Where Is The Repeat Button On Spotify?

As your music listening habits grow, so does the amount of content you have! With all of these songs, albums, playlists, and artists, where do you put those duplicates?

There’s an easy solution to this. The answer is the repeat button. You see it sometimes in apps like YouTube or Netflix, but not always. It is typically located at the top right corner next to the shuffle function.

The repeat option allows you to add a song or album to your playlist every time that item has been listened to either once, many times, or even continually throughout your life. This can be helpful for two reasons.

First, if you find a new favorite artist, you can create a regular habit by adding their songs to a playlist repeatedly. Or maybe they have an epic one-song wonder about love, so you can always listen to that as well!

Second, if someone else has done something you really loved, you can now re-experience some of that feeling by creating a playlist with some of those songs. That way you can feel more connected to what others already enjoy!

This article will go into detail about how to use the repeat feature in the Spotify app.

It used to be there

As of this writing, you will have to manually add songs to your play list or playlist by adding them through the mobile app, web browser, or desktop software.

There is no easy way to create a repeat queue unless it’s already in place. You can add songs to an existing play list but that doesn’t give you the option to create a new one.

You can choose to get “Artists” as a feature which allows for creating radio stations, but nothing more than that. There are some third-party apps such as Songburst and TuneCore that offer limited song repeats, but none with the full functionality like what we have now.

Spotify has been offering music listening via iOS since 2012 and Android since late 2013. They never really gave users a reason why they should pay $10 per month when they could use their platform free of advertisements and still have most features.

They are changing the way their app works

As of late, where you would normally find your play list or music listening functions, there is no longer an ‘Add to playlist’ or ‘add to cart’ option. You will instead be greeted with what some have called the repeat button!

The new feature was announced back in May as an update that would roll out to Android users first. Since then it has made its way onto the iOS version of the app and now it’s here for everyone!

What is the repeat button?

The repeat button allows you to create a custom radio station using one of Spotify’s curated listening zones or genre lists. You can also choose how many songs you want to listen to within each zone (up to 20).

After choosing your song length, the next step is creating your station. You can add up to 5 tracks at once per zone, and you can switch between looking at all the zones at once or pick a specific zone to focus on by tapping on it.

They are changing the way their website works

Many users have noticed that there is no longer an “add to cart” or “buy” button for songs, albums, or playlists on

This changes coming in early May!

We’ve heard your feedback! And we agree-the Add To Cart buttons you’re looking for don’t exist anymore.

That’s why from April 10th through May 4th, you’ll be able to add as many of your favorite music tracks, albums, or podcasts to your cart by using the Marketplace tab.

Once you add something into your cart, you can then checkout via PayPal or Amazon so you can continue listening offline.

They are moving to a subscription model

As of this writing, there is no repeat button for users that use the free tier or limited premium accounts. This includes if you have mobile app access as well as web-based listening!

This seems very odd to us at least. There’s really no way to re-listen to your favorite songs without paying money for an account.

By removing this feature, they are effectively taking away one of the main ways people can enjoy their music service.

Why would anyone pay monthly for a music streaming service when they can easily be wasting money by accidentally clicking “repeat” too many times?

There are some rumors floating around about why this may happen, but none of them make sense to us. The reason we believe this feature should stay is because it could potentially generate revenue for the company!

If someone wanted to listen to a song again, they would need to either purchase the song or add it to their library which costs money. By offering a repeat option, they might get more people to buy additional products or services.

They are removing advertisements

Over the past few months, you may have noticed that your listening experience has changed. You no longer get bombarded with ads every time you start listening to an album or song!

What we can say for sure is that this change was not unnoticed. Many people began complaining about how much of a distraction ads were when listening to music.

Now that the repeat button is being removed, some users have begun exploring other ways to enjoy their songs more. Some have even created third-party apps and services to fill in the gap left by the repeat feature.

However, there is one major downfall to these apps; they cost money! If you are already paying for Spotify as a student, then it makes sense to invest in a good app but if you are looking to save some money, well, you have found the solution!

This article will be talking about two free alternatives to the repeat feature on Spotify and why you should try them out.

They are adding new features


There’s an app for just about everything these days, so it makes sense that music streaming services have also noticed this trend. You can now create playlists through your device or via a computer!

This is very exciting news because you now have another way to organize all of your songs. Plus, people have made incredible wealth off of creating their own playlist styles and sharing them with others.

By having the ability to make your own playlists, they will still be accessible wherever you have internet access. This includes laptops, phones, tablets, etc. – even if you don’t have a premium account yet!

There is one major downfall to making playlists outside of Spotify, though. The community feature has been disabled. That means you cannot use the tool to find out what kind of music your friends listen to and add those songs to theirs.

Overall, while not totally perfect, I think this update is worth checking out as long as you are aware of the limitations.

They are introducing a paid service


This year, music streaming services have exploded in popularity due to their ease of use and wide variety of content you can access. There are now almost as many different types of music listening apps as there are genres!

Most people know that most of these services offer users free tiers which allow for limited features. These include being able to create an account, add songs to your library, and even download the songs you like so you can listen to them offline.

However, some services go one step further and offer more advanced features such as creating playlists or sharing with friends, or they may give you enough credit to buy a larger plan. Some only limit how much money you can spend each month while others let you spend as much or little money as you want per month!

There is no clear leader when it comes to online music streaming but one company has consistently risen to the top – and it’s not Apple or Google. It’s not Amazon either, although those companies do make lots of money off of you through ads. No, the biggest winner in this game is…


I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty sure we’re all spending way too much time watching Netflix and YouTube. (Yes, I’ve already wasted half my afternoon looking at funny videos) And we’re probably wasting way too much money buying snacks, drinks, and electronics to watch said videos.

They are increasing their subscription fee

Over the past few months, more and more music streaming services have been offering paid subscriptions. Some of these include full access to all of the songs and albums in the library, while others offer limited features that can be upgraded as you progress through the app.

Some of the most well-known apps with this feature include Apple Music, Google Play Music, Pandora, Tidal, and now, Spotify!

Spotify has raised its price by $5 per month or $60 per year. This is an expensive cost if you are already paying for other services like Netflix or HBO. The average person listens to around 5 hours of music per week which means investing in the spotify premium account will still not make much of a difference.

This increase was announced back in May and it seems almost every one noticed. Many people voiced their opinions about how expensive the service had become and why they cannot afford the additional fees.
