Playlists are available for users on Spotify. The playlists contain lists of audio files that can be played back on Spotify either sequentially or in a shuffled order. People can create new playlists of their favorite songs, share their playlists with friends, and visit others’ playlists to experience new songs, just as many other music programs.
