Use IFTTT to archive your Spotify Discover Weekly playlist

Spotify generates a Discover Weekly playlist, which it updates every Monday. Usually I get around to listening to it, but sometimes I don’t, and when that happens, the songs it recommended for me that week are lost.

What if instead we could set up a Discover Weekly Archive playlist, which contains all the songs that have ever been in your Discover Weekly playlist? Well, that’s exactly what we’re going to do!

Obviously, you’ll first need an IFTTT account1 and a Spotify account2. Although if you’re reading this you probably already have them.

You’ll also need the Discover Weekly playlist, which starts getting generated after a few weeks of listening. If you don’t see it, search for it, or listen to more music.

The IFTTT applet

All you need to do is connect your IFTTT account to your Spotify account, then enable the Automatically create a Discover Weekly archive applet. From then on, every Monday, your Discover Weekly songs will be copied into your Discover Weekly Archive playlist.

Mine can be found here if you want to take a look. I’ve got over 4,900 songs in it!
