No more warning preventing duplicate songs in playlists?

Relevant for Spotify computer client - adding multiple songs to playlist with potential duplicates no longer triggers warning message “this song already is in this playlist, add anyways?”

 

this was a critical feature that helped keep playlists organized and avoid duplicates. For instance if you want to archive your “release radar” playlists, you can’t do that now without having loads of duplicate songs as the old warning message would “auto filter” duplicate entries out of the new songs, keeping everything neat and orderly. 

Strangely, the warning will pop up when adding single songs, but not “en masse”. Why!? No observable way to toggle this in settings either - I NEVER selected the “do not remind me again” option when this message has pppped up in the past - to put it simply, I RELY on it and would hate to see it needlessly be bypassed. 

MacBook Pro 2015 and iMac Pro 2017 - Catalina, last update before Big Sur.

Hey there @SwishTurner,

 

Thank you for your post here in the Community.

 

Can you let us know the full number of your Spotify version so we can investigate this further?

 

We'll keep an eye out for your reply.

 

Cheers!

I have the same issue. It started after the last update of Spotify.

Windows 10 Pro

 

PS: It still works fine on my Android phone.

Hey @Jeremy
I'm experiencing the same troubles. It appears to be a side effect of the new desktop client update that was released.
My full version info: 1.1.46.916.g416cacf1-a

Hey folks,

 

Thanks for reaching out. 

 

The reason you're not seeing a duplicate warning for song you add, is that our developers are trying out a New Desktop client. You can head over to this thread to learn more and leave your feedback with what you like and what can be improved. The warning should still come up when you add a song via the mobile app

 

Hope this shines a bit of light on the matter. We'll be here if you have any other questions.
