So before Spotify I was a crazy ocd person on iTunes; organizing my songs with every metadata option, playlists for everything including genres, moods, themes, activities, languages, where the song apppears and more. All this to say I take functionality and feauture options super seriously. I listen to a LOT of music (just check the image below of all my folders and playlists!) and Spotify, as great as it is needs a LOT of improvement. I think it was some user I had seen once who had said Spotify is like browsing a file on a harddrive while iTunes/Apple music is like browsing a music store or jukebox. Both aesthetically and functionally Spotify needs tones of stuff.
Bare with me, because this list is long (and I will update when I remember anything else) but here are my improvement/suggestions for features to add to Spotify:
1) ALBUM, COMPILATION AND FOLDER SORTING AND FILTERING
I find it ridiculous how we can sort (by artist, album, name, date added) and filter/search within playlists and stuff but we cannot do the same in albums, compilations (albums with songs from various artists) and folders you make (on desktop only). We should be allowed to do this irregardless the place. This is basic functionality, cmon...
2) MORE VIEW OPTIONS
3) ADDING A SONG TO PLAYLIST
MOBILE (ANDROID) 📱
1) SORT AND FILTER OUT IN THE OPEN
Ok, prior to a useless update the sort and filter buttons where on the top of playlists, easy and functional. Now, you have to click the 3 dots then go down and chose the button to then search and filter... I don't know about you guys but I'm on the run a lot and it's so annoying how long that is just to dearch and sort (on iPhone this is not the case! It's still nicely at the top of the playlists!). Please put that back on the top of the playlist page ok, you make a simple task 8 years to do because you stuffed those options in the 3 dot area where the random other funtions are...
2) ALLOW FOLDERS VIEW ON MOBILE
This seems like an obvious thing, but it doesn't exsist. As I said I have many many playlists so I organize into folders for different themes, genres, moods, etc... and ive always hated how on mobile we can't see our folders, its ridiculous. You guys need to add this, this might be the most obvious feature to add.
Here is the image of my sidebar, how I organize my library for you guys who want an idea how to do it.
