Spotify playlists no longer in order

Hello. At some point this morning some kind of update has changed the way my Spotify playlists display within the Sonos app. I arrange my Spotify playlists in alphabetical using the Custom Order function, so they can reflect a large CD collection. Sonos used to mirror that, but now seems to be displaying them - I think - in the order they were last played, which is useless to me and makes the list unnavigable. Could this bug be fixed asap or a workaround suggested? I prefer to just control everything through the Sonos app rather than the Spotify app. Thank you

Sonos never sort third party content, such as playlists. If you want that sorted, you need to ask Spotify. It sounds like they have a sort function, but they are not taking that into account when delivering the playlist to Sonos.

I too was annoyed this has been changed and hoping for a better answer. But I fear we need to look at Spotify for this.

See also this request to return the folders from Spotify in their API, which I’m sure also influences order
