[Your Music] Creating "Collections" of Albums

I have an idea that could make using Spotify better for people who put a lot of effort into managing their music libraries (and for everyone else as well).

 

Collections menu in Your LibraryCollections menu in Your Library

 

The idea is simple: Being able to create collections or lists of whole albums. Of course you could just add albums to regular playlists but then it just adds the songs separately, which is messy, so you can't easily see which or how many albums are there in the list or checking if there are missing songs.

 

You can add and remove whole albums to collections, much like songs to playlistsYou can add and remove whole albums to collections, much like songs to playlists

 

By having album collections we could easily see which albums are added to them and it would make it quicker to select certain albums for downloading by toggling the download button of a collection containing them. We could also re-order the list of albums quicker than re-ordering a simple playlist of consecutive albums broken down to songs.

 

This would also make it possible to listen to certain albums in a specific or even random order without having to add every album to the queue one by one.

 

You can download/un-download every album in the collection with one tap, you can also either play the albums in order or shuffle them, or even shuffle all songs within the albumsYou can download/un-download every album in the collection with one tap, you can also either play the albums in order or shuffle them, or even shuffle all songs within the albumsAdding or removing albums from collectionsAdding or removing albums from collections

Hi,

I don't know if you spotify remember this idea but this would be a real game changer for your app! I just don't even understand why there as been no implementation of this idea since then. 

Thanks!

Yes! Help us Spotify! Help us organize our giant album collections!

How many votes does this need for some action?

I'm not sure Spotify are looking at the votes. It's a no brainer but they don't seem to understand that making the app better can only be good for business. This feature would not detract from anything else Spotify might want to develop their app to do!

This would be amazing! Please dear Spotify, this is essential for music freaks. I can't have all my saved albums in just the 'Albums' section, I want able to organize them however I want.

The idea is spot on and I don't know much about collections, but if we had the ability to simply add albums to playlists would be awesome. And if i could create multiple playlists of albums then I could have a playlist of my favorite Dylan albums, or Bob Marley albums, or Christmas albums, etc. BIG LIKE!

Is there any way to repost this idea?

This is Spotify's most needed feature. It boggles my mind that this isn't already available. Please start working on this! 🙂
