If you are looking to find out how many songs there are on Spotify in total or what the limits are for how man you can save on your Spotify library, I’ve researched this topic and wrote about it for you here.
There is no limit to the number of songs you can like and save on Spotify because Spotify removed the 10,000-song limit in 2020. However, you can only have up to 10,000 songs on any individual Spotify playlist at one time.
When it comes to managing your Spotify library, the only restrictions are in how many songs you can have saved to an individual Spotify playlist and how many songs you can download for offline listening.
To learn more about Spotify’s song and library limits, how you can organize your music better, and more, simply keep on reading, my friend. 🙂
How Many Songs Can You Have Saved on Spotify?
There is no limit to the number of songs you can have saved on Spotify. However, you can only have up to 10,000 songs on any individual Spotify playlist.
In the past, there was a 10,000 limit playlist on your entire Spotify library but, Spotify removed this limit due to a large number of requests from its users.
How many songs can you have on Spotify playlist?
You can have up to 10,000 songs on any individual Spotify playlist.
How many songs can you download on Spotify?
Premium Spotify users can download up to 10,000 songs on each of the 5 different devices available to them for offline listening.
In total, this means premium users can download 50,000 songs although this is spread across 5 different devices with 10,000 per device.

How To Find How Many Songs You’ve Saved To Your Spotify Library
To find out all of your Spotify stats, including how many songs you have saved and how many times you’ve streamed a song, you can use a 3rd-party Spotify stats and streams tracker to get all of this info and more.
Spotify Stats & Streams Trackers are 3rd party tools that connect to your Spotify profile to give you a clear way to view your top artists and songs, stream counts, and other useful Spotify stats.
The top 2 3rd party stats and streams trackers for Spotify are ‘LastFM’ and ‘Stats For Spotify’.
LastFM is good because it is a trusted source and doesn’t ask for any suspicious control of your Spotify profile when integrating it. However, LastFM does not look at your past listening history and instead can only track your listening activity while the LastFM is connected.
Stats For Spotify is good because it gives you stats based on your past listening history but the app does ask for some suspicious control of your Spotify profile when you are integrating it.
To learn more about these 2 tools and how you can use them to find your Spotify stats, check out my full article called How To Find Your Top Artists On Spotify. 🙂
How Many Songs Are There On Spotify In Total?
There are over 80 million songs on Spotify in total. However, because at least 60,000 songs are uploaded to Spotify every day, this number is constantly increasing by about 1 million songs every 17 days.
This total Spotify song count comes directly from Spotify as they clearly state that they have over 80 million tracks on their company info page.
In addition to the number of songs on Spotify, there are more than 4 million podcasts available on Spotify in total, as stated by Spotify on their company info page.
With that many tracks and podcasts on Spotify, how many artists and creators are there then?

How To Organize Your Spotify Music
The best 2 ways to organize your Spotify music are to do it yourself by creating and managing playlists or by using a third-party tool like ‘Organize Your Music’ by Playlist Machinery.
In both cases, you will first want to have an idea of how you want your music organized, whether it be by genre, release year of the recording, or specific moods or situations like studying or an upcoming party.
To learn more about how you can organize your music on Spotify, with a breakdown on both techniques, and examples of how others organize their music, check out my article on How To Organize Your Spotify Music. 🙂
How To Know Any Song’s Genre
To identify and learn a music genre, you need to know the main genre name, immerse yourself in all of the different sub-genres and different flavors, and finally understand the typical arrangement, structure, and instrumentation in that genre.
When starting out, the best way to learn the genre of a song is to use a genre analyzer tool, a music chart or classification website, or to use artificial intelligence to create playlists filled with similar songs in Spotify.
From there, there are 3 levels to truly understanding music genres:
- Music Genre Classification
- Music Genre Explorer
- Detailed Song Arrangement & Structure
To learn more about how you can learn the genre of any song (from beginner to advanced techniques), check out this article that will teach you how to Identify & Learn Music Genres. 🙂
How To Become A Spotify Artist
