I agree completely. The new UI is absolutely awful and the worst possible use of screen real estate. I can only see 5 playlists to select from on a 5.2 inch screen. Not to mention when items are listed by album arts, where I can only see 3 album arts and I have to scroll all over. It feels like I'm looking at a UI through a 3X magnifier 🙂 This view also isn't consistent with the rest of the screens. When I go into one of my playlists, it doesn't even list my songs in there, unless I click on "preview". This is really bad UI, with unnecessary touches and clicks everywhere. I truly hope this is just an experiment...Was about to come back from Apple Music and sign up to family premium again, but this kinda puts me off.
PS.: Fire the UI/UX desinger.
