[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.


Just do it.  Stop wasting money on trying to take over the podcast world, which was  free and open and quite frankly better off without you [spotify].  Instead focus on music which is actualy better with you and make the music listening experience even better.  Such a simple request. Do it.


Listen to the people. Resume playlist feature on previously listened to playlists!



I really want that feature!!! I aways want to return  where I was in playlists


I am really thinking about switching to another app because of things here are being taken care inappropriately. No track numbers on Android and not remembering position. Neither one nor the other. This is really Major inconvenience when you have huge playlists. Terrible app.



I was looking for info on the feature to continue a playlist on Spotify and I saw this has been requested over a decade ago (!) And Spotify has decided not to do anything about it, without any reasonable explanation as to why not. Very unsatisfying for a service for which I pay 18 euros per month 😒

Yes indeed. This is why I dropped the service and found alternatives much
cheaper and companies that take user feedback



Which service do u use? Does it have this functionality?


This option would make Spotify a real replacement for Radio, especially in the car. As it is now, for example when changing from an audiobook to my favourite heavy metal album, I have to search the last position in the audiobook manually, once going back to literature. This is in the best case annoying. 

The fact that first message of this thread was written 12! years ago (yes years not month, weeks or days) is not giving me a lot of hope. It might be time to do it thorough search for alternative providers. After all, I’m paying a lot of money for my family account - and the fact that as someone based in Switzerland I have to pay as well the Swiss premium is not helping at all here.


This is a basic feature which is bugged or never has been implemented and even shouldn't have to go through

"User Ideas".


I also posted a idea regarding "open playlist at the position of the currently played song". It's so annoying when you play a song of a long playlist like liked songs and you want to go to the songs position. right now on the iphone you have to manually scroll


This idea has thousands of votes and yet spotify is ignoring it. I am really thinking to switch the streaming provider.


This would actually be very useful for podcasts:


1. Listening to music

2. Fancy a podcast episode

3. Pick up where I left off in 1.


Now I have to take note of the playlist and song I was listening to in 1. before I hop into podcasts.


This definitely should be a feature: the ability to save and restore “listening sessions” at will.
