FAQ

 

Q: How do I sort the Liked Songs playlist?

A: Much the same as you would any other custom-made playlist, but:

  • On iOS, you need to tap Filters (versus Peter_6-1585398001396.png)
  • On Android, you need to tap Sort Liked Songs (versus Sort playlist)

 

Q: What about Made for You playlists (Discover Weekly, Release Radar, Daily Mix)?

A: It’s currently not possible to reorder songs in Made for You playlists, since these are updated on a regular basis according to your listening preferences - you can find out more about that here.

 

A workaround for this is to copy the songs from one of the above playlists to a new playlist created by you, but you’ll have to do this on the desktop version of the app.
