My Question or Issue

ive never used the spofity community before, so i dont know if this is the right spot to post this, but i cant reorder the songs on my playlists anymore. there are a ton of other things wrong with the android app (seriously, it's terrible but im too used to this stupid app to change) but this is kind of the nail in the coffin. starting today ive become unable to reorder my playlists. i heard that spotify sometimes tests or removes features at random so i think that may be what's going on but im not sure. anyone else with this issue? any advice?

Hey there @uwuyeehaw,

 

Thanks posting here in the Community! We'll gladly help you out.

 

Could you make sure that your playlists are sorted by your custom order? To do this open the Spotify app on your Android device, open Your Library, click on the Filters button next to the search bar and select  sort by Custom order. The app should then mirror the order on your desktop device, where you can drag and drop the playlists to rearrange them.

 

If these features are missing or not working properly, it's possible that the apps cache has gotten corrupted. This is usually resolved by performing a clean reinstall using the steps in this guide. 

 

Hope this helps. Let us know how you get on.

So I can't reorder on Android? I have to do it on desktop?

Hey @Tar999,

 

Thanks for posting here 🙂

 

In case you want to reorder by Custom order on your phone, you will need to first rearrange the playlists on desktop so they can sync up.

 

Other sorting options such as recently played or recently added can be chosen while using the mobile app. Here you can find more information about the filtering options.

How can I rearrange the songs in a playlist?

It's me the first time asking this community

Kindly clear this doubt!

Hi @Grace60,

 

Thanks for reaching out about this in the Community and welcome 🙂

 

You should be able to arrange the songs in your own playlists exactly as you want in a Custom Order. The easiest way to do this is on the Desktop app where you can just drag the songs to their desired position.

 

On mobile, you can open the playlist > Hit the 3-dot menu > Edit playlist > Drag the songs to their desired position.

 

Hope this helps. Don't hesitate to reach out again if you have questions.
