Bring Back Album Auto Playlist Naming when Creating

OK, not sure what update it was, but everytime I now create a new Playlist from an Album on Android app, it now asks me to name the Playlist from scratch, instead of auto filling the Playlist name with 'Artist - Album Name'. INFURIATING is not the word! Please Please Please change it back! 





Update: This idea has been reposted here.

Your idea was submitted a while ago and unfortunately didn't receive the amount of kudos needed to stay active in the ideas board (100 Kudos per year). 

In order to keep the Ideas Exchange clearer I'll close this idea for now, but this doesn't mean Spotify rejected this idea.

If you think this is an idea which needs to be implemented, you're welcome to post it in slightly different again 🙂


Have a nice day!

Marked as new idea.


Yes, please!  This is BEYOND frustrating!


It's back! The latest version of Spotify for Android ( has a repeat appearance of the "you must name your playlist" nanny. When creating a new playlist, instead of it automatically inheriting the name of the album or song, I must now type in a name. This "bug" was first seen a few months ago and was thankfully corrected in the next version. Now it's back. Please revert to the old way again. It is a real pain typing on an Android "keyboard".


Before the last update I was able to create a playlist of any album that i liked and it would automatically name it using the artist name — album name and that was a time saver. Now they removed it. Can we please have that back.

This is a really annoying change by Spotify. I add albums to new playlists all the time. The ARTIST - ALBUM naming worked great. Now it creates the playlist name as MY PLAYLIST #n which is annoying. There is no change to the way this works on the windows desktop app so why on the android app?? 


So freaking annoying! Spotify devs are just so stupid!


Bring back the old behavior: when creating playlist from an album/release, pre-fill the playlist name with artist & album name. As far as I remember, there was a button to the right of the field which allowed to clear  this - so in the minority of cases where this is not desired, it's a single tap to get an empty field and start naming.

I fail to understand why you changed this.


Why was this marked as a new idea? It used to work until recently! Please fix it!!!


I reported this a while back and was told it was the "expected behavior." If it's not fixed soon, my expected behavior will be to switch to a different service.


Yes! Whats up with this? This is the only way i save albums.  Spotify much less enjoyable for me now
