[Desktop][Playlists] Add ticks next to playlist titles to mark that song is already added there.

Hello!

 

So recently got an idea of adding ticks next to  playlist titles which will be useful once you are about to add new songs to playlist.

 

When choosing which playlist, ticks will be next to playlist titles to mark that song is already added there.

 

Ticks could be shown in both ways of adding song - when playlist titles appear when doing right click and also when dragging on playlist in sidebar. But make them visible only when adding songs.

Hey Spotify, why are you marking this as a new idea? The same idea (ok, different implementation proposal) has been submitted before, e.g. here https://community.spotify.com/t5/Closed-Ideas/Playlists-See-in-which-of-my-Playlists-a-Song-is-in/id... with close to 4000 votes and the only thing you could come up with 2 years ago already is: "After serious consideration, we’ve decided not to introduce the ability to see which playlists a song is in."

While the proposed ideas are all about improving the User Experience, your "solution" of the "duplicate song" popup is just annoying.

You also said "Although we’ve decided not to implement the feature as described, we appreciate all the feedback the thread generated, and rest assured we’ll use it to inform our decisions going forward." Well, that's just marketing speach. There is not a single indication that playlist content feedback is improving. YouTube has had it for years now and it is super useful.

Now we're at it, you may as well consider the other way around: to tag songs (in any album, in any other playlist, whatever) to indicate they are already in one of your playlists.

On an ending note: I really like Spotify, but the way you let users handle playlists is still rather cumbersome after all these years. Of course, I understand all of these are just opinions, but then please give us some insight into why Spotify decided not to implement playlist content feedback.
