[iOS][Playlists] Bring back the “sort by Artist” filter in the playlist section

Im sure many can agree with me that there isn’t a need to fix what isn’t broken. I’ve pretty much sorted my playlist this way for as long as I knew and I’m completely content with it, I don’t really understand the decision to completely remove it and have a different filter replace it. For the record, I’m fine with adding new filters but it’d definitely be nice if I could keep the previous filter I was using. Thanks in advance for taking the time to read this

Hey there @crims0n,

 

Thanks for reaching out to us.

 

The option to sort by artist should still be available on the app. You can take a look here to see how to activate it.

 

If you have our test version for the desktop app you can still arrange by artist - you just need to click 3 times on the Title column.

 

If you have trouble with any of that, we'll need to know what device you're using and your Spotify version.

 

A screenshot of what you see in the sorting option will also help us investigate.

 

We'll be on the lookout for your reply.

Hello, thank you for replying and apologies for the extremely late response from me, but the option is unfortunately still unavailable for me. There’s only the “sort by name” option (as seen in attached screenshot), maybe this is just a mobile only problem so I suppose  it’s just something i have to come to terms with i guess.

Hey @crims0n,

 

Thanks for getting back to us 🙂

 

Could you try opening a playlist? Then you can try sorting by Artist.

 

Currently there is no option to sort by Artist the list with playlists.

 

Let us know how it goes. If you have questions, you know where to find us.
