Spotify still doesn’t let you edit playlists on Android or the web

Regardless of whether you think your playlist-curation aptitudes can beat Spotify’s numerical enchantment, or you simply need your melodies in the ideal request for your gathering or exercise, having the capacity to make your playlists simply the way you need them is critical to any music benefit. Spotify’s focus on playlists makes them doubly imperative, so why are playlists still tottered on Android and web?

In the event that you need to make another playlist on Android, it’s genuinely direct. You can either influence another playlist from the Playlists to area of Your Library or you can make one when you attempt to include the principal tune. You can name your playlist and you can include or evacuate melodies, however in the event that you need to move tunes up or down the rundown, you’ll need to expel each tune between when the tune was added to the playlist and where you need it to go. On the web, you have the additional restriction of not having the capacity to try and rename a playlist.

Considering the default play mode suggested on every album, station, and playlist is Shuffle Play, this may not mean too much to the casual user, but it is indicative of Spotify’s attitude towards its Android app — and its Android users. The Spotify iOS app has always had it, Android users have been begging for it for four years and Spotify has said it’s still not coming anytime soon. Forget about getting the latest and greatest features, Spotify won’t even give Android users basic, legacy utilities.

If you’re committed to Spotify with a robust library and years of listening history to base your listening suggestions on, then this probably seems like much ado about nothing. Shuffle Play is good enough for most users, after all. But if you’re picky about your playlists, consider that re-ordering playlists on Google Play Music, Apple Music and just about every other music service on the market today is as easy as dragging and dropping.
