Unhide Songs?

Casual Listener

Since the latest Spotify update, which moved the "hide this song" option to the top of the track options menu ahead of "add to playlist". I've clicked and hidden a few songs that I actually liked. 

 

These new hidden songs don't appear in the normal "Hidden" playlist at the bottom of the library playlists section. 

 

Will you be adding a new hidden section, to "Unhide" these songs?

Hey @alexcole,

 

Thanks for reaching out to us about this!

 

The 'Hide this song' feature on mobile works locally, so that when you hide a song in a certain playlist, it will appear grayed out and become unplayable, but only in that playlist. You can undo this by clicking on the three dots next to the song in that playlist and selecting the option from there - it should now be playable again.

 

Just to confirm, is this what happens for you too? If not, could you let us know how it differs for you? If you could provide an explanation with some screenshots to go with it, that would be great.

 

Thanks - keep us posted!

Dear Support,

 

I had the same problem and have to say.

 

No, what you propose is no longer possible.

 

At the moment spotify was playing at random,

 

I was also confused how your UI design led to implement this hide function. Which is probably a rare thing to do anyway.  Even on top of the menu ??? replacing motoric remembrance from the add to playlist option. To me utterly insane move.

Please move this to the bottom of the menu.

 

Also if you proceed to use this function. Make sure you have a management box inside the control panel or elsewhere, where you can unhide songs globally. not by first having it too look op manually. this does not make sense.

 

I also accidently hit hide song whilst I did not know the track.

 

Struggling through the menu to make sense of this weird feature, plus realizing the placement of the hide song option, made me rather mad.

 

Please fix this before we lose more songs to the hide song black hole.

Hi Peter

 

I checked within playlists and what you say is true. The hide this song option greys out the song, until you unhide it within the three dots menu.

 

My problem was that within a playlist radio, I came across a new song. Wanting to add it to one of my own playlists. Going to the three dots. The hide song option placed at the top of the menu would trip me into clicking it. Then the song disappeared and I wouldn't know how to find it again.  

 

However, trying to to do the same thing now, the hide song option is no longer within the playlist radio three dots menu. So looks like this has been changed/fixed already? 

 

I did also uninstall and reinstall Spotify recently. So this might have been an update crossover issue. 

 

Thanks Peter!
