Question

Won't let me add to existing playlist?


When I click add to a playlist, it just asks what I should call my new playlist and also gives suggestions but there's not option to add the song to and existing playlist.

I'm using google chrome and I'm pretty sure it's updated.

Any help?

This is still a problem, soundcloud please fix this already!!

Hey Nightless,

The root cause to the original issue was fixed, however it looks like there's a new bug that has brought back the issue. Many of our users report back that once Adblock is disabled / adjusted, the option comes back, so I'd recommend you try that first. We've reported this being an issue again to our engineers, however have yet to hear back as to when and how this can be addressed unfortunately.

This is still happening. For a minute it wasn't happening, when i created a second playlist, but then it reverted to not working.
This is still a problem. It's happening to me today. Most, but not all of the time.
I upgraded so I could put full songs in my playlist but this bug is making that incredibly difficult to the point I'm thinking about ending my subscription. its not a small issue its the main reason I upgraded.
There is not actually solved after 2 YEARS!!!! Rlly????
Still happening. This is REALLY annoying.
We're experiencing the same sh*t. I guess, we could just revert back to Bandcamp. Honestly, Bandcamp is looking better and better everyday.
As a Software Engineer it pains me to see that this problem still exists. I never once used the Playlist feature on Soundcloud until today. Now that I finally want to use it I find out that a bug preventing a simple, extremely valuable user interaction is still not fixed after two years. I thought I just didn't know how to use your site or your app but its just that you just don't know what your customers want. Please address this problem. Its obvious everyone wants it fixed... :@

Honestly, this is a f*king disgrace that I just had this issue and it goes back over 2 years. That's insane.
🆒🆒 Nice

STILL having this issue. I will try creating a second playlist but then i will have to call it "fake playlist" and go back and add the track to my first playlist. It's just that this is such a basic function, especially to connect people to others' songs. Why wouldn't you fix this before doing almost anything else, two years later???????
Happening for me too.
Searching google for the problem returns results dating from from 2015 until today.
How can an issue with such a small but important feature be unresolved for this long?
This issue isn't solved at all. Incredibly frustrating. :@
I found a way, just edit your title. It worked for me.

I don't get it, why is this bug not fixed yet after 2 years? I have the same issue 😕
It started working for me after I made a second playlist, since I only had one.
Have same problem (Chrome/MAC). There's no add to existing playlist, only create new one. I assume there will be a tab with the two. Tried what user said by creating two playlists but the option is still not available.
still having this issue... sad that this hasn't been fixed yet.
The same problem. It's a bug for sure. I'm sure the fix will take very short time. Why aren't you fixing it?
It has high priority as lots of users see the issue, and it doesn't have any easy workaround.
I've tried this, it doesn't fix the problem for me.
Problem is still actual. To fix: add second playlist, wait some time, ..., profit!
This is still happening. A whole two years later, this bullshit still happens.

For everyone still having this problem, if you only have one playlist create another and try again, once you have two or more it will allow you to freely add to an existing playlist, nasty bug.

I have three playlists. Only one of them is public. Still, this shit should not be happening two years later. Major bug. And why isn't Soundcloud open-source so that we as users could help them fix this?

This is driving me mad. It won't give me the option of adding a second track to a playlist anywhere. Nothing works. I tried it with Chrome and Safari but the same problem. Absolutely crazy.
