Hey there @robo042

 

Thanks for reaching out to the Community about this. 
 

A feature allowing you to see when a playlist was created or updated is currently not available. However, we really appreciate you’re taking the time to share your suggestion with the Community. If you think other users might also like it, go ahead and create an idea on the relevant idea board. We always take new ideas and feedback into consideration to improve the app. Here you can read more on how ideas work.


We also suggest checking this help article for useful tips on how to submit an idea. As a heads-up, it's good to know that the higher the number of votes an idea gets, the more likely it is for the idea to be implemented 🙂

 

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

This is an awful loss. I have a number of playlists I follow and like to see when they are updated with new songs. Knowing the date when a playlist has been updated is crucial to discovering new songs. Please bring this feature back. Why was it removed in the first place?

Why was this previously existing feature deprecated?

The feature to see the date that a playlist was created / updated has existed on the mobile app for years and apparently the developers took it away in a recent update. This is an essential feature, and should be brought back. Of course "other users might also like it". 

That's like taking away the odometer in a car, and then telling people "If you want the odometer feature back, please request that update in future car models". It's an essential feature, not a nice-to-have, or anything new.

Update for solution:

Delete app and reinstall and the dates on playlists come back. Sorry for jumping to conclusions. Hopefully the dates will stick around

Nevermind... dates disappeared again. Spotify should fix this. Really annoying

Lately it appears as Spotify is doing its best to find useful and essential features that users need and then remove it without any reason other than irritating their users.. it's time to cancel my subscription

What a silly idea to remove this feature.

But it’s not a request for a new feature. It’san inquiry into why an obviously useful and simple feature that has existed for years has been removed.
