I'm running the same version. I just created a playlist and added some tracks to it...

From the home screen, tap on Playlists, tap on "+", create the playlist.

yes, but go to a folder press it and see what happens... no create playlist and no add to playlist... creating a playlist of several albums/folders track by track it's no way to go... the previous version worked like a charm... I have already downgraded... to version 1.2.30... :D

I rolled back too. Highlighting a folder and having the ability to make playlist with that folders name makes so much more sense. The ability to add one file to the last active playlist is gone in the new version also. They made it a two step process where the old one will have it show up in the choices of a long press on a file.

I wonder what they mean by 'Improved playlist manipulation features' in version 1.3...

MOD edit: This post was merged from another topic so it will not flow with the rest of the discussion.

I'm using Android 12 - May 5, 2022 security update and Foobar2000 ver. 1.3

I know for sure that in the past I was able to select a directory from "Music on Internal Storage", to create a new playlist that automatically add all the tracks included in that directory. The name of the directory was used for the name the playlist. I have a bunch of files that are not tagged or that are wrongly tagged and instead, I use folder structure to catalog them. If I add a new track to a directory I simply deleted the playlist and recreate it by selecting the directory. Now that option is gone. When I select and hold the directory the only options listed are Delete and Rename. If I select a TAG category (composer for example), and I click and hold I can see the "Add to playlist" option and that's the same option that I have listed when selecting a directory.

Am I doing something wrong? Can you validate what I'm saying? What's going on? If it is that the option got removed, Why?

Ufff I has just posted a thread for this same issue. How do I delete that post and how do I roll back?

To delete the post I don't know. To roll back you have to uninstall v 1.3, download the previous version (1.2.30) from the foobar website and run the apk in your android thingy (you'll lose all your playlists and settings) hope this helps

Yikes!!! I just finished doing the rollback and got you message too late and yes I lost all my playlists  >:(   :o   :(   :'(

What a mess I can't get the icon in the home screen of the launcher. It is listed in settings apps, I can open it, is working but for some reason my pixel phone don't want to show the icon of sideloaded apps.

Finally, Rollback to 1.2.30 and was able to add the icon to the home screen. But I lost all my playlist! If any developer is reading this, please put an option to save the playlists to a file.
