[Android][Playlists] Remember Playlist scroll position

Currently for playlists I have created myself, the scroll position is reset to the top if you leave the playlist screen and return to it, ie. viewing play queue, or switch to another app. This doesn't happen when playing music from an Artist or Album.

 

I propose remembering the last scroll position for the currently playing list.

 

Thanks

I tweeted Spotify cares on twitter with the same suggestion and they told me to post it here, but looks like someone already noticed it too!

Spotify has told other users that this is a feature, not a bug. Well, here we are giving them constructive Feedback: DELETE, EXCLUDE, KILL THIS FEATURE. Never ever again make any list scroll back to the top while the app is open or minimized. It should work just like iPod. You are on a playlist, leave it to see something else and when you get back to the playlist it is still displaying the same track it was when you left. 

There is nothing to add to this.

It's a douchemove to implement something like this new "feature" without even making it a option in the settings. So annoying to scroll down every time. I seriously hope they see and heed this suggestion.

I really hope this is resolved soon, as it has been extremely annoying while changing songs. Some of my playlists have 400 songs and all of the new ones get added to the bottom of the playlist, which I have to scroll to the bottom if I want to play those specific songs, every single time I want to change the song to something that may not be in the queue.

You beat me to it!  As a paying customer this "feature" really pisses me off.  I want to turn it off but it's not even an option.  In a playlist of 500 songs it takes forever to find where I was each time I turn my screen off or do anything else on my phone.  FIX THIS SPOTIFY or I'll be going back to the free version!

I have several playlists with 400+ songs that I listen to daily. This is a **bleep**ing pain bull**bleep** feature. Atleast give us an option to turn it off! Running latest update on Spotify and Android marshmallow.

Super annoying 😕

 

Please put it back the way it was. So that when I return to the app (and the playlist) it will show the same position and not jump back. Playlists can be quite long.

This is beyond ridicilous, I cannot fathom how any self-respecting developer would think this odd and inconsistent UI behaviour would be a good idea, and at that have the audacity to not even make it optional. In fact, this is so annoying that if it is not addressed any time soon I will cancel my half-decade long subscription and never look back.
