Spotify today announces a nice feature that is going to make life a lot easier for people who have gathered a pretty impressive collection of songs on their Liked playlist and couldn’t separate them into separate playlists for reasons only they knew. In my case, I was just too lazy to do it. The company adds New mood and genre filters that allow users to sort their favorite songs by mood, mood and genre.
There are a total of 15 filters to choose from if your Liked playlist contains 30 or more songs
If your Liked playlist happens to be a potpourri of songs from different genres and suits a wide variety of moods, these filters make it easier for users to find songs of a certain type. So if you feel like listening to electronic music, just tap the pill-shaped electronic button at the top. Spotify will show you all the songs from this genre that are currently in your Liked playlist.
All Users who have at least 30 songs in their Liked playlist can access these mood and genre filters. And in case you’re wondering, there are a total of 15 filters to choose from. According to Spotify, these filters will be showing up for both free and premium users on Android and iOS in the coming weeks.
The Mood and Genre filters are available to both free and premium users
However, These filters for your Liked playlist are mostly available in English-speaking countries These include the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, Ireland, South Africa, and New Zealand. According to Spotify, adding new tracks to your Liked playlist doesn’t affect how these filters work, as they will continue to categorize each new addition the way it’s supposed to.
Interested already? Here’s how you can use the new mood and genre filters on your Liked playlist in Spotify’s own words:
|1. Go to “Your Library” and tap “Liked Songs”.
2. Then tap on one of the filters at the top of the playlist header to display all tracks that fall under that mood or genre.
3. When you’re ready to switch to a different mood or genre, simply tap the “X” next to the genre or mood to turn the filter off and return to your full collection of Liked Songs.
