Roon 1.8 - where can I see tags & playlists for a track? [Solved]

Awesome - Thanks!!

Thank you very much.

The tracks in my playlists are no longer numbered, which I’m not happy about. Even more irritating is that previously when adding tracks to playlists, the playlist was listed under the relevant track making it possible to see how many playlists the track had been added to. I make a lot of playlists and want to avoid duplication. I now need to check the actual playlist to see whether a track has already been added or not. Playlists are a really important function so this needs to be rectified.

Good job! Thanks!

I like using tags inside of Roon and enjoyed that whenever I looked at an album, if a song was part of any of my tags, it would display that tag name under the song. It appears Roon 1.8 doesn’t do this?

Is there a way to turn that back on somewhere?

Hello @Stephan_Pearce,

We’ve restored the ability to see track tags and playlists in the latest Roon update:

Why did you remove it in the first place?

Playlist Links

“This is another request we’ve heard from many of you – if you’d like to see links on the album screen to the playlists you’ve created, this can also be enabled from the General tab of Settings.”

I don’t see a way to enable playlist links on the general tab of settings. What am I misssing?

Maybe when the app updates this will appear in settings?

Yes, you need to be running the latest version.

Can someone explain this to me? I enable it but I don’t see anything.

Update the app

Thanks for the update, it’s a relief. Now, I can really enjoy 1.8.

Thanks for also bringing back the separation between all tags and the most recently used ones on the “Manage tags” overlay.

Got the new IOS app update (along with core update earlier) last night and got the playlist links back. Thank you Roon! Great response following a major update.

Thank You! for bringing it back.

Now I can enjoy fully Roon 1.8, at least almost…:

The problem I have on a desktop (macmini M1 with Big Sur) and on my iPhone 12 as well is that clicking on a tag it always opens the first tag in the list. In this case it always opens TEMPO: Up.

If the track is added to one playlist it opens the correct playlist, with more than one playlist, the same issue happens too.

Mario, I fully agree. Something else bothers me: in the previous version you could see on the album listing if a song has other versions. This also disappeared with 1.8…

What about tags and favourites for iPhone? Still missing. I can’t even see my favourite ‘heart’ on the tracks! This is with the latest update 756. Nothing in settings to switch in on.

It’s there just hit the “circles” at the left of the heart icon.
The more circles, the more recordings.
Handy to spot the most covered songs on a given album.
