Problem with long titles in classical music

There are numerous complaints about the inability to see an entire song name if it is long. This is a particular problem with classical music, in which you can't tell which movement a selection represents, but it can be a problem for any song with a long title which isn't displayed in its entirety.

 

I've found that the way to see the entire name of a song is to press the menu (. . .), then "Share," then "Post To."  At this point you can see then entire name for the track.  Wouldn't it be nice if the menu included a choice for "Info," which would display the full title?  Or even better if a long press on the song would display the full title?  It seems this could be implemented and would partially solve a big problem.

 

I do understand that real estate on the display is quite limited, so the solution isn't easy.  This could be a big help, though.

This problem was first posted in 2012; It's June 2016 now and still no action by Spotify.

Same for me, in a playlist, it's a pain in the **bleep**. At least show the complete title as tooltip when we pass over with the mouse.

I also have experienced this problem on the iOS app. I would very much like to see this issue addressed, especially since it has come up in multiple topics and suggestions in this community (a quick Google search yields several over the pay few years).

Yes I agree too I hope that we can click on the dots and it will show us the full title but until then keep updating the app and waiting for the feature to come out

One possible solution is to strech the window containing spotify

Easy for me as I'm using dual monitor at work... But still, you can strech one end, drag the window further out of screen and strech again, until whole text is visible

Try that, worked for me (ugly and irritating though) for classical music

I have no hopes anymore that Spotify will do anything about this problem, they don't care at all. 


A little thing to help (on pc) : Click and drag the song (like when you are going to add the song to playlist) this will show a small tooltip with the song title

Yes, this is very annoying.  How can we get Spotify to fix this?
