[All Platforms][Playlists][Premium] Preview song samples when adding songs to playlists

Status: Good Suggestion

Bring the ability to preview songs when adding them to a playlist back, it makes it extremely hard to find new music to add to a playlist cause you no longer know what it sounds like without listening to it separately from the add songs list. The feature made it supremely satisfying to make a new playlist and removing this feature ruins the likeability of the app for both me and many other listeners. It's a extreme mistake and I'd highly recommend to add it back not only for ease of UI but for general expansion of music exploration.

Hey! Looks like your idea is growing up fast and it's amazing! We are going to change its status to 'Good Suggestion' now and we hope it continues being supported by more and more users.
Thanks again for your suggestion. We really appreciate it 🙂

It's back 🙂


This would be great to have on spotify app:


This feature is already live, right? I'm able to preview songs when adding it to my playlist.


Yes, the feature is live, at least for paying users.


Back when I had the free version of Spotify, I could click on a song and it would play at the middle of the song for about 10 seconds, and frankly, I kinda miss it


Ho ElijahP. The feature is back for paid users. It is not for the free version?
