[iOS][Playlists] Make entire playlist descriptions visible on mobile

Status: Case Closed

After typing in my full idea for my playlist description on a desktop, i saved & realized that it was too long and didn’t show the last half of it on my phone or desktop. Maybe make it so that the whole description can be seen, instead of only half of it and an ellipsis.

Hey everyone,


This idea has been inactive for quite a while now.


We've discussed it internally once more and this is not something that we plan on implementing in the foreseeable future and will be setting the status to closed, to match our new Idea Exchange statuses.


More info on why the idea has been closed can be found here.

Yeah!! We need that!


In mobile version, i can't see nothing about the descriptions...


So, It's November 2020 and the same problem still exists. It is important to note that it's not OS dependent! I have Android 11 and also have the issue. Suggested fixes do not work (like clean install, etc.). It appears to be design. Why they would give you 300 characters for a description, then only show 150 on mobile is anyone's guess.


Hey! It’s late December- this was brought up in March as far as I can tell. This seems like an incredibly easy fix. Please update it!


Please implement that! I don't know how Spotify team let such thing slip through their app


Yeah, this really feels like a mistake/oversight that an amateurish, incompetent app will make, not an amazing and professional company like Spotify. 

I agree. This is a dumb oversight. @Spotify please correct ASAP

I absolutely agree 100% with previous posters.  This should be a very simple fix for a company with as much money and mind-power as Spotify.  Just make the playlist description text expandable or scrollable.  Hope to see this improvement soon.  Thank you.


C'mon guys! We're still waiting! Such a little detail!!
