How to Submit a Spotify Playlist to

By Kim Gilmour

In order to submit a Spotify playlist to ShareMyPlaylists (SMP) for others to enjoy, you first need to log into SMP. Then follow these steps:

  1. Copy your playlist link by right-clicking the playlist name you want to submit in the left sidebar of your Spotify window, and then selecting Copy Spotify URI from the pop-up menu that appears.

  2. On, click Submit Your Playlist.

    You get directed to the SMP Playlist Submission page.

  3. In the Playlist Image section, either choose Upload to submit your own artwork or click Generate Artwork to let SMP create artwork based on the tracks in your playlist.

    The Generate Artwork option is faster and easier — it uses album covers to create the artwork — but creating your own logo or photo can make it stand out. If you want to do it yourself, click Upload and, in the Browse File dialog box that appears, browse to the file’s location and click OK. Images should be 150 pixels by 150 pixels in size.

  4. Paste the link you copied in Step 1 into the Enter Spotify URL text box (Ctrl+V on a PC or Command+V on a Mac).

  5. Give your playlist a title in the Enter Your Playlist Title text box.

  6. In the Enter Playlist Description text box, add the playlist’s description (such as what the playlist means to you).

    SMP generates the artist names automatically for you, so you don’t need to mention them in the description.

  7. Select a genre from the list provided in the third column.

    You can choose only one genre.

  8. Click the Submit Playlist button.

You’re logged into SMP and have an account with the site, so your job’s done; other people can view your public playlist.
