How To Follow Someone On Spotify (2024)

Similar to social media platforms, Spotify allows users to add, follow, and like certain accounts, friends, artists, and playlists. The process to do so is very easy and anyone who has little-to-no knowledge of social media platforms will find it incredibly simple.

Spotify has gotten more interactive in recent years, that being said, anyone can follow anyone and check their content, music taste, and activity. Here is how to follow someone on Spotify, depending on your device, be it the desktop app, web player, mobile device, and so on.

Desktop App or Web Player

The option with the best overview is through the desktop app or web player. Here are the necessary steps.

Step 1: Open the app

Open your Spotify app on your desktop or web player and log into your account.

On the top, you will see the dedicated ‘Search Bar’. You can then enter a specific username or artist you want to follow.

Step 3: Find and follow

After finding who you want to follow, simply click on the ‘Follow’ button located below the user’s name and their activity will now be shown in your ‘Activity Tab’.

Mobile, iPad, or Tablet Device

Whether you’re using an Android or iOS device, the instructions are the same for both.

Step 1: Open the app

Open Spotify on your mobile, iPad, or tablet device. Then, log into your account if you haven’t already.

The ‘Search Bar’ is located on the bottom panel of your device. You can use it to enter the username or artist you wish to follow.

Step 3: Find and follow

After searching and finding who you want to follow, click on their profile and proceed with the ‘Follow’ option. This is very similar to how it’s done on the desktop app.

Find Friends

There is also the option to ‘Find Friends’. If you’re connected on Spotify through your Facebook profile, the ‘Find Friends’ option will recommend to you a list of friends that you can add and follow on your account. With this, you also have the option to ‘Follow All’ of the recommended ones.


Much like social media platforms, Spotify has the option to add and follow friends. With this, you can see your friends’ activity log and get a whiff of their music tastes. If you follow the necessary steps listed above, you can easily follow anyone in a manner of minutes.
