Adding one song to the Library adds the whole album !

Since a recent update, adding a song from an album automatically saves the entire album. This makes navigating in the Library a nightmare. There is no distinction between track saved and other tracks.

 

For example, if I save one or two songs from a 30 songs compilation, all 30 songs will appear indistinctly in the Album page in my Library. This is terrible and I don’t see how this can be an improvment. We used to have the choice between saving a whole album or saving songs one by one. This doesn’t make the app simpler, just less user friendly and for people like me having a huge library, it is really a huge inconvenience. I hope things will go back to normal soon.

Thanks for reaching out to the Community!

 

Even with the recent update, you are still able to add just one song from an album to your Library on both your computer and the mobile app.  If you click the heart in the top right corner of the album page, or click the three dots in the top right corner and then "Add to playlist," the entire album will be saved to your Library or added to your playlist.  Instead, make sure to click the three dots directly to the right of the name of the song that you would like to save.  From there, you can either save the song to your Library or add it to a playlist.

 

I hope this helps!

Sorry but it’s not working. Clicking the heart for a song (by going in the three dots menu at the right of the name of the song) saves the whole album to the Library... To be precise, the songs are not all individually added, but this doesn’t change the result since all the songs of the album appears indistinctly wheather you added them or not. The problem is that you can’t find the song you’ve added since they are in the middle of all the other songs of an album (which is a nightmare with a complilation with a large number of songs for example).

This doesn't work. I'm here for the exact same reason. I press the heart on one song and the whole album appears in my library - I unlike the album in the library and it gets removed along with the song I do like. Annoying and frustrating.

I’m experiencing the same issue. Liking one song from an album, adds the entire album to the library. This has completely ruined my Spotify experience that I have been enjoying for years..

Hey @EvDaGreat@dridri1 and @5m97z8-dg_s0c,

 

Thanks for posting about this here :)

 

Could you let us know if this is still an issue for you?

 

If so, make sure to provide us with the following info:

  • exact Spotify version
  • OS version and device

Once we have that, we'll look into it.

 

Thanks! We'll be looking out for your replies ;)

Hey @dridri1.

 

Thanks for getting back to us with that info.

 

We tried reproducing this on our end on a device with the same specs, but everything seems to be working normally.

 

In order to narrow down the issue, could you let us know if this is happening with a specific album or kind of album (e.g. albums vs EPs/singles)? If you could provide us with a screen recording, that would be really helpful to help us understand the issue.

 

Looking forward to hearing back from you!

It happens with all songs/albums. Every time I add just a single song, the whole album appears in my Library. Here is a screen recording of the issue :
