[All Platforms] Remember Position in Playlist / Album

Please remember the current song playing in a playlist so if I switch away to a different playlist and then switch back, Spotify will know where I left off.


I often can't finish a playlist right away or my mood changes so I might switch to a different playlist. Later, I want to finish the previous playlist, not start over again.

Hey everyone,


This idea accidentally ended up in the wrong board, so we're moving it back here. 


We're keeping the Not Right Now status as we don't have any immediate plans to implement this. As soon as we have any new information to share, rest assured we'll check back in here.


Take care.


After more than a decade, somehow we don't believe you will ever make this basic change.


Because shuffle is broken (has been for years; different thread), it's hard to hear the songs at the end of a long playlist. But then it occurred to me: if Spotify would just remember where I am in a playlist, then I wouldn't have to shuffle anything; I could just loop the playlist and eventually here all of the songs in a playlist. Why hasn't anyone thought of this?


Then I saw this monster thread and lost all hope for humanity. Corporations are trash, and we, the customers who fund them, are to blame.


Amusingly, Spotify actually curates some very long playlists. You know it's hard to actually hear all of the songs in a long playlist without some kind of manual bookkeeping, right?

Correct on all accounts

That’s why I cancelled my account and expect when enough follow, that will get their attention. Spotify will be desperate, implement the feature and offer discounts to come back.

Just adding my +1 to this long-awaited feature, whose absence of it almost entirely diminishes my Spotify user experience to zero.  


All of my playlists are long, and I always want to continue where I left off in a playlist.  

Of course as that is why you might want a long playlist. Spotify is missing the boat and I switched to Xm and just Bluetooth my own playlists

function that you can mark your position in an album. e.g. in audiobooks 




How hard could it be?


this has been requested for so long you should make it a reality! Would be super helpful as a future PE teacher making playlists for classes so every student could hear their song, but songs could still be shuffled.


Audiobooks are pointless without being able to bookmark them. Please add this function Spotify.
