My Question or Issue

Since the new app update, there is no way to see the number of songs in a playlist. I used to be able to see this in the Playlists page of Your Library next to each playlist.

 

I was using this number to keep the same number of songs in my 35 library playlists, which I use so I don't have to download my entire library at once. Now I have no way to keep the same number of songs in each of my playlists the way I had been doing, which is disrupting the primary way that I use the app every day. If I can't keep track of what's in my library easily I have lost a large part of why I pay for Spotify and I will look to switch to another service.

 

  1. (P.S. I don't like several of the changes in the new update... I also hate that I can't view the albums or artists of my saved songs anymore, and I liked the save button better than the new "like" feature that has replaced saving songs to my library. If Spotify is getting rid of the concept of a library of saved songs in favor of only being able to make playlists, I will move to a different music streaming service.)

I would also like to know the answer to this.  I no longer see the number of songs in my playlists on Android.

Hey @Samihuc and @jwf6464,

 

Thanks for getting in touch.

 

At Spotify, we’re often testing and launching improvements and new features. When we’re testing, you may see something on the app your friend doesn’t, or get a new feature for only a temporary period.

 

Let us know what you think over at the Ideas Exchange.

 

Have a nice day!

Thanks for the reply Guido.  Is there any way to know if the number of songs in a playlist will again be displayed in the Android client?  For now I have downgraded to an older version of the client (which I was happy to find available out there).

Do we have a solution yet for this problem? Because i'm facing the same issue as the member and I'll also consider to quit Spotify premium if it stays like this

Hey I had a similar problem with the June 11(?) update. The only solution I found was rolling back to version 8.4.97.807 
There's a reddit post that tells you how (but you might have to redownload all your previously downloaded music). Just search reddit for "Way to return to the old design". Spotify won't let me post the URL here.

Hope this helps!

I'd really like to see this come back.  I'm not sure what would have driven the decision to take it away.  It is extremely handy to be able to see the number of songs in each playlist in the "playlist" screen.  That's how I know when new songs have been added to my friends playlists that I follow.  Please put this back in.  It disappeared for me today (6/20/19).  I'm using an Android phone as well.

I agree.  This change is harshing my vibe.  I select which playlist I want to listen to often based on the number of songs I feel like listening to.  Plus it helps me judge

how long I make new playlists.  Not a fan of this change.

Hear, hear. It's a really dumb idea to get rid of this function, I rely on it to always create playlists of a fixed number of tracks, now I can't do that Spotify is much less user-friendly. I can't imagine why anybody would welcome the removal of this feature. C'mon Spotify, you gotta bring it back!

I made an account just so i can comment on this topic.

 

I suspect this is an update bug.  It cant possibly be the decision of some Spotify employee to remove such a basic feature.  Not even some chino wearing peckerhead millenial could make a decision this bad.

 

Next update should restore the feature.
