My Question or Issue

Recently, Spotify removed the tick icon and introduced the heart icon instead for all iOS versions. Since that version, it is not possible anymore to remove single tracks (e.g. those I do not like) from a saved album. How do I achieve that now??

 

There is still an option to save a certain track by using the “...“ symbol, but then again the whole album is saved. 

 

It is a total mess. I do not understand that concept at all. Impossible to use Spotify at the moment. Please help!! 😩

Hey @katzekahn, thanks for writing!

 

Maybe you're confusing how the Albums collection works.

 

Saved songs will now appear in a playlist called Liked Songs. From now on, saving an album won’t automatically save the songs within that album, so the user will need to save/heart the individual songs they want to keep. 

 

As for what happens when saving an album:

  • The hearted album will appear in Albums.
  • The tracks will not appear in your Liked Songs collection.
  • The album can still be downloaded for offline listening.

If you only want to listen to specific songs from albums, all you have to do is heart/like the individual songs, then head to Liked Songs to listen to them.

 

Let me know if you have any other questions :)

Thanks for clarification. What do you mean with playlist Liked Songs? I don’t see any playlist like that. The only thing I know is the Songs folder. But there I cannot pick all liked songs of a certain album to be played.

Hey @katzekahn,

 

In your mobile app, go to Your Library, and you should see the Liked Songs playlist at the top and all the other ones under it.

 

What's your app version?

I am running v8.0.5.833 in German. 

 

That’s what I see in Library:

 

  • Für dich erstellt (created for you)
  • Playlists
  • Sender
  • Songs
  • Alben
  • ...

but isn’t there some way to go back to how it used to be? This new update sucks with that, I don’t want to have the chance of something else starting to play once I’m done with the certain songs of a certain album that I wanted to play. Plus I don’t want to see a whole album just looking for one song through the album section

I'm sorry but that is a very inconvenient change. It's far easier to search for a specific song by looking for the album cover and the song within that album that you saved. I can scroll through albums super easily and find the song that I'm looking for without going through ALL my songs.

Not only is it super inconvenient but it also removes features. I've used spotify mobile like this since I got the app. I've been using spotify for a couple of years now so at this point it's very ingrained in me to use albums. The old method of saving just the songs you like from an album is still the same on desktop spotify so why change it?

This is a super frustrating change and I really hope it gets changed back, because to the best of my knowledge apple music doesn't have this problem. I'd rather just switch over to their streaming service rather than have to relearn an app I've been using for years that made needless changes. Changes that don't even follow over to the desktop spotify application.

@Mauriarti: You speak from my heart. It‘s 100% the same to me. I am using Spotify since years but now it became not only super frustrating but actually impossible to use.

Hey @katzekahn,

 

Could you please take a screenshot of your library?

 

Also,  can you double check the app version you're using? 

 

Regarding the new update, you can comment and vote on this idea. If it gets enough votes it might be implemented!
