My Question or Issue

When I rearrange the order of playlists on my computer it shows a completely different order on my phone. Not the order of songs, but the actual order of playlists in my library. I've put playlists into folders and then they end up in different folders on my phone or not even in a folder at all. 

 

Is there any way to change the order of playlists on the phone?

Hi @bwawa

 

Thanks for the screenshots!

 

In this case, I'd recommend performing clean reinstall of your Spotify app. It's different than regular reinstallation.
Just find your device in this article and follow the steps provided there. 

 

After that, make sure to log in to the right account and choose the custom order in your library to mirror the one from your desktop app. 

 

Keep in mind that you'll have to redownload your music for offline listening. 

 

I hope it helps!

Hi @bwawa

 

Thank you for reaching out here in the Community!

 

To make the order on your mobile reflect the one form your desktop:

  • go to your Library, 
  • go to the list you’d like to filter (t.ex. Playlists), 
  • pull the screen down, 
  • choose Filter, 
  • choose Custom order.

Now the order should be the same as on your

desktop.

Choosing Custom order does not match my desktop.

For example,

 

Here is what the order of playlists look like on my desktop:

Here is the order of the playlists on mobile:

As you can see, they do not match and I can confirm that the filter mode is custom. There are even some playlists that are inside the "My Playlists" folder that should not be there and vice versa.
