Difference Between Spotify Playlist And Spotify Queues

A playlist is essentially an album of tracks that you have personally created or added. You can create multiple playlists according to genre, artist, mood, etc. A playlist can contain up to 10,000 songs.

A queue, on the other hand, is a temporary list of songs that you can add to or remove from as you hear them and is limited to 100 songs. When listening to your queue, it will automatically end when there are no more songs left on the list.
