Spotify update lets you add whole albums to your playlists
Spotify has today rolled out a nice new update to its Android app today, finally giving users the ability to add whole albums to existing playlists. The release also introduces a confirmation dialogue that prevents you from adding tracks to playlists twice accidentally, and fixes an issue that caused the app to crash on devices with ARMv5 processors.
Until now, if you wanted to add an entire album to an existing playlist, you had to add every single track one-by-one. It was a long and tedious process — particularly on a smartphone or tablet — but you couldn’t add Justin Beiber’s latest album to your “Best Music Ever” playlist any other way.
Now you can tap the overflow button in the top right corner when viewing an album, then select “Add To…” to put all of the tracks into one of your existing playlists.
In addition, when adding tracks to playlists, Spotify will now ask you to confirm your actions if a certain song is being added twice. The update also fixes an issue that caused the app to crash on devices with ARMv5 processors.
