Are you on the free plan or the premium plan?

 

According to this support article, this feature is now a premium only feature. Free users can still rearrange the song order in playlists using the desktop app.

Edit a playlist

Tap on the playlist, then Edit playlist:

  • Remove songs or podcast episodes with 
     
    .
  • To reorder songs or podcast episodes, tap, hold, and drag 
     
     (Premium only).

 

If you are a premium user and you can't rearrange songs in a playlist it could be because you have changed the sort order of the playlist.

 

The order needs to be set to "custom order" to be able to change the song order when editing the playlist.
