August 25, 2022

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?

Let’s find out…

How Many Artists Are On Spotify?

There are at least 3 million creators and artists on Spotify. However, the last time the official stat was provided by Spotify was in March 2018, so this number is likely to be significantly higher today.

Fast forward to 2022, how many artists are likely to be on Spotify and how can you easily become a Spotify artist yourself?

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:

  1. Music Genre Classification
  2. Music Genre Explorer
  3. 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 See Who Liked Your Playlist On Spotify

You can find out how many people follow any Spotify playlist by opening the playlist in Spotify and looking for follower / like count near the playlist’s title and information. Although you can see how many followers you have, you can’t see the individual profiles.

The follower / like count will show up in different areas depending on if you view the playlist in the desktop app, smartphone app, and web browser

To learn more about if this feature will ever come to Spotify, if there are any workarounds, or how you can see the number of Spotify playlist followers in detail, check out my article called How To See Who Liked Your Playlist On Spotify. 🙂

How To Make Money From Spotify Playlists

How To Become A Spotify Artist

To get access to the Spotify For Artists dashboard and become a Spotify artist, you must first actually have music released on Spotify.

So… how do you get your music on Spotify?

To get your music on Spotify, you need to work with a distributor, or with a record label who already has a distributor. They handle all the licensing and distribution, and pay your streaming royalties.


To get your music on Spotify, I would recommend using DistroKid as your music distributor because they are actually very easy and surprisingly cheap to use (it’s what I use to get my music up on Spotify).

For a detailed look into this, check out my article on how to create a Spotify artist account (you’ll even learn how to get that beautiful blue verified checkmark).

However, for the best and easiest way to get your music on Spotify properly, take a closer look at DistroKid and my big fat DistroKid review to learn everything about them.

P.S. There is even a handy How To Choose A Distributor Guide and some info on the nice DistroKid discount.

With that said, it is always a good idea to do some of your own research and see what other distributors are out there on the market.

Some other options to check out

Although I personally use, love, and recommend DistroKid, it is always a good idea to see how they compare to the other guys.

Luckily for you, I’ve done just that. 🙂

Check out the comparisons of DK to some other popular music distributors:

P.S. If you also want to learn about music publishing and make sure that you are not leaving any money on the table with your music distribution setup, I’d recommend checking out these 2 articles:

Some of my favorite music marketing tools

Thank you for reading this article, my friend, and I hope you found it helpful as you build your own successful career in music. 🙂

Here is a list of my favorite and most recommended tools and resources that I’ve personally used to get my music streamed over 4,000,000 times on Spotify as an artist.

Any of the paid services or tools listed here are most likely affiliate links, so if you do decide to use any of them, I’ll earn a small commission.

But in all honesty, these are the exact tools that I personally use, love, and recommend to anyone – including my own friends and family.

Music Distribution

To get your music on Spotify on all the other streaming services, I use DistroKid because you get unlimited song uploads for a low annual price.

If you want to learn more about DistroKid and music distribution, check out the in-depth DistroKid review that I’ve put together.

Or, if you want to get started with DistroKid right now, you can save on your first year with the DistroKid discount.

Facebook Ads For Spotify Success

Although Facebook Ads can be a real pain to get working properly, there is no denying that they are incredible for growing Spotify streams and getting your music in front of real fans.

This is why I’ve put together a completely free course that you can check out called Facebook Ads For Musicians’ Spotify Streams. 🙂

Music Publishing Royalties Collection

For collecting all of the publishing, mechanical, and live performance royalties owed to me whenever my music gets streamed or played, my go-to is Songtrust.

Songtrust is a publishing administration company which means that in addition to collecting all of those royalties for me, they do it on a global level.

To learn if Songtrust is right for you, I’d recommend checking out this article on Songtrust vs BMI.

And if you want to get started with Songtrust right now, I’d recommend learning about the Songtrust discount code so that you can get the best price. 🙂

Website & Smart Links

I’m personally not a big fan of the link-in-bio and smart links for music pages like ToneDen and Hyppeddit.

Instead, I prefer having a full-blown WordPress website that allows me to have a full website in addition to unlimited music links.

For getting started with this, I really like Bluehost because it is the cheapest and a theme called Thrive Themes because it is the most flexible and easiest to use.

I’ve actually created a free Smart Links Course that you can take to learn how to get set up and start getting more streams with custom smart links (I’ve even included the templates I am using!).
