Hey @alexhoward8.

 

Thanks for providing those screenshots.

 

The update to Your Library hasn't been rolled out to all users yet, but soon will be rolled out to everyone.

 

In any case, could you let us know your exact Spotify version?

 

Thanks! We'll be looking out for your reply.

Hey @alexhoward8.

 

Thanks for letting us know.

 

As I mentioned, this is gradually being rolled out, so hang in there - you should have it soon.

 

Take care!

Just to make sure I understand (as I have the same version of the app): are you saying that a new version of the app is rolled out that solves this issue? 

To be honest: the desktop version isn't any better, at least not mine on Windows 10. It also does not cluster my downloaded music by artists, it shows all of the albums in a list - sure, I can sort by artist, but it is still one BIG list and not clustered by artist. It is just the much larged screen on the desktop / laptop that makes this bearable. On the mobile it still forces you to scroll through hundreds of albums to get to, say, ZZ-Top. 

The artist view on the desktop only shows the artists I'm following, so it's the same unsatisfactory UX on both mobile and desktop ... at least for me.

Hey @mlaux66.

 

Thanks for your question, and apologies for the confusion - we're saying that this is not an issue, but rather expected behaviour.

 

There is a Spotify Answer which explains how saving music to the new Your Library works after the recent changes - just head over here.

 

If you're unhappy with the changes, there's an existing idea in the Community here where you can leave your feedback on the changes and add your vote to the original user's idea to revert those changes.

 

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

Hi

thanks for the clarification! Unfortunately, this means for me that all hope for a decent UX is lost and I need to move to a different service. I read the information on the new and expected behaviour that you shared, and indeed it works as designed, but I'm clearly not target audience for this. 

I appreciate of course that this is not a democracy and the majority of users might find this a good solution. That's fine. I wouldn't understand how someone might find this useful, but I do not claim to always be right :-) 

Thanks
