Unable to sort songs within playlists despite claims that it works on an iPhone, currently on the latest Spotify software and iOS 12.1.2, see attached pic of my only options, none that I can see will sort!

 

Thanks in advance for any help

Thanks for reaching out to the Community, @mangelope!

 

You can in fact sort playlists on an iPhone in several ways.  These are custom, by title, by artist, and recently added.  To do this, you need to open your playlist and scroll up so that a search bar appears with three horizontal lines to the right of it.  Click on the three lines, then select which way you want your playlist to be sorted.  I have included a screen recording that shows how to do this.

 

In the screenshot that you have shared, what you were doing was clicking the three dots in the top right corner of the screen.  You cannot sort a playlist this way.

 

I hope this helps!

Spotify.com help says "3 dots" and Spotify community monitor Katerina too:

Hope they fix that and I'd still be pulling out my hair if it weren't for you, you rock, thank you!
