My Question or Issue

 

Is it possible to see playlist descriptions on mobile (for android)? When I click on the playlist, I only see the title and a few of the songs in the playlist. What can I do to show the description?

 

Thanks

Hey @mixalis-mic13,

 

Welcome to the community!

 

You should be able to see the description by heading to the playlist and swiping left on the cover. It'll show the description, who made the playlist and the play-time of all the songs.

 

We hope this helps,

Hi there @Tom,

Thanks for the reply! Sadly this doesn't work for me (I've attached a video of me trying) - am I doing something wrong?

 

Thanks

Hey @mixalis-mic13,

 

Sorry for the confusion! When you using Free some playlist descriptions will show, but not all of them. 

 

If you check out a playlist like Today's Top Hits, you should see the playlist descrption at the top with a slightly different style banner.
