My Question or Issue

With the latest update (Apr. 2021), I can sort podcasts only by date and length (interested feature!). But I miss/can't find how to hide played podcasts. I hope that I can't find and not that this is not implemented 😢

 

This is it! Hope that this can be fixed.

Cheers, Marko

This function existed on Mac/Desktop. 

Why has it been removed with the update?

 

I'm not spending time each day sorting through stuff I have already played.

Please sort this out or I am leaving SP.

The problem is that most users don't look or care but those of us who use the apps more fully do. The hide played episodes was essential where you have podcasts going back 10 years or more. You can't use newest first because they don't play in order and, for me, it's often a case of catching up on 5 or more episodes.

 

Having to return to the app often means it isn't working for your users = sooner or later they look for an alternative which in turns reduces your subscriptions.

I came on this message board because I have the same issue.  I just started using Spotify for my podcasts because some of the ones I listen to are now only  available in this platform.  I absolutely will not start sorting through many years of "Played" episodes.  This is unacceptable.  Has there been an update since your last post?
