While this is a solution its a terrible workaround for a large playlist. The developers should really implement a means to filter playlists by most played, most recent ect.. on both the mobile and desktop platforms.

I did this and it worked but when I use my Macbook (my prefered device), it doesn't show up the same way. Can somebody help me please?

How easy! Never saw the search box before unlit I scrolled a second time when reaching the top. Thanks! Have wanted to do this for years!

I believe that “ideally” there should be a setting we can enable so we can add newly added songs to the beginning of the playlist rather than the end where it makes no sense, I added a song that I wanna listen to, to the end of my 100 song playlist.  It just doesn’t make sense.

Hi,

I am using an iOS device with the latest version of Spotify. Follow the steps to re-order/sort your songs according to release date (or also title, artist, custom):

 

1: Go to your playlist on your iOS device

2: Pull the screen down to then show a search bar with three lines next to it

3: Click the three lines - this will open the 'Sort By' menu

4: Select 'Recently Added'

 

Your songs will now be sorted from newest to oldest.

This doesn't solve the issue for several reasons. The "order" of a spotify playlist is tracked, but invisible to the user (except in how the list appears when unsorted).

 

Sorting by date added is not the same as reversing this order. Also, you may add many songs at once, and sorting by the date added field header does not provide the desired outcome in this case.

 

Adding a menu option or submenu option to add to the beginning or end of the playlist (or adding a toggleable option on the playlist itself that allows users to choose whether songs will be added to the beginning or the end of it would be invaluable to users - this API would be especially useful in conjunction with other playlist management services that people combine with Spotify like IFTTT)

Your solution is helpful only to people who have a small amount of songs in a playlist. I have 600 in one of mine, so doing that would take me hours. It would be AMAZING and probably helpful to many users if you added a feature where one could sort songs to “recently added to the top” as opposed to oldest added at the top etc. I don’t want to delete my old songs, just want to not have to scroll for a minute to get to the bottom for the ones I’m loving currently (: thanks!!

WAIT!! There is this feature at the top of the playlist in the search section that someone pointed out earlier and I hadn’t seen!! Haha never mind.

Definitely this helps but I think the main idea is to have the option to put on top the new tracks you're adding to your Playlist.  I have been working with different platforms that allow me to put the new tracks added at the top of my Playlist this is a very useful thing, you save a tone of time and more when you have a daily updated playlist with over 500 songs or more... you waste too much time editing and moving the songs.

 

My point is that other sites give this option is clear that Spotify can bring also this and you would make a tone of users very happy... I included.

Absolutely with you my friend this one is a very useful tool that we need ASAP on Spotify, currently some other applications or sites give you this option.  Please do this possible. 

 

Cheers!!!
