[Mobile] Add / Delete multiple Songs at once

I would like to have a checkbox system for adding/deleting multiple songs at once. It is very time consuming to do them individually.

I was peacefully hearing Taylor swift and I thought “oh I’m gonna add more songs to my playlist” in that moment I realized how difficult it is to add songs because you need to choose the song press the 3 dot button press add to playlist and add the song to the playlist, we have to do that with every song we want, so I thought maybe there could be a way to add songs in a much easier way.

My idea is that on each playlist as everyone knows there’s a 3 dot button, on that button there would be an extra button that says “select songs” in that button all the songs of the playlist will have a check mark, once you select the songs of your choice there’s another button “add to playlist” in that button as the name says all those songs you’ve selected will get added to your playlist once you press that button.

 

In the photos you can see how it would look like, I feel that this way makes adding songs to a playlist so easy, it does not takes a lot of time and is not tiring and boring at all.

I make so many playlists depending on my mood and its soooooo annoying to add each song one at a time!!! I often know which songs I wanna add, so if there are any I need to listen to first, I'd rather just go back after I've bulk selected the ones I know I want.

I think an amazing idea for Spotify would be to allow users to select multiple songs at once, like you can do with photos on an iPhone, then add them all simultaneously to one playlist. I’m not sure if it’s already been thought of/over, but I feel it would make time to find amazing new songs to add and listen over (unlike sticking to my norms). For me, I really hate making new playlists. Usually because I always end up adding millions of songs that I love, and it takes FOREVER. I take up hours and hours to curate myself a playlist for a mood or occasion. I think that being able to select multiple songs to add to a single playlist is a smart thing to develop.

🔹𝙥𝙡𝙖𝙮𝙡𝙞𝙨𝙩 𝙞𝙩𝙚𝙢𝙨 𝙢𝙪𝙡𝙩𝙞-𝙨𝙚𝙡𝙚𝙘𝙩 𝙤𝙥𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣: we need the feature to select multiple items in the playlist by press holding & dragging it down similar to how google photos has that option & then be able to drag those items to one place. because if the playlist is big it's time consuming to move each item up or down when you wish to move multiple items to one place. lack of this feature can make big playlists unusable times.

What is happening? I've had the plus button just for two days and today it reverted back to heart. Why?

Hi Spotify team,I really enjoy the app and the service provided, but have some feedback regarding liked songs and playlists management. I think Spotify should introduce a “select “ function that will allow us to bulk select songs to remove from the relevant list, ie liked songs or playlist.

Thanks for reviewing my idea !

Please at least make it possible to hide the atrocious DJ. Everything about it reeks 13 year old.

Yess!!

Takes a million years to add songs to a playlist because you have to add them one at a time. Would be amazing to be able to select multiple.

My account got hacked and they've liked 700+ on my account while using it. This feature would make it a lot more pleasant from removing them all individually

So, since September 2018, there hasn't been any updates on this frustrating issue about us Spotify members not being able to delete a whole list of songs at one time from a playlist. Why even allow us the use of our mobile phones to be used as a remote to play our playlists if we can't even use our mobile phones to delete a full list of songs from our Liked Songs list at one time? We ALL use Spotify through our mobile phones as our source of music away from our laptops or computers. We need extra space on our phones for other things. We should be able to delete songs from the Liked Songs list if we've already created our own playlists. Deleting them will allow us to release storage space on our phones. Why should I have to go to my laptop to delete songs all at once from a list and not have the convenience of doing it through my mobile phone? Come on, Spotify, get with the times and change this already. Allow us to have this option through our mobile phones and not just our laptops or computers. Jeez!
