Q. What happens when you delete a playlist on Spotify?
Whenever you delete a playlist on Spotify, it is immediately removed from your library of music playlists. Meaning, you won’t be able to access and play the tracks in the deleted playlist.
However, people who may have been following the playlist will still be able to access it even after you have deleted it from your account.
Q. Does deleting a playlist delete the songs as well?
Yes, deleting a Spotify playlist also deleted the songs from your music library. Meaning, you won’t be able to play that song if it was only available on that single playlist.
However, if it was saved on other playlists as well, you will be able to still listen to the song even though it was deleted alongside the different playlist.
Q. Why did my recovered Spotify playlists disappear?
If all your recovered Spotify playlists seem to have disappeared suddenly, you may be logged in to the wrong account.
Perhaps you have multiple accounts on Spotify and might have signed in to one of the accounts which do not have a record of recovered playlists.
