Playlist auto-naming changed – again?

Playlist auto-naming changed – again?

Like many people I'd like to organize my library with album playlists. The auto-naming of an album saved as a playlists in the format «Artist – Album» was very convenient even though it has to be done on the Mac desktop client, since it wasn't working on the Android mobile app. 

After the last major client update the auto-naming in the Mac desktop client was changed to only include the album title (or EP or Single) and I cannot think of any reason for that change. 

I understand that the album as an entity has maybe lost the importance it has had for so long, especially for the top streamed artists on Spotify. But even so, that should put more emphasis on the artist name and not less...


TL,DR: I would love to see the following changes: 

  • Bring back the «Artist – Album» format for auto-naming playlists
  • Standardize the playlist auto-naming for all platforms and clients
