Spotify for Android - playlist folders not supported

Casual Listener

iPhone owners have been able to use folders to organise Spotify playlists for over 7 months now.  What is the delay for the Android version?  Folders are an essential part of the user experience and should be consistent across all operating systems, so why are paying Android customers and the worlds fastest growing mobile platform being ignored?

 

I had cancelled my Spotify Premium subscription for this very reason, as I found it totally impractical to scroll through endless playlists that are usually neatly organised in folders in the desktop version. 

 

Spotify please, some news on this front would be greatly appreciated.

I quit my premium service today and gave as reasons the lack of folders for playlists.

Yes, please! I've been a loyal supporter of Spotify, but they really need to step up their game in supporting development for folders in Android!

Hey guys,

 

Just to let you know playlist folders for Android are in the works, and they should be included in the brand new app.

 

If you haven't tried it out already, a Preview version of the new app is available here. Playlist folders currently aren't implemented yet, but as the site says  - they'll be in place shortly.

Playlist folders will be available in Android soon. Keep an eye on the Spotify blog. 🙂

I concur. This is also a feature I have been waiting for. It seems most all Android development has stopped.

This should be absolutely straighforward to implement. All the functionality is already described for other platforms, it just needs to be converted to Android code. I've no idea why we're still waiting but my Premium account is starting to look like bad value for money.

Not only the iphone, but also, in terms of userbase, the marginally existent Windows Phone platform has folder support in its Spotify application. One would assume that the fastest growing platform would be supported in the most active manner possible. Android IS the fastest growing platform.

 

So, what's up? Is Spotify being extremely lazy or arrogant on this point? Knowing there's not much competition for them in many areas of the world where they provide their service one tends to say arrogant.

With more than 80 playlists the Android app is hardly usable, in my experience. So please add this feature ASAP.

A week has gone by and guess what?  Not a word from Spotify!  What a surprise.  Like with Get Satisfaction, the company seems to set up these "support" forums so paying customers can basically support themselves. Nice. 


On the other hand, there are nowhere near enough of us complaining about this problem, this should be at the top of the forum every day if Spotify are even going to take any notice, let alone do something about it. 

 

Short of mass cancellation to the Premium service, which I can't see happening, the only other option I can think of is to find a well known, high traffic Android user (e.g. journalist or celebrity) who can Tweet or blog a wake-up call for Spotify.  Thoughts?

Still waiting for this most basic of basic 'features' (if you can call it a feature even).

 

Seriously how hard can it be to add subfolder support into the code ??

 

(It's lacking from the Tivo app also making that completely unwieldy)
