[All Platforms] Remember Position in Playlist / Album

Please remember the current song playing in a playlist so if I switch away to a different playlist and then switch back, Spotify will know where I left off.


I often can't finish a playlist right away or my mood changes so I might switch to a different playlist. Later, I want to finish the previous playlist, not start over again.

Hi folks.

We appreciate your feedback and your votes. However, this idea has been Not Right Now for over two years so we'll have to close it.

We will keep an eye out and if things change we'll come back and provide an update.

Status: New Idea

This is not a new idea by any strech, it was already posted in 2012! I guess this is just Spotify's way of managing stuff they don't want to invest in. But why?


I never miss a new Discover Weekly or release radar, but I think it would be good if there was a resume button of the last song played.


I often jump in and out of playlists so it would be good to go back to the playlist of last played.


Same with albums, if you’ve listened to half an album then fancied a different vibe but want to go back to it. 


I wanted to come in contact with Spotify to let them know a suggestion of mine that just came to mind. I think it would be great if the developers came up with a way to mark where you left off with a playlist. It’s very frustrating not being able to tell how far along the playlist you were when you lasy listened to that said playlist. I don’t know, it seems simple but maybe it’s not. Thank you! 😂


i would like to see a playlist memory function.
if you switch between different playlists (or search for a different song, or close the spotify app) spotify will remember where you left off (also in shuffle mode) and you don't hear the same songs over and over again.


Oftentimes I will be listening to a playlist of my own but see another (maybe in the browse section for example), and want to check it out really quick. Would be cool if there was some functionality to switch between playlists across the service, but have the app remember our place in the playlists rather than us trying to search for it and get the same groove going again.
