The new 'recently played' feature is a good idea but there is either a bug or it is peculiarly implemented.
I would expect to use it to resume listening to an album or playlist from where I last was but it does not do this. It shows the tracks you've played in reverse chronological order and seems to create a mini playlist from this so it effectively starts playing the album in the wrong order; playing the last track you played, then the second-to-last, etc. This is so unintuitive.
It would be better if you pick the last track and you resume the album/playlist and continue playing subsequent tracks in that order.
Your Idea has been submitted a while ago, and unfortunately hasn't gathered enough votes (50 votes within 3 months) to keep it active in the Exchange. Be sure to know that this does not mean that your Idea has been declined by Spotify.
Don't worry, your Idea will still be able to gain more votes, and may get a Live Idea status if it receives enough of them.
