  • You can recover a deleted playlist on Spotify if you've accidentally deleted one, or simply changed your mind.

If you delete a Spotify playlist and later regret that decision, don't worry – Spotify has a sort of "undo" button that lets you recover a playlist you've deleted. 

Of course, you should always think carefully before deleting something, and Spotify makes you confirm your deletion command before it sends your playlist to the trash. 

Here's how to recover a deleted playlist in a desktop browser. 

How to recover deleted playlists on Spotify

1. Open your Spotify account page in a web browser and log in, if you aren't already.

The playlist should show up in your Spotify account within a few minutes. If it doesn't, try closing and restarting the Spotify app. Or, if the playlists hasn't reappeared after a few minutes, create a new playlist, and you should then see the restored playlist reappear in your library.
