[Android][Playlists] Automotive sort option playlist

Status: Good Suggestion

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!

I think this is actual bug more than it should be request for a new feature. If I have playlist sorted like this then it should be sorted like this every time and everywhere, there should not be something special for AndroidAuto. More to that with knowing that in AppleCar play it is sorted right, from new to old. So you also have big inconsistency between systems, there are total opposites. Also this idea have already 135 votes so please do something about it. If you are going to look at all these similar ideas which you closed due to lack of votes you will see at least 250 independent votes. Thank you.

Hi there, this feature drives me absolutely bonkers. I have no issues with the Android Auto feature other than this. It is dangerous on the road for me to look at my phone and attempt to fix the issue manually, to go to a playlist that way and pick the top song instead of using the car-mode UI that was intended to help me but doesn't. I don't even care that there isn't a sort option, it should at minimum be defaulted to the Sort order the playlist has already been designated as (in my case by Last Added). Thank you, and I hope this gets fixed in the future, as it feels like a bug moreso than a request.
