When you name/rename a Spotify playlist, make sure to use a name that is easy to pronounce or something that relates to the genre. This will help if you use voice assistants like Siri to give a voice command to open or play your Playlist. If you use a difficult name, then the voice assistant may not process it and provide you with no result.
