My Question or Issue

on iPad and iPhone:
Normally, when you select or enter a playlist, a big playlist icon appears. And when you scroll down a bit, a search bar with a sort icon appears. 


however, on one of my playlists, the playlist icon is missing and I can’t scroll down to get the search bar and sort button. This issue appears every time on both my iPad when I enter the playlist. 

I have tried reinstalling Spotify only for the problem to be fixed once and break after I use the feature once 

This problem only appears on one playlist. The only difference of this playlist it is has a  lot of songs and have about 77 Horus of play time.


this is causing massive inconvenience for me as I have lost the ability or sort songs by recently added.


thank you for everyone spending your time on looking into this

Hey @addinikio,


Thanks for posting in the Community.


We've tested this on our end using a large playlist, but we couldn't reproduce the issue. Can you please try creating a new playlist and adding the contents of the one you're having issues with using the Add to other playlist feature from the 3-dot menu and checking whether the issue persists there?
