Get Featured Playlists

Get a list of Spotify featured playlists (shown, for example, on a Spotify player's 'Browse' tab).

Important policy note

Request

  • country
    string

    A country: an ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country code. Provide this parameter if you want the list of returned items to be relevant to a particular country. If omitted, the returned items will be relevant to all countries.

    Example value: "SE"
  • locale
    string

    The desired language, consisting of a lowercase ISO 639-1 language code and an uppercase ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country code, joined by an underscore. For example: es_MX, meaning "Spanish (Mexico)". Provide this parameter if you want the results returned in a particular language (where available).
    Note: if locale is not supplied, or if the specified language is not available, all strings will be returned in the Spotify default language (American English). The locale parameter, combined with the country parameter, may give odd results if not carefully matched. For example country=SE&locale=de_DE will return a list of categories relevant to Sweden but as German language strings.

    Example value: "sv_SE"
  • timestamp
    string

    A timestamp in ISO 8601 format: yyyy-MM-ddTHH:mm:ss. Use this parameter to specify the user's local time to get results tailored for that specific date and time in the day. If not provided, the response defaults to the current UTC time. Example: "2014-10-23T09:00:00" for a user whose local time is 9AM. If there were no featured playlists (or there is no data) at the specified time, the response will revert to the current UTC time.

    Example value: "2014-10-23T09:00:00"
  • limit
    integer

    The maximum number of items to return. Default: 20. Minimum: 1. Maximum: 50.

    Example value: 10Default value: 20Range: 0 - 50
  • offset
    integer

    The index of the first item to return. Default: 0 (the first item). Use with limit to get the next set of items.

    Example value: 5Default value: 0
