Users cannot sort songs by Artist








Samsung Galaxy s7

There is a thread related an enornmous issue with the spotify UI that is over a year old with over 30 pages of people incredibly aggrivated with its functionality and Spotify recent updated the thread to say it was resolved in which it is not the case and every comment on there will back that up. Spotify has removed the functionality to sort your liked songs by artist UNLESS you actually follow every artist you have a liked song for.  This is a huge issue when you have thousands of songs already saved and than this awful updatd occurred which did not automatically follow the artists for which you already had songs saved so you now have no way to sort your music. You also can no longer save an entire albums songs all at once. You can save the album but then you can only find it under Albums but wont find those songs under liked songs or under an artist (because that artist wont show up unless followed). You have thousands of people taking the time to post on the community complaining about this issue, an issue about functionality that the app actually used to have might i add, and have just ignored it. The resolution comment from spotify said to start a new thread if it wasnt resolved so here you go. Simply give the people back the sorting controls that the app already had a year ago!

Hey there @drumbum6


Thanks for reaching out - we’re here to help!


We’re often testing and launching improvements and new features. This means you might see something on the app your friend doesn’t, or get a new feature to try only temporarily. 


We suggest you check this help article for more info about test features.


Tip: Make sure you don't miss a thing by enabling automatic updates on your device.


Hope this helps. Let us know if you have any more questions. 

  • How do you figure out if something is being tested?  The original thread says "implemented" which would lead you to believe that it has been added to the app?
