Since the new artist details page was introduced (with the white background) the behaviour of playback has changed. Previously if you double-clicked a song it would queue up all of the other songs by that artist. Now all it does is queue up that album (or single!). You can select all the songs manually and explicitly add them to the queue, but this isn't intuitive and doesn't support shuffle.
The only way I've been able to figure out how to listen to all songs by a particular artist is to create a playlist, and then add all that artists songs, which soon clutters up the sidebar!
Me and many others have bought inexpensive ARM based hardware for media center use. Sadly most Linux distributions for these platforms are built with hardware floating point calculation only, and the Spotify library for ARM is software only.
Would you be kind enough to compile an armhf version of libspotify for us? Based on the number of orders on the Raspberry Pi platform alone I would expect the potential number of Premium service users of this library to be 100.000+.
Please add release notes when Spotify for desktop is updated. How can we know which features are added, removed or fixed when Spotify tells us we need to restart? The iOS version provides release notes for each release, hopefully this can be added to the desktop version as well.

EDIT - Some clarity on this. When searching for an artist, you generally would select an album and hit play. When that album has finished, it moves onto the next album. This didn't use to be the case.
So the new spotify update has broken the play queue.
If I search for an artist and then play a track, it queues up everything after that from that artist (which spotify has always done). However now, if I use a blank playlist (right click and select 'choose as current playlist') in order to clear the play queue of all the songs I didn't manually queue up, spotify just automatically queues up more songs when the play queue reaches the end. This is NOT helpful. This is INFURIATING. I want the play queue to STOP playing when it gets to the end.

As the title says, in you newest big update, the Top title list has no more stars to put the tracks into our general selection, so we have now to look for them below and if the number of album is huge, it can take quite some time... So it would be better if you could put the little stars back into the top track list.
The limited number of supported Android handsets shown on the Spotify web pages is disappointing.
In addition, claiming to not support newer versions of Android, while still allowing it to show in the market is weak.
Many phones and tablets will be upgraded to Android 4 / ICS in the coming few months and your user base, many of which will be unable to stably use the mobile client, will be quick to complain and may start moving on.

For premium members create the spotify app for smart TV's and allow us to listen to music/ watch music videos wirelessly through our TV. There is currently a tunein radio app, and a Pandora app available for my TV. A spotify application would be amazing!

A new version of the Spotify iOS app (0.4.23) has just been released, giving 320kbps streaming quality amongst other improvements. Can you please realease a new version of the Spotify Android app which is functionally equivalent to the iOS app? We need playlist folders (which iOS has had for some time) and 320kbps streaming. Or is Android always going to play second fiddle to iOS in Spotify's world?
Update 2012-04-16: Spotify iOS app (0.4.24) has now been release, and still no update for Android!
New to the forums but not new to Spotify. Recently I was at my brothers house and he had his Roku fired up with Mog and I have to say it was awesome! I argued the Mog vs Spotify with him for about an hour and it was a stalemate however the Roku argument he won hands down. I have looked through the forums briefly and have onyl found a few larthargic ways to add Spotify to the Roku.
I have read on some user groups that Spotify has plans to build an app for the Roku but they don't have a date or time frame. Does Spotify have an official announcement to bring there service to the Roku? I would like to know, if not I am seriously considering a switch.
I use my Roku with Pandora (which I can't stand) and to be able to use my playlists via the Roku would be the kicker that I believe would put Spotify over Mog and best of all I can tell my brother to shup up.
Many albums that are released are meant to be gapless between songs. It's also something useful for concert recordings and other split music and media that is played through Spotify. This is a very common feature that is used by the best music programs.
Is anyone else interested in seeing this implemented soon?
My favorite thing about Spotify at the moment is being able to make your own radio station with songs in relation to a certain artist or certain song you like. When using the iPhone Spotify app you are able to thumbs up or thumbs down songs that play to improve the current radio station. It's great! Now could you just please add that feature to the computer? I'm fine going to my iphone to thumbs up and thumbs down tracks for the moment.. But that limits me to just using my headphones. At times I would like to use my computer speakers. Therefore I'd love to be able to manage my radio stations on the computer when I am using it as well.
Please bear in mind that the Community is not an official Spotify support service. It's a place where we all help each other, whether we work for Spotify or not. So please use your discretion when using the forum.
