[Playlists] Scroll automatically to current Track Position

Is it possible that the playlist moves with/after the songs its playing? Example, when you press play at the first song on top of the playlist you can see the song it’s playing. But when it changes songs to the bottom you still see the top. It does not move with the song its playing.

Good idea

Yes. This idea is specially useful on shuffle mode when you're listening to a huge playlist.


I am tired of having to scroll through my big playlist squinting to see where I currently am while scrolling. On top of that, some times the song is not green cus it's playing as if another place and not my playlist. For example when switching from mobile to desktop


It's also good to have a scroll bar for playlists in IOS as well. Can't believe why IOS version doesn't have this while Android app has. Insane decision from Spotify


To me, this looks like a bug. This is very annoying on longer playlists.

Would love this!

I also requested this in an Idea that got marked as a dupe of this one.


It might have to be slightly nuanced - e.g. if I'm scrolling through my playlist at the time of a track change, I probably don't want to suddenly skip.


please add a visulaizer, i would be happy to even pay a little extra for it. it brings a vibe when a visulizer is on, and turns the song alive. i was on itunes prenium or something but recently changed to spotifiy prenuim and enjoying way more then before but adding this feature would be great
