Spotify is a music, video, and podcast streaming and media service that allows you access to a wide database of songs, videos, and podcasts. You can make a playlist if you prefer to listen to a specific selection of your favorite songs.

There’s no limit to how many tracks you may add to a Spotify playlist. The good news is that you can easily add songs to a playlist both on desktop and on mobile.

Here’s how to do it.

How to add songs to a Spotify playlist on desktop

1. Open Spotify on your PC or Mac.

2. Use the search function to find an artist, album, song, or podcast that you’d like to include in your playlist.

3. Move your mouse over the song or podcast episode you wish to add to your playlist and right-click it or click the “…” icon to the right of the track’s title.
