My Question or Issue

Whenever I create a new playlist from an album I want to listen to, Spotify automatically adds the number 2 at the end. I go into the album view, click the elipses button, Add to Playlist > New Playlist. A playlist gets added to the left side with the artist name and album name, but it adds 2 as if this is the second instance of the same album playlist, even when there is no other instance. 

 

I've been having this issue for about a year now. It's easy enough to change, but gets tedius after I have to do it to every single playlist-from-album I create. It doesn't happen on other platforms (Android, web player) becuause those platforms don't automatically name the playlist. I'd much rather it have a default name then no name at all, but I just can't figure out why it's adding a 2.

Hello!

 

I just did a clean install of my Spotify client and I'm seeing the same issue as you. It doesn't happen with every playlist that I create though. It indeed seems like Spotify thinks that there is a playlist with that name already but there actually isn't or at least there isn't anymore.

Haven't found a solution yet, except to manually edit every one as I create it. It's a huge pain.
