Playlist track numbers gone.

Solved!

Playlist track numbers gone.

Previously, there were track numbers to the left of each song in a playlist. Today they are gone and replaced by a musical note. This sucks. Now we have no way to know how many songs are in a playlist. Additionally, when I'm arranging a playlist I like to ensure good distribution of different artists in a playlist by placing a song by a given artist every ten, or twelves songs, or whatever. Now I have no way to do that. Sometimes on a really long playlist I will place songs from a particular artist every hundred tracks. Now that's impossible.

 

Is there a setting somewhere I can change to get the track numbers back? PLEEEEASE??????

EDIT: The track numbers are only missing from my Christmas playlist. Do I have to take the word Christmas out of the name to get the track numbers back?

Hi @XPerryMental,

 

Thank you for reaching out to the Community!

 

What you mention is normal behavior if your playlist includes both music and podcast episodes. This way you can differentiate between each kind of content. 

 

Could you confirm if this is the case for your playlist? If it's not, please share with us the URL so we can look into it.

 

Keep us posted.

Yep. That was it. THANKS!

These are also the tracks I use on spotify and klingelton kostenlos. They are very interesting and attractive

This is no longer the case, all playlists now lack track number. Why!?

Hey @Thenewchicken,

 

Thanks for your reply. 

 

As mentioned by @MafeG above, the behavior mentioned is expected if your playlist includes both songs and podcast episodes. That way, you can differentiate when a playlist includes podcast episodes.

 

If that's not your case, would you mind sending us a screenshot of what you're seeing on your side? If possible, you can send us the link to the playlist so we can take a closer look at it. You can follow the steps in this article to do it.

 

Keep us in the loop!

Sorry, I guess that was just a temporary glitch. The numbers are back?! Same playlist, no episodes. Thank you. You may delete my responses, if you can.

Hi, I seem to have the same problem - track numbers dissapeared with a music note symbol appearing instead. It affects only one playlist, there are only songs on it, no podcasts. I tried closing and re-opening the app, I tried re-logging (multiple times) and even tried to just wait it out, but it's a few weeks later and nothing.

Any ideas how to solve this?

Hey @noxtrev,

 

Thanks for reply and for the info shared.

 

In this case, we'd like to gather some additional info. Would you mind sending us the make/model and OS of the affected device along with the Spotify version you're running there?

 

On another note, would you mind sending us the link to the playlist in which you noticed this behavior? You can share it with us by following the steps in this article.

I use Spotify on a laptop with the newest update of Windows 10 (updated it today) and app version 1.2.6.863.ge7902f05

Hope that helps 🙂

Hey @noxtrev,

 

Thanks for your reply 🙂

 

After checking thoroughly your playlist, we noticed that one of the added songs is in fact a podcast episode, and that's why you can see the numbers. So, you can easily find it by searching for this iconon the left side of the playlist.

 

The content that is causing this behavior is namely Where is the justice by Death Note Musical (English). If you remove it, you'll once again see the numbers. Because the content was uploaded as a podcast, the behavior you've observed in your playlist is to be expected.

 

Hope this clears things up. If you have any questions or need anything else, the Community is here for you.

Hi. I somehow haven't noticed that icon even tho I went through the playlist many times. I guess I just assumed that if i hear a song it's a song. The numbers are back to normal.

Big thanks for your time ❤️

I have never been able to see track numbers on my android phones. Currently using Samsung A52 with version 13 software and I have the latest version of Spotify installed. No podcasts in my playlists. What is my issue?

Hey there @Woopit

 

Thanks for getting in touch about this here in the Community. 

 

We can confirm that it's currently not possible to see the track numbers on the mobile app, only on the desktop app.
