Playlist titles can be a form of self-expression, but sometimes inspiration just doesn’t strike and you end up with something like, “Happy playlist” or even just a string of random letters.

If you use Spotify, you don’t have to keep those placeholder titles — you can easily edit the names of your playlists. However, you can only edit playlists that you own.

Here’s how to edit a Spotify playlist’s name, using either the desktop version for Mac and PC, or the mobile app for iPhone and Android devices.
