Save playback position when switching playlists [iOS]

Something like a smart saving function for each playlist would be a really nice feature. For example: If I listen to playlist A and switch to playlist B the position in playlist A gets lost. If I switch back from B to A, I'll always have to search for my last song again - that's quite annoying (especially for long playlists). Would be much easier if the app stored the position with each playlist and restores them when I switch back to this playlist.

 

Btw. I'm using the iOS app.

Hi Guys,

there is a old thread, started in 2012, that suggests the same feature. Maybe you want to give kudos there too...

A thousand times yes! Spotify is know for both its long playlist - many with six plus hours of music and for suggesting playlists based upon mood and time of day. How can one possible appreciate both of these things if your place is lost everytime you switch between playlists?

This would be a small thing to implement, but a huge thing in terms of usability.

 

I use spotify for music discovery.   I often will play one of the curated playlists like a radio station, saving songs that I like.  It is a pain when one restarts spotify, or switches playlists based on mood, only to have go back and scroll through a long playlist guessing where you left off last time so that you can resume playing again music that you haven't heard before.
