My Question or Issue

This recent update has changed or broken things that didn't need changing.

 

I can't add full albums to playlists anymore. The option was greyed out for a little bit, but now it's completely gone, yet is available on the Desktop version!? 

If I long press on an album in the artist list, it does nothing, and then going into the album, clicking the 3 dots, the option isn't there. PLEASE put this back on!! The playlists idea is one of the main reasons I pay for Spotify. I save albums into genre specific lists.

 

Also, if I click on the album artwork whilst listening to an album, it no longer shows up full screen. Please reinstate this possibility.

 

Talking of playlists, will you please remove the automatic nature of putting the most recently added to playlist at the top of the list, at least put in an option to choose what order the playlists show in. I like them to stay in alphabetical order, I'm sure I'm not the only one. It used to show like this. 

 

Why do you constantly feel the need to change things that were perfect just as they were?

I came to the forum today specifically because of this issue.  I used to be able to add entire albums to playlists on Android.  I can't do it anymore (presumably an update broke the functionality).  This is core functionality that needs to be reintroduced.  I use this feature all the time. Having to add individual songs to playlists as opposed to albums will definitely drive me to Google Play Music if it doesn't get fixed in the next couple days.  I have a Spotify Premium account on Android version 9.  I'm using Spotify version 8.5.24.762.

What's happened?  I can no longer save an album as a playlist!!!?!?!?!?!

This for many years has been the main way i organise my music...it can still be done on the desktop, so I have to log onto the PC to now save the album and the option is no longer there on mobile!!!

This is crazy, please fix ASAP!

I would be really interested what Spotify thinks about users: They removed now "multiple select" as well as "Add Album to playlist". Seems like they do not want (power?) users to handle their music library structured. The simple Likes for albums is unusable if you have a lot of albums...
