Reverse sort playlist

large playlist takes long time to scroll down to recently added (and most likely to be played). Wish to have a feature where you can flip the order of the playlists to start woth recently added at top instead of bottom.

Hey @sn3328, welcome to the Community.

Hope you're doing great!

 

Your wish got granted! Just swipe down when you're inside that playlist and a search filter with a menu next to it will appear. Tap the menu and select Recently added, then your playlist will literally be upside down with the recently added songs on the top. No need for scrolling anymore to the bottom.


Hope it helps 🙂

thanks so much. This is excellent

this doesn't reverse playlist order, it sorts the playlist by date added

And I for one would like to keep my playlist sorted by date added, with oldest at top ... sort options are good,  but where's the reverse order button? 🙂

Jeremy

Hi there @Chaustemplea,

 

Thank you for reaching out to the Community.

 

You should be able to click on the arrow right next to date added to reverse the order.

 

If you don't see it, can you click on full screen?

If that doesn't do the trick, can you provide us a screenshot so that we can have a closer look directly from your end?

We'll keep an eye out for your reply.

 

Cheers!

This actually worked, and like grstk says it doesn't reverse the playlist order, rather reverses by date added.   This is actually what I needed for my Starred playlist as it has been getting rather long.   It actually keeps the album song ordering too.

 

I had to stop using playlists in the iOS version because scrolling through a playlist takes forever now that it presents a million replicated copies of the same album covers over and over.   With this solution it has become sort of bareable, unless you want to browse through a playlist, not just look at the start or end of it.    Still classic UI on desktop is the gold standard for how it should be done from a usability perspective.

Hi there @ManMachine,

 

Thank you for your reply and confirmation.


We're really glad that everything works as it should for you 🙂

The best way to provide your feedback regarding the new desktop version would be in this thread.

 

Let us know if we can help you with anything else.

 

Cheers!

Yes well, except for getting somewhere else that the start or end of the playlist but I guess that wasn't the question asked here.

But how can you reverse the "custom order"? Reversing by date added does not allow you to modify the order of songs. There has to be another way? Spotify has existed for how many years?

Alex

Hey there @Wonderboy75,


Thanks for the post.

 

You can't reverse the Custom Order, since that's a manual order in which you can drag songs around as you like, allowing you to re-arrange the playlists in whatever way you like. The other sorting options automatically sort the songs by a criteria like Date Added/ Artist/ Album etc.

 

Hope this clears things up.
