how to change spotify playlist

Spotify provides you a personalized way to manage your own playlist. This gives you the freedom not just for naming the playlist but also to add your own image for the cover. Here’s how to change Spotify playlist picture.

By default, Spotify uses the combination of all the songs’ album covers as the playlist’s cover. It has no custom picture and changes automatically every time you add or remove songs from that playlist.

But for some specific playlists, the default cover isn’t enough. You can add your own picture as the cover of your playlist to personalize it the way you want.

You can do this on Spotify apps (Android, iPhone, Windows 10 desktop, Mac) and the web. The change you make is applied to all devices you use Spotify on immediately.
