Marked as new idea, which is a repost of this inactive idea.
I too, have about 2000 songs in my playlist and it's incredibly annoying to have to scroll manually... Apple music UI has it by alphabetical order, Android Spotify has the scroll bar, iOS apps don't have any...
I'm not sure when this changed, but as of not too long ago this has been working. One thing I/you may not have caught is go into your song list, scroll to the top and order by alphabetical. The quick letter scroll bar will appear. This functionality isn't in individual playlists though.
This works in Songs, Albums, and Artists.
Super annoying and really does make navigating long Playlists nearly impossible.
Thank you for this! I've just got an e-mail from the Spotify office (they replied in under a day), saying I had to post the idea on the ideaboard and get 100 votes.
Luckily, there are more people in this world who share my concern. Have we got an update on the status of this idea?
Any update on this, how hasn't this happened.
I've got no clue why this isn't implemented already.
Spotify seems to keep updating the UI with superfluous things like bigger/smaller controls or changing the position/place of certain buttons.
Stop doing those uninteresting things like A/B testing your UI and start implementing that scrollbar.
As an iOS developer myself I know this isn't rocket science, you can easily implement this with such a large scale team.
It's 2019 and this suggestion/annoyance has a history dating back to 2016. There's no excuse.
This make me want to cry. I just moved over from android to an iPhone. I have to tap like a mad man for 1 minute to play a recently added song. Every.single.freeking.time. Sort**bleep** out Spotify If this isn’t fixed in the next few months I’m moving to Apple Music.
This is a joke...
There's a small solution inside the application to our problems.
If you scroll up inside the playlist, you see a search bar.Right next to the search bar there's three horizontal lines.
If you press this button, you can either sort by:-Recently added
Yes please, scrolling through a 700 song Playlist is a task otherwise.
I'm surprised Spotify still hasn't added a scroll bar/button feature (especially for mobile) that allows users to quickly scroll to the bottom of their playlists. It is INCREDIBLY frustrating to scroll through a playlist with over 500 songs using your finger to repeatedly swipe the screen until you finally get to the bottom. This is something that should have been thought of and implemented long ago. If the design & development team at Spotify are serious about making their platform 'user friendly', then this should unquestionably be at the top of their priority list.
