[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.

Is this a joke? It’s 2021 and i still can’t read the full descriptions.

You’re better than this, Spotify!

Your idea has been submitted a while ago but unfortunately hasn't gathered enough kudos (100 per year). In order to keep an overview of the active and recent ideas in this forum, we will have to close this idea for now. However, this does not mean that your idea has been rejected by Spotify.

If you still feel strongly about your request I encourage you to post your idea again in a slightly different form! Maybe now is the right time to receive the support of the community for your suggestion!

Do you have any further questions on how the idea exchange is managed? Just click here!

I would really appreciate having this feature. It feels like it should be easy: just tap the ellipse or a read more button and the rest of the description expands or pops up in a little box. At the very least tell us where the cut off line is when were writing the description so we could make it fit for ios.

2022, nearly 2023 and still waiting for this feature 😞

no because why haven't they added this feature??? it's a completely reasonable request... matter of fact they should just get rid of playlist descriptions on mobile altogether if they're not gonna be functional💀 

please.

I hope this gets added soon. So frustrating for longer playlist descriptions
