Add to queue - Top of list


Hi,

How do I make the “Add to queue” button add songs to the top of the queue instead of the bottom of the queue? I tend to play songs off their album pages and when adding to queue I intend for the song to come next, not after the remaining album tracks.

“Listen next” does the reverse of what I’m looking to do as it adds songs in a Newest > Oldest queue order.

Thanks.

Hey @dandj 

I understand you like this: You want to play an album next from an artist's discography. Right?
Do you use an iPhone? Because there has been a bug for ages that "Listen next" is identical to "Add to queue" - in the discography view. 😐

Hi,

No, I want to make the “Add to queue” button add songs to the top of the queue instead of the bottom of the queue.

Maybe I don't understand you correctly. But what you're looking for is "play next".

Good evening,

Maybe I could have explained it more clearly. The function you’ve mentioned almost does exactly what I would like to achieve with my queue list, but it does it in the wrong way around as it adds songs in a Last added > First added order/priority rather than a First added > Last added order. I want to add songs to the top of the queue instead of the bottom of the queue like the Play next/Listen next button does, but with the first song I’ve queued beginning to play immediately after the song currently playing, and then whatever songs that were queued after that, in chronological order.

See this screen recording for a demonstration of the queueing as I experience it. I am listening to a song in an album, then add songs to my queue with the Listen next button from a Tracks search result page. Notice how the songs are not added in the desired order, but instead whatever song I’ve queued most recently is assigned to the top of the list and plays next.

Any ideas?

Currently it only works to put something at the end of the queue or at the beginning, which is played after the currently playing song. Unfortunately, there is no other way without manual reworking.
The linked video brings a 404 error.

Hey @dandj 

Now I understand your wish. Sorry, it took a little longer.
You mean play next 1 shouldn't be played after play next 2, right?
I've done it graphically.

 

This means you want the song sorting from "Add to queue" within the "Play next" function. I'll link to @Yula here, maybe the developers are already working on something like this. 😀
