Why isn't there an option to just repeat a track? I hate having to place a song in a playlist of its own, and then put it on repeat which just repeats the playlist. People have been suggesting you add this feature for years now! EVERY music app should have this feature! This feature should be on all the Spotify apps across all platforms.
Add it to the same button as now with a 3-step repeat mode:
1. Repeat ALL/PLAYLIST 2. Repeat TRACK
3. Repeat OFF
This idea is also "Under Consideration" on GetSatisfaction.
My mockup of what this would look like in the iPad app (similar for desktop and other mobile devices):
If Spotify wants to compete with Rdio, they need to add this feature! They could limit the function to unlimited and premium users if that's the current worry limiting the release of this feature. Rdio is PAY ONLY, and Spotify has a FREE option.
It worries me that Spotify hasn't implemented this popular simple idea from 4 years ago, but instead they implement more complex newer ideas.
If you ask some people -- this has been a request since the launch of Spotify.
I love Spotify, but it hurts that a simple feature like this gets passed up every time new features are rolled out.
I feel like I'm living in the 1990s with no repeat track mode anywhere to be found within Spotify.
This is a basic feature and it's being looked at like a grain of salt.
I comb through Twitter search every day and a lot of people are very confused on how the repeat mode works so I link them to this idea.
I've referred 50+ people now to the link... some didn't know that it only repeated the playlist.
This is very confusing for a lot of people, especially newcomers.
Remember... this has been a request dating back to 2009 and even to the launch of Spotify is some cases.
