Secrets Of A "Play Next" Button

Secrets Of A "Play Next" Button

How about a feature that plays a song you selected, immediately after the track already playing and ignore what may be next on the current playlist or album?

Hey @AndreasMelhede

 

Thanks for reaching out about this here in the Community. 

 

We moved your post from the Ideas board to the relevant Help Board, where it fits better.

 

You can choose what you'd like to listen to next by adding it to the Play Queue. You just need to follow these specific steps.

 

If you have any questions, just let us know 🙂

Thank you for sharing,  Eni.

So, what if you have 10, 100, or 50 songs in the queue? How does this solve my idea? 🙂

Hey @AndreasMelhede,

 

If you're referring to songs that you've already added to the Queue, but you want a specific song to play immediately next the one currently playing, you can move that song to the top of the Queue by dragging it so it'll play next. You can find how to do so in the article that @Eni shared above.

 

Hope this clears things up. The Community is here if you need anything else.

 

Cheers!

Not exactly.

Imagine this situation:

You are listening to a playlist of yours and suddenly your friend suggests that you play "As" By Stevie Wonder, which is not on your playlist. This is a beloved song that you haven't listed to in a while, so you want to listen to that song, but you simply want to go straight back to your Queue straight after. Now, where is that button on Spotify to fulfill that desire of yours?

Hi again @AndreasMelhede,

 

That's exactly what the Add to Queue option does. If you're listening to a playlist of yours and want to listen right now to a song that is not in the playlist, but you want to continue with the playlist after that one song, you just need to add that specific song(s) to the Queue and it'll play right after the currently playing song ends. Then, when the selected song ends, your playlist will continue to play in the same order it was before, so the original queue will be unaffected.

 

To add a track to the Queue, just follow these steps:

 

For mobile:

  1. Tap  (iOS) /  (Android) next to the track you want to add.
  2. Tap Add to Queue.

Tip: On iOS, you can also swipe right on a track to add it to your queue.

 

For desktop:

  1. Right-click the track you want to add.
  2. Click Add to queue

Remember to take a look at this article, where you'll find more info about the Play Queue.

Doesn't exactly satisfy the user. I understand what the problem is because I just came here from using the spotify app right now and I was facing this issue. If you queue playlist together and you add another song to the queue afterwards it goes to the bottom of the queue and you have to drag that song through hundreds of other songs just to get it to play next. Meanwhile a play next button would easily solve this problem. Other platforms have it and its very efficient.
