If you find a playlist you love on Spotify, you can follow it so you can listen to it as many times as you want. When you follow a Spotify playlist, you’ll be notified anytime a new song is uploaded to the playlist.

Simply press “Follow” at the top of the playlist if you’re using the mobile app. You’ll click a heart icon in the desktop app. The playlist will then show with the rest of your playlists, ready to be listened to at any time.

Using either the desktop or mobile app, here’s how to follow a playlist on Spotify.

How to use the desktop app to follow a Spotify playlist
