Spotify is a music-lover's must-have app for a multitude of reasons. Not only is it home to some of the best music, podcasts, and playlists, but it's also so easy to use. The app has debuted tons of great features that give users a seamless music-enjoying experience, and the latest launch just made that experience even better. Spotify released a new feature that lets users sort their "liked" songs by mood and genre, meaning you can now filter out songs that don't match your vibe. If the question of "Where has this been all my life?" also flashed through your head, then same.

Here's exactly how to sort your Spotify "liked" collection by mood and genre. First, you have to have at least 30 tracks in your "liked" collection. Once you have over 30 songs, go into your library and tap into where it says "Liked Songs." Then, tap one of the filters at the top of the playlist header to display all the tracks that fall under that mood or genre (you can swipe sideways on the horizontal list to see more). The app will populate moods and genres based on the songs you like, so your headers might be different than someone else's. Then, hop into the playlist and start listening! If your mood changes or you want to listen to a different genre, simply tap the "X" next to the genre or mood to disable the filter and you'll be returned to the "Liked Songs" library.

The next time you feel like listening to your favorite tunes without hearing both "WAP" and "Driver's License" back-to-back (such good songs, but such different vibes), all you have to do is tap into the playlist with the mood you're feeling and you'll be vibing in no time. Thanks, Spotify, for making mood swings more fun.
