There are literally thousands of pre-made music and podcast playlists from Spotify and community users. If you like to make your own playlists, you can further personalize them with custom cover art. We’ll show you how.

Changing playlist covers can be done using the desktop and mobile Spotify apps. That includes Windows 10, Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android, and the web player. Spotify Premium is not required for this feature.

Add Custom Covers to Spotify Playlists on Desktop

First, open the Spotify app on your Windows PC, Mac, or on the web. Select one of your personal playlists from the sidebar.
