    I've already posted my complaints about a few other playlist topics... but these two things are the ones currently driving me nuts!

    • On iPhone, how do I go to an artist's page from a currently playing song or a song in a playlist?

    • On iPhone, When landing on an artist's page, how do I just play or shuffle play the entire artist?

    Tap the artist view find the artist you want then tap the three dots and tap play next or add to up next.

    Can you elaborate what you mean on the first question?

    Thanks - from what I can tell this only works from artists you already have in your library.

    So, supposing I want to listen to an artist that I just heard while listening to a station, which is what I most often want to do: 1, I can't get to their artist page directly, (I guess I have to run a search) 2, there is no option I can find to play that artist once I'm there.

    It's a three-tap process, but:

    * On the Now Playing screen, tap the 3 dots in the bottom right corner.
    * Tap the track title/artist/album name at the top of the list. This should take you to the album of the song you're listening to.
    * Tap the artist name.

    The very top of the list in that screenshot where it has the album art thumbnail and "Love Like Winter" text above "Start Station". That's tappable.

    Thanks! Did not know that. In my opinion that click should take you to the artist. Almost there. Just need to figure out how to play an artist once I get there!
