Cannot drag a song from the "Now Playing" in the "Play Queue" to a Playlist

Cannot drag a song from the "Now Playing" in the "Play Queue" to a Playlist

Plan: Family/PremiumPlan



Device: MacBook Pro 2017

Operating System: macOS Mojave 10.14.1


It is not currently possible to drag the song in now playing to a playlist


Reproduction steps:

  1. Create a playlist (not a shared one if that matters)
  2. Begin playing another playlist
  3. Click on the "Queue" button
  4. Drag the song in the "Now Playing" to the playlist on the left that was just created
  5. Tooltip while dragging just shows "0 items" and therefore will not add the song to the playlist


Right click the song, select "Add to Playlist >" and find the new playlist to add the song to. This is more difficult to do than drag&drop.
