If you double click on a song in the Playlist view with the mouse it starts playing, but not if you use a touch screen.
It would be a nice enhancement for touch users if double tapping a song made it play, particularly because the inline play button for a song is not shown until it is selected.

Double tap is generally not a great UX on touch. I think single-tap enough should do it. That's *probably* what the user wanted.

But then how do you use the other buttons (remove, show details, ...) on touch screens? Currently they are only shown when tapping on a song once. One might want to use these buttons without playing that song.
On touch, we can make the hamburger button on the right side always appear.

Play song in playlist when tapped with a touchscreen
Double-click isn't a thing on touch; people expect things to react on a
single tap. Let's honor that assumption by making playlist items play
when tapped once with a tochscreen. To make the extra actions for
unselected songs more accessible, now playlist items' overflow menu
buttons are always visible.
