My Question or Issue

What the **bleep** is wrong with Spotify.

From the new Update on, I cant just tap on the song I recently added and expect Spotify to keep playing the songs in the playlist. No, now the playlist plays from bottom to top and not from top to bottom. This means that I need to scroll down a little, so spotyfi can play my recently added songs, until it reaches the newest one and ends playing.


What's your problem with me guys? I am German and its me who is supposed to make complicated solutions to easy problems, not you.


Okay. I use the three dots in the corner to sort my playlist from old to new, and start the newest song, not at the very bottom. This might fix my problem, right? NO! It now just starts playing from top to bottom again. Are you messing with me Spotify?

Hi @Swite_,


Thanks for posting in the Spotify Community!


Spotify is currently aware of an Ongoing Issue causing the play order to be reversed on the mobile app for Android, when playing tracks from playlists that have been sorted by Recently added.


I recommend following the suggested steps provided in this Ongoing Issue's Status Update, giving them at least 2 attempts to see whether they resolve your issue:

  1. Restart the app by force closing it on your phone
  2. Log out of your account and back in again

I then recommend adding a comment to the Ongoing Issue to let the team know whether these steps fixed this issue for you.


If you’re still experiencing this issue, make sure to include in your comment the requested information listed in the Ongoing Issue's Status Update, as well as to add your +VOTE to it. It will also be useful for you to Subscribe to the Ongoing Issue thread by clicking the three dots next to its title; that way, you can be sure to be informed of any relevant updates.


Let me know if you have any other questions, and have a good day!
