Hey there!

 

It seems that one of the organisation settings at the top of your playlist may have been selected. Check the top of your playlist and see of any of the column headings looks like the Artist one below.

 

 

If it does, click on it a couple of times, and it should go back to normal.

Re: Created a playlist and cant rearrange songs....

Hello: @croozn33

I take you are running an android spotify apo. If you load up a playlist and then swipe down from just under the big shuffle button, just an FYI here you do need to be a permium subscriber in order to play in the order that you wish to. But if you are permium keep swiping down from underneath the big shuffle button until you see then a filter screen. On the far right is a kind of odd looking three line icon, tap it, you should get filter options. If this does not work you must be stuck in shuffle mode, and either need to be a permium user to turn it off or need to go back to the playlist view and tap on the current playing song at the botton to show the Now Playing Window, to turn shuffle mode off here look to the lower left for a double crossed arrow turned green, keep tapping until it turns back to grey. Does this help any?

Re: Created a playlist and cant rearrange songs....

GUYS. I FIGURED IT OUT. all you have to do it go on the tab that is clicked, for example, song, artist, album etc. thats on the top of the playlist, and click it twice or three times and then youre going to be able to move the songs in the playlist however you like. i was getting frustrated with this too but i just figured it out.

Finally solved. 

 

You can only sort stuff if none of the columns selected for ordering AND you have Queue play mode selected!

 

Spofity, you need to fire all you dumb UI/UX experts it is just nonesense.

Re: Created a playlist and cant rearrange songs....

Ever since I downloaded the new update I am not able to rearrange songs in a playlist.  I have tried everything.

Hey :)

 

What do you mean rearrange? 

Playlists are only sortable by clicking the headings at the top to reorder the list. You can't manually set the order of a playlist when any of the headings are selected.

Re: Created a playlist and cant rearrange songs....

no not the playlist but the songs within the playlist.  I was always able to move around songs within my playlist and now i can not.

Re: Created a playlist and cant rearrange songs....

Have you sorted the playlist by clicking on one of the column headings? If the playlist is sorted that way, you can't manually rearrange. You have to unsort. I had that problem, unsorting fixed it.

 

See the earlier reply in this thread, it explains this, too.

Hey guys :) 

 

You need to see the post earlier in this topic. 

You can still reorder playlists providing none of the column headings are highlighted in a different color to the rest. You can deselect the column ordering by clicking on the heading until it is no longer selected.
