PLEASE CONSIDER AN UPDATE FOR IPHONES WHERE WE HAVE A SCROLL BAR. IT IS INCREDIBLY ANNOYING TO HAVE TO SCROLL THROUGH A VERY LONG PLAYLIST WITHOUT IT. ANDROIDS HAVE IT, PLEASE DO IT FOR IPHONES!

The new version of Spotify for iPhone is terrible. The most annoying thing is the omission of the quick scroll feature where it allowed you to scroll down playlists alphabetically and quickly. Not sure why they would do away with this feature...

 

BRING IT BACK!

This is a no-brainer, anyone who uses this app to its full potential will find them selves scrolling for what seems like forever to find music they have in their larger playlist.

Shame on spotify for not having this. And they even had the audacity to remove alphabetical scroll bar on iOS recently

Current state is so annoying, currently listening to an audiobook-Playlist with 100 Albums and literally thousands of chapters, scrolling down takes forever... no bookmark-function and no scrollbar, why do you make it so user-unfriendly guys? (That’s the playlist I am referring to https://open.spotify.com/playlist/0IEZlqkdiOb5gqjsPIEtD3?si=WZkxDjWzTYGxiQQwuVVPoA

Spotify version 8.5.19.947 on iOS )

Please bring this back, or just add an "jump to end of playlist" button.

very annoying that this isn't there...will it support the grabbable scroll bar in iOS 13 that has been talked about at least?

Casual Listener

Yes please! We need this! It was fustrating making that transition from Android to my iPhone and discovering that wasnt an available feature. Why? Its a simple feature that has already been implemented for Android.

Yo how is this request not implemented yet? Come on spotify! 😂😂😂

@ all this technically works now, but no thanks to Spotify

 

The scrollbar is now grabbable in iOS 13!

@btwalsh Yay! I tested here and finally (even if it's an iOS 13 feature rather than a Spotify feature) it's working. I just noticed that for big playlists (mine has about 1500~1600 songs) Spotify paginates the loading of the playlist, so the scrollbar also cannot go directly to the end of playlist like on Android. But through it all, it's a great advance!

 

Thanks for reporting this btw!
