Find Current Playlist

Hi There. I'm listening to a playlist that I found in the 'Browse' section that I reallly like. The issue is, I can't find the current playlist that is playing. I can find the individual songs, but can't figure out how to get back to the playlist itself. Any tips here?

I was having the same problem and I got it! In the lower left corner, click in the box that shows the current song playing. BUT you must click in an empty area of the box. Don't click on the album artwork, song name or song title. :)

I don't know if this was fixed in a recent update, but there appears to be a working solution now, even for users who exited spotify mid-playlist and continued playback after reopening spotify.

 

The Play Queue (located through the left-hand sidebar menu, under "Messages") now shows "Playing from __playlistname___ by ___playlistauthor__" near the top of the view. Clicking on the playlist name will take you back to the playlist the song was playing from.

 

Hope that helps anyone browsing this old thread looking for answers!

After last update, "Current playlist" doesn't appear in main menu.

If you click on little album's snapshot (at lower left corner) you will acces to current play list and history (see attached image)

**Using spotify on Windows 8. Version 1.0.1.1060.gc75ebdfd

Hover over the small alburm art and click small arrow that pops up  and it will expand showing larger album art for the current song. Click on the album art itself and it will load the current playlist.

Unless you can get to the playlist by hitting the back button in the desktop client, I think you're out of luck.

If you click on the album artwork in the bottom left corner of the client does that not take you back to the playlist page?

It takes me to whatever album that song is from, not the playlist.

If you started play from a playlist, you should be able to get back to it by repeatedly hitting the back button.

I've found the same problem... saw a playlist at the top of the browse section, and clicked on the play button.

 

I ended up liking the playlist, and want to follow it.... but how??? The playlist is no longer listed at the top of the browse section (it's a time of day based thing??). The back button doesn't work, as there's nothing to go back to (I clicked on that play button as my first action after logging in).

 

I can't remember the exact name of the playlist so searching doesn't help. There should be link to the name of hte playlist somwhere so we can follow it.... but does it exist?

Hi! If you're still listening to a track in the playlist you should be brought back to the context you started playing from if you click on the cover art, located above the player.

Hi,

Thanks for the suggestion but I tried clicking on the cover art and it doesn't work.. the play list has disappeared from the browse page and the cover art doesn't seem to do anything.

 

I tried going to Play Queue> then click on "Spotify" (since it was a Spotify created playlist).. it took me to the spotify playlist page but it only shows the top 50 playlists... and this playlist isn't always in the top50!

 

I'm running desktop client 0.9.8.296.g91f68827

It's also worth pointing out, the "click to go to" doesn't work if you have restarted Spotify since you started playback from the location you want to return too.
