Please add 'year' to filter

I love the update - but why on earth don't you add 'year' to the album search filter? I want to find all my saved albums from a particular year. There's currently no way of doing this, and the best we have is 'recently added'. It's frustrating as **bleep**, especially if you have hundreds, perhaps thousands of albums that you want to save.

 

To get around it - I have to organise all my albums in playlists and folders.

Hey @jameslondon74.

 

Thanks for reaching out to us about this - glad to hear you like the new Your Library look 🙂

 

There's an idea to introduce the ability to sort your albums by year - just head here and add your vote to it. If enough people vote, Spotify will consider implementing it.

 

Hope that helps! Hit us up if there's anything else 😉

got it. But i actually found a different item to vote for as the one you
referred to wasn't quite right. How many votes does an item need for it to
be considered?

Sure. It's here:

https://community.spotify.com/t5/Live-Ideas/Your-Music-Order-by-release-date/idi-p/4683678

 

It's currently at 246. How many votes does it need to be considered?

Hey @jameslondon74.

 

Thanks for that 🙂

 

This Spotify Answer explains how the Idea Exchange works, and how many votes are required for an idea to be considered.

 

Hope that helps!
