Clicking on every song individually is so pointless. I have to waste more time clicking everything instead of hitting the save button. I realize that some people just want to save the album and not all the songs in their library, however, I think it would be better if you guys could provide 2 options (save every song or just save the album) instead of forcing both types of users to comply to 1 or the other option.

Hi everyone

Not sure if this has been resolved yet but I have just stumbled across something which makes it easier to save an album to your ‘Liked Songs’ playlist. 

In the top right hand corner when viewing and album there are 3 dots to bring up a menu. The top option is to like the album. A little further down is an option to ‘like all songs’ which seems to add them to the liked songs playlist. 

Hope this helps a few people out 👍

Thanks! I didn't notice before.

That didn't quite work for me on Android. Going to an album up clicking on the "..." button to pull up the menu dosn't provide any option to like all the songs.

 

BUT, if you see a list of albums, like under an artists's page, then to the right of an album's entry, there's another "..." button, and then menu there DOES let you like all the songs at once.

 

On the desktop, there's no option I can find anywhere to like all the songs on an album. You can add it to your library, though, which is not really a library anymore, especially in the app.

 

@Katerina Does this sound reasonable to you? I understand that you're not in charge of making these design decisions, and are simply doing your best to help when people have trouble using the app, but the reason we're having trouble is that the design is an absolute mess. Can you pass that along to someone who can do something about it?

So as others have stated I now have the option to add all the tracks from an album into my liked songs, as well as having the album in my albums section. But this is infuriating!!!!!

 

The desktop app used to do both if you clicked the save button, now I have to remember to do it manually.

 

This is the dumbest feature, it makes no sense in that I no longer have somewhere to shuffle all my music or see, in order, all the stuff I've added recently.

 

Very upset!

This is brutal! I'll forget about the album if this is what I have to do. I live in my "Songs" (now Liked Songs) library. No workaround at all?

I really don't like this new 'feature'. All my downloaded songs is under my liked songs. Sometimes I download albums just to listen and then like some of the songs. I don't want the whole album I downloaded under my liked songs. Don't get this at all. I started trying to fix it, I literally don't have the time to go remove 'like' from every song I don't want after this

Yes, I recently noticed this as well and replied to another post with this information. Now they should let us multi-select several songs (either from an album, playlist, or artist page) to be able to save or add to a playlist. Currently it looks like you can save ALL songs on an album as you described OR have to save each song one by one.

@GrawlixL, yes, it seems only the 3-dot menu in list view, not the album view. Album view seems like the more logical place. Actually, it should have been in both places.

 

I'm still getting use to this update, but I don't hate it like a lot of folks here do. I don't love it either. My bigest complaint is they need to add in more flexibility and batch processing.
