[Android][Playlists] Automotive sort option playlist

In the Spotify app in the Android Automative software (not to be confused with Android auto app, that's different!), there is no way to choose the sort order of music in a playlist. For example, I have a playlist where I add new music every week or day. In my mobile/laptop/tablet Spotify app I can sort the newly added music at the top. In my Volvo XC40 P8 with the Android Automotive software and the included Spotify app there is no option for this. Music in the playlist is always sorted as old -> new. That's not how many users use it and is very annoying.


Please add a sort option in the Spotify app for users to choose.
Thanks!

Hey Spotify people! Music lovers like to create and maintain their own playlist. That's why it is super annoying that playlists in new Volvo's and Polestars (and future cars with Android Automotive) always start with the oldest songs. Sorting would be great, but I guess that I would be happy with newest on top for now. Thank you!

Thanks!
