    Hi there,
    i must be missing something....

    I'm keeping on adding Apple Music curated playlists...and for the life of me i can't find a way on the desktop app to create Folders in where to stack them. I can hide them all, or i can create playlists by myself which then i can add, but i cant group and fold Apple Music made playlist....is this normal????

    Thanks,

    Vanni

    Yep, you are right. Also just noticed this. On the desktop, it's not such a huge issue for me, because at least the Apple playlists have their own section in the playlists tab. But on iOS, they are just smushed in with the rest of the playlists. Annoying.

    I guess the only workaround is to create your own playlist and to then pull all songs from the Apple playlist into that one. You then have full control over your own playlist, and you can move it to folders or modify it, etc. Then just get rid of the Apple playlist.

    I know this discussion is a couple of months old, but I'm really struggling with the number of Apple Music playlists I have accumulated over time... I've already sent Feedback to Apple and practically begged for playlist folders for AM playlists, but I feel like it might be a while until we get that feature (if it's even planned at all).

    I'd love to know if there are other workarounds than the one mentioned - I don't want to create playlists for every AM playlist and drag the tracks over, because doing that adds all those tracks to my library (and I prefer to keep my main collection relatively uncluttered).
    Is there really no way to somehow organize AM playlists without adding the tracks to my library? Maybe I'm just missing something obvious...
