Let users create album collections (in addition to playlists)

Some users like to collect albums by various topics

  • My favorite punk albums 
  • Need to listen to
  • My all time favorites
  • ... 

Playlists do not fit this need if like to listen to full albums. 

Album collections should then also have a shuffling and collection radio.

Is this really not a feature on Spotify? Maddening. Not great for a paid service. Any prospect of this coming?

Hey @VMARKUS_K.

 

Thanks for reaching out to us about this.

 

What you could do is make a playlist out of an album by clicking on the three-dot menu and selecting 'Add to Playlist'. You can then add this playlist to a folder along with other playlist albums :)

 

Hope that helps! Let us know if you have any questions.

That is not what I am looking for. I want to sort albums by categories.

A playlist makes is complicated to browse only the albums a select a
specific one.

This would be an immensely helpful feature - creating giant "Playlists" of things like "My favorite Hip-Hop albums" or "My Favorite 70s rock" makes it VERY messy for those who would like to listen by album. Playlists work best for collections of individual tracks, not albums.

 

In its current form, Spotify's user-controlled music organization is VERY poor, especially for a paid service. This simple option would definitely help a lot
