Before delving into the steps, it is essential to note that the repeat feature is available for both Spotify Premium and free subscribers. However, the users with the free account will continue to see ads between the playbacks, especially if you’re looping an entire playlist instead of the song. Let’s begin.

What Does the Repeat Button Do on Spotify

The Repeat button on Spotify allows you to control music playback. When you tap the Repeat button once, the entire playlist or album repeats. This means that once the last song in the playlist or album finishes playing, Spotify will automatically return to the first song and start playing it again. This will create a continuous loop of the entire playlist or album.

In a nutshell, repeat mode repeats the entire playlist or album. While Repeat 1 specifically replays the current song over and again. With this understanding, let’s begin with the steps.
