Can You Check Who Liked Your Playlist in Spotify? Nope!
If you make a public playlist on Spotify, any other Spotify user can like or follow it. They don’t even need to be following you to like your playlist. Whether your Spotify playlist has one or one thousand likes, you might be wondering exactly who liked it. While you can see who liked your content on most social media and music apps, is this possible on Spotify? Unfortunately, it is not, but you can view other statistics.
How to Check Your Playlist Stats in Spotify on an iPhone
When you make a playlist on Spotify, anyone can like it. Keep in mind that liking a Spotify playlist automatically adds it to your library. So technically, when you like a playlist on Spotify, you also follow it. In fact, the “Like” button is replaced by “Follow” on the Spotify desktop app. Additionally, you can only like public playlists, since private playlists can’t be accessed by random Spotify users.
If you’ve made some top-notch playlists, and you find you’ve gathered a large number of likes, you might be wondering who liked them. The good news is that you can see the like count of every public Spotify playlist, whether it’s yours or someone else’s.
However, you don’t have the option to see which individual profiles like a Spotify playlist, even if it’s yours. This option was available until 2013 when Spotify removed this feature. Now, you can only see how many likes your Spotify playlist has. Although many users complained about not being able to see who liked their playlists, there’s no indication Spotify will be bringing this feature back, at least not in the near future.
For the time being, you can only see how many likes your Spotify playlist has. So, in case you’re wondering how you can view your like count on Spotify on an iPhone, here’s what you need to do:
- Open Spotify on your iPhone.
- Tap on Your Library in the bottom-right corner of the menu.
- Select the Playlists tab at the top of the screen.
- Go to the playlist in question.
You’ll see the like count of the playlist under the title, which is on the left side of the screen. Unfortunately, you can’t use that count to find out individual users who liked the playlist. For instance, if you were to try and tap on the like count, nothing would happen.
While there is no workaround to see who liked your Spotify playlist, some users check their followers to see if there’s someone new in the list. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean anything. Even if you do have a new follower, your playlist could have been liked by someone who had already been following you, or someone who doesn’t follow you at all. This method can be especially unhelpful if your Spotify account has a lot of followers. There simply isn’t an accurate way of telling who liked your Spotify playlists.
But if you still want to try this method, follow the steps below:
- Open the app on your iPhone.
- Tap on the Settings icon in the upper-right corner of your screen.
- Proceed to the View Profile tab under your username.
- Tap on the Followers button under your profile picture.
Here you’ll be able to see if someone new followed you, and perhaps it was them who liked your playlist. Unfortunately, there is no way of knowing for sure.
How to Check Your Playlist Stats in Spotify on an Android
The same rules apply to the Spotify app on Android devices. You can only see how many likes your Spotify playlist has, but you can’t see who liked it. Regardless, if you want to see how many people liked your playlist on Spotify, this is how it’s done:
- Launch Spotify on your Android device.
- Select the Your Library button on the bottom menu.
- Continue to the “Playlists” tab at the top of your screen.
- Find the playlist where you want to check the like count.
- Tap on it.
The like count will be right under your profile picture and username in the middle-left part of the screen. Just as with the iPhone app, if you tapped the like count, nothing would happen. Keep in mind that if your Spotify playlist doesn’t have any likes, you’ll only see your username and profile picture under the playlist’s title.
There are a lot of third-party apps that claim that they can show you who liked your Spotify playlists. However, they’re all scams, and it’s not recommended you install them. A reliable workaround doesn’t currently exist for this issue.
How to Check Your Playlist Stats in Spotify on a Windows PC
The Spotify desktop app won’t give you what you’re looking for either. It will only show your playlist’s total number of likes. As mentioned before, on the Spotify desktop app, likes are called “Followers.”
Keep in mind that the like count of a Spotify playlist isn’t always located in the same place. It depends on whether you’re using the mobile app, the desktop app, or the web browser. If you are using Spotify on the desktop app, the like count will be located on the right side of the app.
Here’s how you can find them on the Windows app:
- Launch the Spotify desktop app on your Windows.
- Log in to your Spotify account and go to the Playlists section on the left sidebar.
- Find the playlist you want to check and click on it.
The Followers section will be on the far-right side of the app, above the Downloaded button. This is different from the mobile app, which doesn’t show your like count if you don’t have any. Meanwhile, on the desktop app, it will say “Followers: 0” if there are none.
How to Check Your Playlist Stats in Spotify on a Mac
You can access your playlist the same way on the Mac app, but you still can’t see who followed your Spotify playlist. Here’s how it’s done:
- Run the Spotify desktop app on your Mac.
- Sign in to your account if you haven’t already.
- Navigate to the Playlists section on the left sidebar.
- Click on the playlist.
The total number of followers will be on the middle-right side of the screen. If you were to click on the Followers tab, nothing would happen.
How to Check Your Playlist Stats in Spotify on the Web Player
The Spotify web app is a great solution for those who don’t want to install the desktop app, as it offers the same features. However, it doesn’t give you the option to view who followed your playlists either. You can only see how many likes it has. This is how it’s done:
- Open the Spotify web app on your browser.
- Sign in to your account.
- Click on Your Library on the left sidebar.
- Locate and click on the playlist you want to check.
Your like count will be under the playlist’s title, next to your username. For instance, on the web app, it will say “15 likes,” not “Followers: 15” as on the desktop app.
This May Be Hard to Follow
Although neither the Spotify mobile, desktop, or web app give you the option to view specifically who liked your playlists, you can still see how many likes each playlist has. Even though Spotify doesn’t let you view who follows your Playlists at the moment, there is a possibility this feature will be added in the future. For now, Spotify users will just have to be satisfied with being able to see their followers and playlist likes.
