Hi @jerrawa, I can't really offer any insight there, as I'm not privy to that sort of information: I just help out on the forums by moderating the Ideas. I can say that this idea has quickly grown in popularity, so once it's reached 100 kudos, staff will be in here to give a response. 🙂
This is not a feature. I wonder who thought of this lovely new idea. Its just annoying. I thought my app/phone had a problem and not that it is intended. If they really think some people need it, make it a changeable setting. Or just remove this horror 😄
This is important. I would also add to this that it would be awesome if playlist remembered the last song I played from it. I frequently listen to 500+ song playlists and it is pain to try to find the song I was listening last. The only way I have found to do it is to actually write it down the last song onto a piece of paper...
I was specifically told by Julie from Spotify support that this should be posted as an new feature.
Thanks for getting back to us.
Actually, what's happening is normal, but it sounds like a great idea.
We’ll be sure to pass your suggestion onto the right folks here at Spotify.
If you think this is also something other Spotify customers would think is a good idea, be sure to add it to our ideas board. Those who also support your idea can then vote on it or add to the conversation.
We’ll keep everyone updated on the status of your idea.
Any other questions, we're an email away.
Have a nice day!
Also thank you for noticing and finally moving it to the Help section. I will test and see if it has been fixed.
I use the last version of Spotify. It is still affected by the playlist position reset bug. How can I fix this incredibly time consuming pest? I'm a premium subscriber, on a Galaxy S7 with Android 7.0 fully updated.
If Spotify considers it as a bug and prefers to not prioritize it, it's perfectly understandable BUT if they say it is a “feature” they are kidding with their customers. Just somebody gives me a reason to implement this “feature”. What is the advantage of having to scroll down each time when you open your active playlist?
