Like fighting over a road trip mix CD, but better! Invite your buddies to a collaborative playlist with you online. Because Spotify has music from every genre and era imaginable, you can build an endless playlist with your friends and take it anywhere.

2. Modify Searches

It’s easy to go into Spotify and search for your go-to band or current obsession, but listeners who really want to open up their options can get into the nitty-gritty with special searches. You can add cool modifiers like: “artist: [artist name]” and “year: [year].” You can also exclude specific albums, years and more.
3. Go Private

We all have guilty pleasure songs or embarrassing audio habits. While Spotify shares listening activity with connected friends by default, you can easily go into a Private Session to block what you’re listening to from reaching your network. To turn this on, just log in to Spotify and go to your Settings!
4. Enhance with Add-Ons

In-browser music controls for Chrome and Firefox users lets you control from your keyboard. Shazam integration lets you track songs and immediately locate them in Spotify. “Where is the Drama” plugin automatically plays the most dramatic part of every song on your playlist.

6. Download & Listen Offline
