[Mobile] Create & manage Playlist Folders

It would be nice to be able to better organize playlists in folders on the mobile apps.  Or at the very least, specify which folder a playlist should go in when it is first created.  Right now, in iOS, any playlists that I create are just added to the main list, without giving the option to put them in a folder, and it is not possible to move playlists to/from folders.  I'm assuming this will be the same on Android when it is implemented.

Hey @tjb we're back to give this idea another update. We've chased up this idea with the folks behind Playlist Folders and we currently don't have a plan for letting you drop a newly created playlist into a folder once it's created on mobile. However please rest assured we've passed this feedback on to the playlist teams again and they'll continue to get updates on your comments. If there's any news on this we'll post it here first, thanks!

So good to know that Spotify always listen to their customers, and respond accordingly!

I primarily use Spotify on mobile, and I’m a very heavy user. I spend hours everyday using Spotify. I love your playlists and music discovery. It’s why I left Apple Music. The problem is: it’s so easy to accumulate so many playlists by following ones for different moods and everything. It would be so nice to be able to put these in a folder on mobile. It’s not a deal breaker, but it would be a nice feature.

To me (a power user and someone that likes and needs organized list) it seems absolutely ludicrous that it’s still not possible to create and manage folders on the mobile apps!! Do you guys use iTunes or just don’t like music enough that you just have a couple of playlists anyway?

 

In the real world folders are a necessity, not a luxury..

 

Whats the team so busy with that they don’t have time to make sure (all) these minimal requirements are implemented correctly once and for all? It’s mindblowing guys, this isn’t rocket science..

This is even more important now that the latest IOS upgrade has introduced a do not disturb while driving. 

It is now impossible to change playlists while in the car, so to have the playlists ordered, and in a folder is a necessity now. Just get on with this pleeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaassssssseeeeeee!!!!!

So I'm trying to convert my people from Pandora to Spotify and some of them asked if there's a better way to organize radio/playlists. Putting them in subgroups(folders) is a good idea and I told them they can do it on PC but not on mobile. I'm not an app designer but adding this functionality to mobile just seems like a logical thing to do.

It is absolutely insane that this functionality is not available on mobile. I have folders for my playlists and I can't move anything into them!
