While you're working on improving the library interface, could we get some more love for genres? Would be awesome to be able to sort by genre or even see the genre in the album information section!

I registered with the community specifically to post something similar.  The app is now almost as annoying as the Desktop player for this.  

Please bring this back as an option.  It's much more valuable than having a homepage full of podcast recommendations that I have absolutely no intention of ever listening to.   Additionally if you are going to generate recommendations, please bring back the dislike button or someway of downvoting.  Every other platform I use gives this option and it seems like a massive miss

Good news!

 

Spotify has just announced new genre and mood filters for the "Liked Songs" playlist.

 

Check out this news article, as well as this Community Blog post, about the new feature.

Completely in agreement. The new format is incomprehensible. There’s no streamlined way to see newly released podcast episodes, and therefore the functionality**bleep**.

Sorry to hear about this.

 

You can check out this help article on feature testing:

 

https://support.spotify.com/article/why-am-i-seeing-different-features-than-my-friends/

 

Most of the Spotify tests are random so the developers can see which features are liked and which aren't and not all of them are announced.

 

The information posted in this thread was for the iOS test that started in the fall of 2020. It looks like you are part of a new Android test, so things could look different such as no feedback button and no option to switch back to the classic Your Library.

 

I apologize for any inconvenience. Hopefully there will be more info about this test for Android available in the future.

Yes, and it ignored the rest of the world making it possible only for regions where English is a primary language.

Why not make it visible looking at the app language?? 😠

Sorry for the confusion. My post has been updated with the latest info. This test is now rolling out to select Android users as well and is no longer just iOS. There will be more improvements to the test over time so keep a look out.

I was randomly selected for this test group, and I HATE the new library. Its more difficult to find things if you have a lot of playlists, albums, artists, etc. Also, I hate that theres no custom sort. I had my playlists in a specific order and now they are all jumbled. I don't care about the new library I just want to be able to have custom order again.

Like @nathanjl and @Guinaroberts, my Android just received this test and I hate hate hate several aspects of it.

 

On the Music side, I can't stand not being able to see my custom playlist order.

 

More importantly, on the podcast side, not being able to access a full list of my downloaded episodes -- or sort them in the order in which I downloaded them -- is unacceptable.

 

PLEASE fix these terrible updates, allow for a return to the classic view, and allow users to opt out of future beta testing or at very least get a heads up when one is coming and what to expect.

Thank you! Sorting by “Recently Added” shows me podcasts in order I of when I hit the “follow” button, how is that useful? There is no way to recreate a view that will put newer episodes or more recently updated podcasts at the top of my view and I’ve started missing episode releases because I have to go hunting for the most recent “updated on _____” date.
