Hi,
I would like to know if there is a total limit for songs in playlists?
I know there is a limit of 1k songs per playlist; however I don't know if there is a limit in playlists or totals songs.
Thank
Kai

Hi @Kai

There is a limit of 1000 / 2000 (mobile/browser) songs that can be added to your favourites, and I believe there's a limit on how many albums you can add (off the top of my head it's either 2000 or 1000).

I think this limit is low - please vote for my idea to increase it here:-

As a workaround you will have to create a ne playlist, call it for example "Favourites 1"! in order to have the standard one empty again.

Hi @Kai, there is a limit of 1000 tracks per playlist on the app (2000 on browser). You can have max 1000 playlists with 1000 tracks/list ☺ Additionally you can add up to 1000 albums.

How many songs does your favorites playlist currently have ?
Every playlist has limit of 2000 songs (1000 on mobile) , so if you reached this limit that's the reason .
Hi everyone.
I'm facing a strange problem using deezer on my iPhone X. When I try to add songs to "Favourite tracks" the "done message" is displayed properly but the track is not realy added to my playlist.

On Android there isn't a problem like this and I don't know what to do to solve it. With the same account on Android I have 1545 tracks added to my favourite tracks, on iPhone only 997.

Any suggestion?

Hi @megamarini the problem is that you have reached the limit. You should create a new playlist, call it Favourites 2 for example and move the songs in there so you have the standard one empty again.

We are working to increase this limit, but at the moment this is the only solution I am afraid.

Hi @megamarini

please vote for the idea to have this increased (Deezer have acknowledged it already but no harm in keeping the votes going up!)

thanks!
Everytime i try to access a certain playlist the app crashes - may be because the playlist has around 1400 songs in it but was wondering if there was anything it could be? Have built the playlist up over 2 years or so and 8 think it is just too big for the app to handle now. Any suggestions?

Heyyyy @Ollie.H please read the thread above. There is a track limit of 1000 tracks per playlist on our mobile app. You're right, your playlist is too long for the app haha! 🎶
I suggest either opening the playlist on your computer or maybe divide it on to 2 playlists? 😏

I’m trying to saving more songs in my favorites tracks playlist but I didn’t find last songs saved. How many songs can I save in this playlist? Number is different on different devices?

Cannot add more favorites the developer console shows "Uncaught (in promise) Error: Playlist 1673554101 is full, create another playlist"

What is the solution

HI @shalitha.vikum this could be because you have reached the limit, please see above. If this is not the case et us know 😉
I have 1248 favorite songs on my cellphone and they appear on the website and everything but on my iPad only 988 are there....what's wrong? I can't see my full music and therefore I can't download the songs and I'm premium.

Hi @diana.1027 please see info about this above. The iPad will show you slightly less than 1000 tracks max. We are working on getting this fixed hopefully very soon.

The only work around at the moment is to create a playlist, move all the songs into the new playlist to have the default one free again.

It could be that you have reached the limit. How many have you had before adding those of your friend? It might be a good idea to put those of your friend into a separate playlist 😉
Is the 1000/2000 limit per playlist? Or total number of songs on all your playlists? I was told in 2017 that it was the total number across all playlists so i have transferred a lot to a free spotify account as "backup" but it seems reading this thread, that the limit is per playlist. Just wanting some definitive confirmation
Thanks

Hi @razorack the limit is per playlist, not the total amount of songs in all playlists. You can have 1000/2000 playlists with 1000/2000 songs in each of them ;)

I hope this helps 😉
many thanks for the clarification
Hoi!
Als ik mijn favoriete nummers op mijn telefoon, komen niet alle recente nummers daarbij te staan.
Op de computer wel, maar het lijkt alsof ik dan een maximaal nummers heb bereikt?
Zodra ik dan 1 nummer verwijder, komt er weer 1 recente voor terug...
Mijn vraag is waarom dit gebeurd en of er een oplossing voor is????

Groetjes!

HI @Melissa.cj sorry for my reply in English. It looks like you have reached the limit. There is nothing you can do I am afraid. You will have to create a new playlist and then move all songs into the new playlist to have the default one free again. Sorry about that, we are working on increasing this in the near future.
Whenever I add a new song to my favourite songs I go back and others have disappeared and I have to add them again and then the cycle repeats
I’ve had premium for over a year now, I’ve saved over 1,400 songs to favorite tracks. But recently I’ve switched from android to iPhone. My iPhone only has 900 of the songs saved, while every other android I log into Deezer with has all my songs saved. Any idea on how to fix???
