[Playlists] See combined list of tracks of playlists in a playlist folder

I would absolutely love the ability to click a playlist folder (mobile and desktop) and see a list (no duplicates) of all tracks in the playlists in that folder.

 

For a parent folder, would of course want to see a list of tracks in the playlists of its subfolders

 

I'm not sure how a GUI layout would look for this. But for example, if I have my folder "House" and I have playlists "groovy house", "chill house", "tech house", and I just want to shuffle all my house music, I would love to be able to hit my House folder and maybe see the main playlists on top followed by a final playlist called "All Tracks In This Folder" or something like that.

I would be interested in the ability to search for tracks in a folder with duplicates visible.

 

Use case: Displaying all tracks within a folder may allow users to edit several playlists at once. For example, I may wish to add many songs back into my library now that Spotify has removed the cap on library size. For another example, I may wish to remove a track or an artist from all of my playlists within a folder. With many playlists, it is difficult (but reasonable) to search by artist or track in every playlist in order to edit each occurrence. Any support for batch editing work would help users with large libraries.

 

That said, I can also see @jimmerson124's use case. Particularly if we're playing music for others, we do not want to hear the same house track twice just because it is both "groovy" and "chill." The smaller the library, the more likely a "duplicate" track will repeat.
