I lost permission to control my playlist.

Device

iMac Desktop 2015

Operating System 10.14.6

 

Last night I did a security update to my Mac.

Security Update 202-002

 

When I went into Spotify and clicked on one of my playlist, the layout changed. The picture was on the right, and I had no "edit playlist" option under the three dots, nor could I alter the playlists details, like title or picture. I also couldn't reorder the songs. So basically my playlists are there, I just have no control over them.

 

I have reinstalled Spotify twice, and always the same result.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

I meant picture on the left instead of on top.

Re: What happened to the sort feature?

Casual Listener

I found this feature because the were several websites, going back months and maybe a couple of years, telling how to sort by BPM to help runners keep their tempo. It was only in the web player. Now it's not in the web player OR in the desktop app OR the android app.

My Question or Issue

My spotify desktop player is the web player. I don't know what the **bleep** is going on but it switches back and forth between the web and desktop player, but it's mostly the web player. This means I can't:

Find albums after I click on them. Like, it disappears from the artist page. Here's a video for proof: https://streamable.com/rs9m2

See what friends are listening to

Search songs and click on them

sort my albums/library by artist or title

it's really annoying. what do i do.

hey @jjonnn,

 

i have the exact same issues. My discussion has been going on for a while now but none of these people (moderators or whatever) have actually come up with a solution. All they say is that this is a 'test' but i can't find anything about it. 

This whole thing is like a huge downgrade and i'm honestly getting kinda sick of this s*** now.

Some actual answers from them would be really helpful and not always these automated answers which say all the same thing but help nothing.

If you find a solution i would really appreciate your information.

i installed it in december via the spotify website (windows desktop version like years ago on my old pc) because i got a new (also windows) computer. it was all running fine until this happenend. then i deleted and reinstalled it via the webiste and via the link someone put in this discussion before, multiple times.

and no it has nothing to do with my pc because it was running fine on it for months until this s*** happened.
