My Question or Issue
This may or may not be related to a defect that was fixed recently regarding large playlists not loading in Android Auto (see https://community.spotify.com/t5/Ongoing-Issues/Android-Auto-Playlist-not-loading-fully). Although the playlists now load and play, the LIST of Playlists itself loads very slowly in Android Auto. After selecting Playlists from the Android Auto Spotify home screen, it will take between 30 seconds and 2 minutes for the list of playlists to appear. I have organized my playlists into about 17 folders, so it is this list of 17 items plus a few playlists I haven't put in a folder yet (because I can't do that with the Android mobile app, and because I don't have a convenient desktop) that takes this time to load. Then, when I select a folder, it takes ANOTHER 30 seconds to 2 minutes for the playlists in that folder to show. This is essentially unworkable in a car while driving.
I'd be happy to provide additional information if needed.
