Adding my voice to this as well.

Being able to sort Newest to Oldest and being able to see what date songs were added to a playlist is very important in shared playlists.

Please bring this back.

You can sort either way and see when songs were added. Maybe you have to zoom out to make the column visible.

I am also having the same problem sorting by recent date added on my desktop after the update.  There has to be a way to fix this.  Please fix it as it I use my playlist to teach yoga and I update regularly.

Hi folks! 


Thanks for reaching out about this here in the Community. 


Sorry for the delayed reply. We've just come across this thread.


You should still be able to sort your playlists by recently added songs in the new desktop client.


In this case, make sure to click on the "Date added" text at the top of the playlist. There's a green arrow next to it after doing so, and the songs will be sorted from oldest to newest. If you click on "Date added" again, then the newest songs will be at the top.
