[Desktop] Show other album releases on desktop

[Desktop] Show other album releases on desktop

The desktop version of Spotify doesn't show the alternate releases of albums, which is very frustrating. The web player shows the other releases as a dropdown under the album, like the old Spotify did, but the desktop doesn't.

Hi there @ratchet303,


Thanks for reaching out about this here in the Community. Sorry for the delayed reply, we just came across this thread.


We can confirm that this option is already available in the desktop app too. If you're not seeing the dropdown menu, it may be because the other version(s) of the album isn't available in Spotify.


If they're available in the web player but not in the desktop app, it's worth running a clean reinstall of the app by following these steps. This can be helpful to get rid of any cached files that might be causing trouble. If you're using Windows, we also suggest downloading the app again from the Microsoft Store.


Hope this helps. If you have any questions or need anything else, the Community is here for you.
