Those who pride themselves on their playlist-making abilities now have one more tool in their arsenal.

You can now accompany the hand-picked Spotify selections chosen by your masterful ear with a custom playlist cover to help tie the experience together. While this feature has been available on desktop for quite some time, it hadn't been included in the mobile version of the app, for some head-scratching reason. Luckily, the process to upload a custom playlist cover from your mobile device is incredibly simple and as easy as changing the wallpaper on your phone.


Check out the step-by-step instructions below to add some visual flair to your playlists on Spotify.
