More Sorting Options for Playlists

Does anyone else find it beyond frustrating that you cannot sort a vurated playlist?  I pay for Premium Pandora and cannot even sort a playlist?

 

And why isn't there a mechanism to identify and delete duplicates from a playlist.

 

What is wrong with Pandora....?  They really need to up their game.

Totally agree.  There's so much to love about Pandora, but the lack of ability to sort within playlists is a major shortcoming.

I just left a message about that as well. You would think since you can sort A-Z on Pandora plus you would be able to do it on Premium, but you can’t and it’s very frustrating!

It is beyond frustrating.  I pay a good price for Premium, and you would think they would provide this simple feature.  I suspect that it is because they don't want to make it easy, so you are forced to listen to songs you would rather not.

I agree totally. Why not? One more thing.....  If I find an artist I like, why can't I add a similar song / artist? I came from another service because I listen to Pandora on my TV's. And one more,  Why isn't there a FADE between songs to eliminate dead space. I give up!

@Stevemtx Nice to see you around the community.

Adding similar songs to an existing playlist:

There is a feature that allows you to easily add similar tracks to an existing playlist.

Add similar songs to a playlist on a mobile device:

Go to My Collection and tap the name of the playlist you'd like to add similar trakcs to. Next, tap the Edit icon below the album art.

  • Tap the Add Similar Songs button located at the bottom of your playlist if you need some assistance with building your playlist. Pandora will add songs that match the musical qualities of the tracks already in your playlist. You can re-order songs we've added or delete any unwanted songs.

Add similar songs to a playlist on a computer:

Go to My Collection and tap the name of the playlist you'd like to make changes to.

  • Tap the Add Similar Songs button located at the bottom of your playlist if you need some assistance with building your playlist. Pandora will add songs that match the musical qualities of the tracks already in your playlist. You can re-order songs we've added or delete any unwanted songs.

Crossfade option:

I'm beginning to think Premium just isn't worth it with the lack of these features.  Can you say Spotify?

I agree 100%.  This functionality seems to be basic stuff especially for Premium users!  Step it up Pandora.

Thanks for sharing your feedback, @kgshu.

I completely understand where you're coming from.

In the meantime, we do have an existing feature request for this option that @AdamPandora mentioned above. I'm sure other listeners would also be interested in seeing this implemented. Be sure to give any ideas an upvote by clicking on the ❤️icon next to the title of the feature request.

Hope to see you around the community more often! 🎧

The only way I have been able to find is to drag and drop. I'm sure this is only going to work on certain devices, but it is better than nothing. I am able to click on a song, drag it up or down, and release. Hey, I would love for a filter menu to give me better options, but for now, it at least keeps me from scrolling through 80 plus songs to see if I have already saved it. Happy Tuesday All!

I’d like to be able to order my playlists and not have them move when I add a new song. Feel like this would be good to be able to order playlists by most listened to not so much.

6 months since this "feature request" was mentioned. How we doing on that Pandora? How can I not even sort my playlist by date added. Definitely about to go look into spotify.

I'm considering going over to Spotify just for that reason.

It's crazy that this requires a bunch of people to give a thumbs up to before being addresses.  Pandora must have some very cumbersome code to not be able to make this an option.

I noticed I had a more logical sort and navigation in Pandora as a non-paying customer. Across all devices, phone, ipod, etc. the features are no longer navigable - the thumbs up/down feature isn't present, the collection view is skewed to limit me to 'only' artists 'or' songs 'or' albums 'or' stations -- but not view my 'collection' in a logical sorted format as it has been my entire history as a Pandora client. Radio stations are in numberical order on a radio. Television stations are in numerical order. Why would it ever by reasonable to consider that Pandora collections that  allegedly offer a 'filter' wouldn't provide an 'alphabetized sort' that keeps the entire collection intact??? Sensible, logical, navigable, intelligent design isn't rocket science for a music service. C'mon, Pandora. Stop running off your clients to Spotify and Amazon.

It is 2021 and the Pandora crew still don't care that sorting filter is a feature their clients want and need. Still relegated to filter only part of their 'collection' by listing only by 'artist/album/song/station' and even then, it won't filter alphabetically.  bullocks. it was fine until I became a paying customer - but now I'm heading to spotify.
