify, if there are any workarounds, or how you can see the number of Spotify playlist followers in detail, simply keep on reading, my friend. 🙂

How To See Who Liked Your Playlist On Spotify


Spotify does not allow playlist creators the ability to see who has like their playlist on Spotify. Instead, the follower / like count of any playlist on Spotify is made available near the playlist’s title and information.

To see how many people have liked a playlist on Spotify, simply follow these steps:

  • Open the Spotify app on your phone, computer or web browser
  • Search for a playlist or open a playlist from your Library
  • Look for the follower / like count near the playlist’s name and information
  • Depending on what Spotify app type you are using, the count will show up in different areas and will be called different things. View the examples below so you know what to look for and where.

This is where the follower count shows in the Spotify desktop app:

Will Spotify add the ability to see who follows my playlist?

Spotify used to have the ability to for playlist creators to be able to see who liked or followed their playlist on Spotify. However, an update in March 2013 removed this feature and it has not come back since.

Although this feature is actually the top most requested feature in the Spotify forums, Spotify officially replied staying that they are keeping the ideas in the “Not Right Now” bin and have no immediate plans to implement this feature.

Right now, it does not seem likely that they are to add it back in and they most likely removed the feature to ensure the privacy of Spotify listeners.

Are there are any hacks to see who follows my playlist on Spotify?

An alternate to seeing who follows your playlist on Spotify is to see who follows your personal Spotify account.

Most Spotify playlists are created by Spotify users and the creator of the playlist shows near the playlist’s title and information. You can use this to get an idea of who follows your playlist but not the exact amount.

Some listeners may also follow the playlist creator to stay up to date with any new playlists that they may add and Spotify does allow users to be able to view who follows their Spotify user accounts.

To view who follows your Spotify user account, follow these simple steps:

Open the Spotify app on your phone, computer or web browser
Make sure you are logged in and click on your Profile Name
Click on the “Followers” tab

It’s worth noting that this workaround or hack is pretty lame and really only gets you in the ballpark of who is following your particular playlist.
