Step 2. Check and locate the playlist you want to share with others. You can pick up an album you want from the Spotify library or your own library. Also, you can simply structure a new playlist by right clicking on the sidebar under "Playlists" menu.

Step 3. You can right click on the songs or playlists and then choose "Share" menu.

Step 4. It will pop up the option to share via social media or copy playlist link, embed code, Spotify URI to send via email, share online and so on. Just pick up the option you want and then follow the screen instruction to send it.

All the playlists created by yourself will be marked as private by default.

In addition, if you want others to add news songs to it, you can also click "Collaborative Playlist" to authorize others to edit it.

Part 2. Share Playlist with Someone Not on Spotify

With the methods above, users who received the shared playlists will have to have Spotify accounts to enjoy the songs online. This is not so convenient sometimes considering that not everyone is a subscription member of Spotify. Is there another way to download the Spotify tracks so that we can access and share them without any limitations?

Sure. You can use free streaming recorders online or professional Spotify recorders to record the music offline. But if you cares about the output quality and converting very much, I will highly recommend. DRmare Spotify Playlist Recorder for Mac/Windows. Unlike the free tools which takes real time and the output quality will be reduced, it can automatically import hundreds of songs and remove DRM protection from the Spotify tracks with 100% original quality, meta data such as album cover, title, artist and so on. The single license costs $19.95 while the family license costs $39.95. But it has lifetime free update, technical support. That is not bad if you are a longtime listener of Spotify music.

Else if you have plenty of friends who haven't subscribed to Spotify, you'd better use a special Spotify converter to download the songs offline so that any of your friends or family people can play the music freely.
