Mark newly added Tracks inside the Playlist


Why did you guys remove the option to see when a track was added to a playlist? And the green dot next to the playlist when there was a new song. This just ruins how I found new music.


Please bring this back!

The new song dot will be coming back in a future update to the Spotify desktop app.


The option to see when a track was added to the playlist is still there. Look for the column with the calendar icon. It will show how long ago the song was added to the playlist.

Marked as new idea and edited the title slightly to make it easier to find via search. ;)
As mentioned, this feature will be back in the desktop app but Spotify hasn't given an exact timeline yet. Any updates for that feature will be announced in this topic here.

Hey folks! We have plans to bring this feature back. I'll mark this as 'watch this space' and update you here when we have news, thanks!


Following a playlist is in my case useless without this feature. I used this to discover new music. Hopefully it will be back soon.

 I'm glad it's comming back. But I'm clueless why it was removed at all.

No, the option to see when a song was added is only available in playlists, but it's been removed from local files. This needs to be brought back.

Can you please bring this feature back? I used in on a reagular basis to check new music added to the playlists I follow. I wont update the app until you bring this back. Thanks, Joao


Please bring back this feature! :)


 So so so glad this is coming back. I'll resubscribe to premium when these features have returned ;-)


This makes me very happy.


Thank you Spotify for listening to the users!
