What if I want to duplicate specific songs in a playlist?

If you don’t want to duplicate the entire playlist, you’ll need to select specific songs to copy-paste to another playlist.

On a computer, do this:

– Open your playlist
– Hold down CTRL on your keyboard
– Select all of the songs you want to duplicate
– Right-click on one of the songs you want to duplicate
– Select “Add to playlist”
– Select a new playlist to send them to

On a mobile device, do this:

– Open your playlist
– Tap on “Edit playlist’
– Tap on the three-dot icon next to every song you want to duplicate
– Select “Add to playlist”
– Select a new playlist to send each song to

Unfortunately, duplicating is slower and less comfortable on a mobile device because you need to duplicate each song individually.

On a computer, you can select all songs and duplicate them at once.

Does duplicating playlists on Spotify delete the songs in the first playlist?

No, it doesn’t. Duplicating a playlist means “copying” the songs from the first playlist and pasting them into a second one.

You’re not transferring but copying the songs. This means that the songs will be in both playlists at the same time.

They don’t disappear from the first one to the second one. There’s no way you can do this automatically on Spotify.

If you want to, you can merge two playlists and then delete the first playlist, leaving only the merged one.

But you’ll need to do that manually. First, copy the songs from the first playlist to the second, and then delete the first playlist.
