Way to prevent duplicates in playlists.

I have big playlists, and would like a built in way to prevent duplicates from occuring in my playlists.  This could be an option to prevent, or select/hide duplicates.

Hello everyone. Spotify here. With the latest release of the Desktop app, this feature is now available across Desktop, iOS and Android. Thanks for the feedback. Enjoy!

I like to sort all my songs by playlists. Sometimes I add songs twicely (eg song released as single and then included in album). Spotify knows that I like songs like this and recomend it to me. I may forget that I already added it in my liked songs and special playlist and will add it second time. It create a chaos in my library.

 

Spotify already have a feature that check if song already in this playlist but in works only for current song and ID3 tags should match 100%.

I suggest to check not only for 100% match but for next tags:

1. name of song;

2. artist.

 

It should be enough to avoid situations like this. On my screenshot you may see same song from same artist but in different albums.

Can someone IMPROVE this feature so that the same songs from different albums aren't duplicated in playlists?

@EBReggie that's not a feature I want personally. As some artists I follow will release demo versions and variants of the same song with the same title on other albums (without marking it as a demo or a variant)

I would like the song title to include the reason it is different (year_liveplace_remix_demo_sensored_etc).
