[Your Music] Creating "collections" of albums for better music library management

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

Exactly this. Spotify, please please add this. Sorely needed feature for people with large music collections.

I would love this! I hope someone at Spotify sees this and they implement it!

This is an amazing idea. I realised the absence of this was a problem a couple weeks ago. I want a way to separate my different types of playlists from one another.

exactly what I miss most on spotify. Managing songs/music is one of the worst points in spotify. even the "search" function is not working properly...
