A common situation:
1) You love Spotify so much,
you use it every single day.
2) You find a good song and you save it to Your Music,
where you already have zillions of songs
3) So you also want this song into your playlists,
which you kinda sort songs by a personal criteria that works for you
3) But this song happens to fit several of your playlists.. and you wonder:
Q1: Is this song already in my playlists?
Q2: If so, in which one/ones?
Here's a simple solution:
1 ) right-click any song
2 ) show ✔ next to the playlists that contain that song
Extra features (1): Add how many times a song is repeated in the playlist:
Extra features (2): Show ♫ if a song is in your playlists:
With this feature you could browse any user playlist or any search result and figure out which songs are in your playlists at once, without checking each of your playlists manually.
Do you like the idea? Give it some kudos! =)
