iPhone owners have been able to use folders to organise Spotify playlists for over 7 months now. What is the delay for the Android version? Folders are an essential part of the user experience and should be consistent across all operating systems, so why are paying Android customers and the worlds fastest growing mobile platform being ignored?
I had cancelled my Spotify Premium subscription for this very reason, as I found it totally impractical to scroll through endless playlists that are usually neatly organised in folders in the desktop version.
Spotify please, some news on this front would be greatly appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.

This should be absolutely straighforward to implement. All the functionality is already described for other platforms, it just needs to be converted to Android code. I've no idea why we're still waiting but my Premium account is starting to look like bad value for money.

So, what's up? Is Spotify being extremely lazy or arrogant on this point? Knowing there's not much competition for them in many areas of the world where they provide their service one tends to say arrogant.

A week has gone by and guess what? Not a word from Spotify! What a surprise. Like with Get Satisfaction, the company seems to set up these "support" forums so paying customers can basically support themselves. Nice.
On the other hand, there are nowhere near enough of us complaining about this problem, this should be at the top of the forum every day if Spotify are even going to take any notice, let alone do something about it.
Short of mass cancellation to the Premium service, which I can't see happening, the only other option I can think of is to find a well known, high traffic Android user (e.g. journalist or celebrity) who can Tweet or blog a wake-up call for Spotify. Thoughts?

Still waiting for this most basic of basic 'features' (if you can call it a feature even).
Seriously how hard can it be to add subfolder support into the code ??
(It's lacking from the Tivo app also making that completely unwieldy)

Just to let you know playlist folders for Android are in the works, and they should be included in the brand new app.
If you haven't tried it out already, a Preview version of the new app is available here. Playlist folders currently aren't implemented yet, but as the site says - they'll be in place shortly.
