[Mobile] Bring back album length in playlists

Status: Fixed

In the latest iOS update, it is no longer possible to view the length of an album or playlist.

This information was previously available either at the end of the tracklist, or by swiping left on the album art at the top of the tracklist.

It would be wonderful if this was brought back again.

Hey folks,

 

Thanks for your patience while we looked into this issue.

 

We’re happy to say that this should now be fixed for everyone!

 

Make sure your app is updated and perform a clean reinstall just in case.

 

Thanks! Stay awesome 😉

Just disappeared for me on Android, so infuriating

Spotify is starting to p me off. Changing features that aren't broke and removing things like this. I'll always check how long an album is, especially because half of them are special editions now that go on for double the usual play time. I'll jump platform is this isn't sorted out, I mean which fool of a took thought to remove it?

You can still see it if you add the album to your library and go through there but it is very frustrating.

Album length is back for me now, without an update. I wonder if something had failed at the server end?
