Sort order recently added

Sort order recently added



My playlist does not sort in the right order when choosing recently added.

The default sort order (ascending) should simply be reversed to descending when choosing recently added but on several devices this does not work.


This is using ios version 8.3.0 and android with playlist

Hey @kokkiloras


The way "recently added" works is that it takes into acount the time you added the songs to the playlist and shows the newest added to the oldest added. It does not flip the order of what's shown on "custom" sort.


You can see when each song was added in the date column when using the desktop app.

Yes I am aware of how the recently added is supposed to work. The issue is that the order isn't correct in mobile devices. The desktop version shows the correct order.
