iOS App - Order of playlist

Flex8

Hi guys

 

why is it no longer possible to sort/manage the order of a playlist in the iOS App?

 

and it’s even no longer syncing the order of a playlist once it is changed on a Mac.  It’s only ordering songs by date. Old>new. 

 

I have a lot of very long playlists (300 songs) and don’t want scroll all the time on an iPhone....

 

Anyone any idea how to fix this?

 

help really appreciated ☺️

Thx

flex

 

btw. What happens to “radio” why is just a “fixed” playlist? 😕🙈 Spotify you are acting like you have been acquired by Microsoft already....

Hey @Flex8.

 

Thanks for reaching out to us about this!

 

To sort playlists on iOS, you have to scroll up until the 'filter' bar appears. To the right of it you'll see a hamburger menu which will show you the options for sorting the playlist.

 

As for Spotify Radio, we recently made some changes to the way it works. You can read more about this here.

 

Hope that clears things up! Let us know if there's anything else 😉

The fillers do not work at all for me. I cant change the sorting at all! This is why I’m thinking Apple music is better for my family. Nothing ever seems to work quite right.

If you scroll to the top of a playlist in the iOS app, you will see a filter option
