Spotify Starred Playlist Order Reversed

Out of nowhere my Spotify Starred Playlist order reversed. This issue started happening a few weeks ago and it was really confusing. The Spotify desktop version that I use every day at work was not affected. I would play songs off of my starred playlist and they were in the correct order. When I say correct I just mean that they were ordered so that the most recent song added to the playlist was at the top. When I went on my devices though (iPad / iPhone) the order was pretty random. My songs were still there but I couldn’t find my most recent additions.

I finally found a way to fix this sorting issue. If you go into the playlist and sort all the way to the top past the album art you should see a filter search bar and an icon to the right of it. This icon will let you change the sort order and for whatever reason it was on custom so I just moved it back to Recently Added. Not sure why this happened but I hope this helps you out.

Hi, I’m Dan Vega. I am a Software Engineer living just outside of one of my favorite places in the world, Cleveland, Ohio. I am a self-taught programmer who firmly believes that you can accomplish anything in this life if you put your mind to it, roll up your sleeves and are willing to put in the work.

I have been writing software for over 18+ years now and I use my knowledge, passion, and influence to help other developers achieve their goals. I teach online and currently, have over 30,000 students.

When I am not writing software, I have a number of things that really keep me busy. I love to read books, listen to podcasts and watch online courses. I have a real thirst for knowledge and it consumes me every single day of the week. I also love to run & lift heavy weights which keep me balanced throughout the week.

  • Thank you! Shame they changed the behaviour like this. I have 1000s of songs on Starred so reversing the order took me ages to play my most recently starred songs.

    • You’re welcome. Glad I could help out.
