Add all Songs of a Playlist to the Queue

I have a Playlist with 114 Songs. Not too much. If I press the Play-Button, not all Songs are added to my queue. I've counted them and only 83 songs were added, not even 100. It doesn't matter if it was on shuffle mode or not.

 

This is very frustrating, because listening to Playlists becomes senseless when I can't listen to my Playlist, as I created them and wanted to.

 

So if there is a limit Spotify adds songs to the queue, than there should be the same limit while creating a playlist. Why should I add 10000 songs to it, when only ~80 songs get played?

 

Or let Spotify add ALL songs of my Playlist to my queue, so I can actually listen to them.

 

I had this issue on Desktop as well as on Android.

The playlist queue will show a limited number of tracks but the system will play your entire playlist. The queue works on a rolling algorythm so once a track is played another one is queued up - there's a continual add to the bottom of the list as tracks from the top are played. The systen will not cut you off at 83 tracks.

Hi. You really know how their system works. Why do you think they don't show the total # of songs? Or have they "fixed" this?

It most certainly does cut you off.
I have a playlist of 3700 songs.
It loads 100 into the queue.

When the 100th song is done playing,

the music STOPS. 

If you press play, it reloads the same EXACT queue as before.

I don't think that it is this way. In my case that doesn't help.

Why the **** this is marked as solution???

Hi.

That is happening to me too. The songs fade out at the bottom of the screen, and that's where the music stops. Hitting play, plays the same songs. I would really like somebody from spotify to look into this.

How is this marked as solved!?

This is Clearly not the case!

I have a library of more than 1000 songs, when I go to the Songs tab on PC and press play only about 100 songs are added to the queue and when they finish playing the music stops...!

I'm playing the music on shuffle (but it happens also without shuffle) and when it stops and I press the play again and then shuffle it shuffles the same songs that I already played!

So not only the queue featute is broken but the shuffle is broken too and plays same queue each time!!! this is ridiculous for a paid software and supposed to be utmost importance!!!

 

please fix this asap.

 

Regards

This is definitely NOT solved. When it gets through my Play Queue, it restarts from the beginning with the first song I played. 

 

Let's get a real solution to this.

I agree.  This issue is not solved IMHO.  For me on Android, the queue limit is about 83. It appears to load another batch of songs when it gets to the "end" of the queue BUT it seems to do that you have to actually play that last visible song.  I pay for the premium version mainly to listen offline in the car so it gets even more frustrating to have a limited "visible" queue.  Basically all I really want to do is have ALL of the downloaded (or otherwise) music in a playlist be available in the queue after I hit shuffle on it (even if I have to pull down for more would be fine). 

I won't get into the known "limited shuffle/random" issue too much here as but I suspect they are related.  The limited queue and shuffle issues are eventually going to be dealbreakers for me.  Sadly I have tried a couple of other platforms and they have similar queue/shuffle issues.  These seem like very basic features to me.

This isn't a solution, but it might help a little? If you're on desktop and go to the playlist, you can press Ctrl+A and then right click to add everything to queue (my longest playlist is only 262 but it added all of the songs for me). Huge con of that they don't get shuffled, but I've found that sorting by name usually mixes up artists and albums pretty well.

Again, definitely not a solution (Spotify, we're waiting!) but a limited workaround for when nothing else works.
