The addition of folders to Spotify was a crucial improvement - it allows you to build up a personalised music library with playlists sorted for example according to genre or artist. But the folder structure has now been removed from the web API. The knock-on effect is that the folders are now no longer visible to Sonos users.
Like many Sonos users, Spotify is is my principle source of music at home. Personally, I have literally hundreds of playlists organised in folders. However, they now appear in a giant jumbled list. My lovingly-curated music collection assembled over the years has thus become unusable.
Deezer at least provides an option to order favourite albums alphabetically by title or artist, but even this isn't possible with Spotify.
The removal of the folder structure is a major downgrade in Spotify's service. Please join me in urging Spotify to bring back folders!
