My Question or Issue

 I’ve had this app for maybe 2 years now and I have never been able to rearrange my songs in a playlist. When I look up a solution it says to click the three dots on the top right, hit edit, then drag with the three dots next to the song. I do not see it next to any songs on my playlist. I really want to move my songs.

Hey @mrogowski62, welcome to the Community.
Hope you're doing great!

 

I can’t change the order of my playlists that are using a sorting filter.

In other playlists it works just fine.

 

If you would like this behavior changed I’d suggest starting a new thread in the Community Ideas Exchange.

This’ll allow users, Stars, and Moderators to vote and comment on it.


Have a great day! :)

The Spotify iOS app allows re-organizing song order within personal playlists, but the steps changed.

Here's how to do it within iOS app version 8.4.95.

1. Open the playlist that you want to re-organize the song order.
2. Drag down the window so 3 dots appear in the upper right, and pull down a second time so the "search" window now appears.
3. Touch the 3 bars that appear to the right of the "search" window.
4. Touch "custom", which returns you to the playlist window.
5. Touch the 3 dots (upper right) and select "Edit".
6. Touch and hold the 3 bars the right of the song you wish to move within the playlist.
7. Drag the song to the new location and release it.
8. Touch "done" in the upper right.  That's it!
