It doesn't seem there is any way to search for Facebook friends on Spotify, and then follow them. The Spotify client allows you only to refresh a random list of six friends, and hope to get lucky that the friend you want to follow appears.

Am I missing something here? Is there a way to follow Facebook friends on Spotify through the web player? Through Facebook?


Seems like you can do this through the web interface by hitting Find Friends, it then loads all your Facebook friends and allows you to search through them.

  • I don't see "Find Friends." Just six random Facebook friends, and a refresh button -- no way to search or browse. – samthebrand Sep 19 '13 at 17:57
  • Hmm, this is what I see - i.imgur.com/2BFefLE.png Maybe it's a A/B split update for the web interface. – Kasra Rahjerdi Sep 19 '13 at 18:01
  • Oh yeah, I'm not seeing that. You get an upvote. – samthebrand Sep 19 '13 at 18:02

The latest Spotify update makes this possible and fairly simple.

Follow > Find Friends > Filter by Name

This process works for the client as well as Spotify for web.

  • No, it doesn't work. One of my friends doesn't appear here. Need to search with spotify:serach:numeric_id – rofrol Apr 16 '15 at 7:43
