[Playlists] Make it possible to replace a song in a playlist with another version of it

This kind of thing happens really often - I find a song I like, but its album isn't on Spotify yet, so I have to add it from some 'Best Of' compilation. The thing is, the song's official album gets added to Spotify in the meantime, but if I want to add it from there, I have to delete the song that's already in the playlist, deleting the original 'Date added'. I don't like having to reset these dates, because I often sort playlists by date added, and I like having songs from their official albums instead of some crappy compilations.

So, here's the idea. Just add the option under the three dots next to a song to replace the song with another variation of it. The songs could be recognized as the same if their titles are the same/similar and the artist's names are the same. This could also come in handy if a song is unavailable/greyed out, but another version of it is available.

 

Cheers!

It would be great, I'm having a hard time replacing the songs in my playlists with Taylor's Versions haha

Yes please. Besides what you pointed out, it's a pain to replace songs if your playlist has hundreds of songs because you have to scroll back to find where that song is in your list. Please give us an easier way to fix this.

This would require Spotify actually knowing when two tracks on different releases are the same recording of the same song. Which I am almost certain they don't.

Given Spotify gets confused by two artists that have the same name I have little faith in their ability to pull this off.
