By Claire Wilson

March 11, 2019

I am a crazy music lover who spend hours a day exploring music tracks I've never heard before. As a result, I have thousands of songs and dozens of playlists in my Spotify account. However, some of them are saved repeatedly without being noticed. It's time consuming to check and delete Spotify duplicates one by one and will takes up extra spaces when downloading all the songs offline without de-duplicate. But is there any efficient way we can use to organize Spotify playlist? Let's check together:


Preface: Spotify Duplicate Songs Notifications

The good news for Spotify users is that Spotify provides a duplicate songs notifications for their users now. Every time you are trying to add a new song that is already in your Spotify library, you will get the following pop up offering two options: "ADD ALL" or "SKIP DUPLICATES". You can choose the green "SKIP DUPLICATES" to easily skip existing songs and only add new ones.

However, what if we already have some duplicated songs added to our Spotify library before Spotify providing this "Duplicate song" notification feature? Just read on to see how we can delete duplicate Spotify songs with ease:

However, there are still some certain ways that we can achieve this. Let's see how:
