My Question or Issue

 

Under the new library I no longer have the option to just play all my songs. I have playlist, artist, and podcast. What happened to"songs"? I want to listen to all my music not just specifics. Can someone help??

Hey there @Djcool22,

thanks for reaching out !

 

If you refer to the "Liked" or "Saved" songs you have a tab called "Liked Songs" where all your songs are stored.

 

However, i recommend checking out this Spotify help page on getting to know the new UI.

 

Hope this helps 🙂

Same here! Does that means the all songs now is called “liked songs” ? For future uPdates it would be great to receive a summary of the main changes, specially when a whole option disappears. For the first time, I thought of searching iTunes music. Just spent 30 min searching Spotify site to find out where was the “ all songs “ option !! Very disappointing!

Liked Songs = Saved Songs ??

Casual Listener

It seems that Liked Songs are both Saved Songs and Liked Songs that used <3. 

 

This is one big thing Spotify could improve: the UX confusion between Save and Like.

Then it’s worse than I thought because then there is no way to randomly play your songs

After more investigation it seems that now 'Like' and 'Save' are the same.

 

Playing 'Liked Songs' on iOS will play randomly all saved songs. 

 

However there are still some missing songs.

- iOS says that in 'Liked Songs' I have 6,981 songs

- exporting my 'Songs' list from desktop yields 7,133 songs.

So around 2% of the songs are not in Liked Songs. Maybe because these are songs that were pulled out of Spotify by production companies. I cannot tell.

 

Still, it looks like they now have merged 'Saved' and 'Liked', even if it's poorly implemented in UX:

- heart sign in iOS is a check mark on desktop

- 'Liked Songs' on iOS 'Songs' on desktop

- If I play a Daily Mix, a song that was Saved but not Liked will show

    - a heart in iOS

   - a inactive heart in desktop

 

I guess desktop hasn't caught up yet haha.

What gabaix has said is spot on. The new "Liked Songs" is the old "Songs" list from where you saved by clicking on a plus sign. In the past there was some confusion as we were able to heart a song and also save/add a song. Now they are one and the same. You can shuffle this list as you did before, it's just now found under playlists.

 

As to songs being missing like gabaix described, I have not noticed this. But I have not done any thorough testing.
