My Question or Issue

I have some playlists that I have been adding music to over the course of a few years. Currently the sorting of the playlist defaults to oldest on top, newest on the bottom. I am aware of how to re-order my own view of the playlist such that the newest is on the top and the oldest on the bottom, however my question is how can I ensure others who follow my playlist will see it in newest -> oldest as well. 

 

In my research so far, it doesn't seem easily doable. However I do follow several playlists curated by artists I like on Spotify (like the one below) and those playlists are ordered the way I would like to order mine. One of the workaround I came across was to essentially remove and rebuild the playlist each time a song is added, despite this being an annoying process I would assume it would also necessitate others to refollow the new playlist, making it unpractical for my purposes.

 

Any advise on this would be greatly appreciated.

Idk if there is a feature to automatically do this.

You would probably just have to manually move a new song to the top every time you add a song.

How:

Go to "edit playlist"

Press and hold the 3 lines on the side of the song you want to move.

Move it to the top.

 

Not the most efficient, but only thing I can think of that would work for this.

So this would sort it for others who are viewing the playlist as well?
That's totally workable as a solution for the scale I'm considering.
