My Question or Issue

Admittedly, I've been using Apple Music a bit more, and I'm late to the update party. My library is trash now.  I used to be able to view EVERYTHING in the album view, even if I just had one song saved off an album. Where did my songs go?  I actually liked viewing it this way, cause it was an easy way to view everything in one tab.


Another annoyance, is when I click into an album, instead of hitting the first song and it playing, it doesn't play. I have to tap it AGAIN to get it to start playing.  There is a huge "shuffle play" button, but  I don't want to shuffle!  wth!  


I have both Apple and Spotify, as there are benefits and annoyances between both, and I can't find all the music I want in one or the other.  However, this latest update has made it harder to manage my library and just play my music. It should make the experience easier, not more difficult/annoying.  Please  please fix this.

Hey @vesprlynd77 and welcome to the Community.


Thanks for posting in the Spotify Community.
Hope you're doing great!


Spotify recently pushed an update to the Spotify users which changes the Your Library UI and the way it works. Your saved songs which were in the folder called Songs before now can be found in Favorite Songs playlist, the one with the white heart in a purple background.


Check this Spotify Answer to learn more about the changes to Your Library.


They're always testing and launching improvements and new features. However, if you don't like the new look, please head over to this idea and add your +VOTE. You can always add your own input in the comments there as well 🙂

Hope it helps 🙂

This update is so bad, does not consider what your paying customers were used to using. Instead of of adding another tab where we could still find the music we were used to listening to or had downloaded, you just changed everything.

In the past, Spotify was like a really good record store with a private section that held all the tracks or albums you liked. You could access them by band or album name.

Now that is all gone, can't find anything. 

It's like someone came and robbed my place and took all my music and the insurance company's answer was to tell us just to listen to a radio that had unlimited stations. You'll eventually find something that you like. 

Please can we have another tab on the ui so we can just browse what we chose?
