Do you recognize the feeling that music sounds better on radio than it does on CD, TV, Mobile etc.? One of the reasons for this is that radio stations speed up a song with 2,8%. In my opinion most of the songs I listen to sound better this way. I would be so happy if there was an (optinal) option to speed up a song with 2,8%.
I know it may sound silly but you should try it. You can try it using Audacity, when you're in Audacity open a song, than go to effects and click on 'change speed'. Than fill in 2,800 and click on OK. Audacity starts to speed up the song, this could take a couple of seconds. Than listen to the song, does it sound better in you're way?
I think it would be extremely nice to burn a playlist onto a CD. This would be a great idea for those who pay for Spotify Premium. If all this music is free and you can share it to anyone you want anyways then why not give the possibility of burning that playlist onto a cd. Good idea for those tht pay for premium anyways. SAY YES to a CD
I know that Spotify isn't yet able to be available worldwide. But at least the Spotify Premium should be!
I live in Brazil and I can't use Spotify Free. I and thousands of people here are interested in paying for Premium service. Why not accept our money? We have an international credit card, we can pay via PayPal!
Many people have to pay a friend who lives in the USA or UK via PayPal and this friend does the Premium subscription. That is, we can use Spotify Premium, but we have some friend living in any area of operation of Spotify. What is the difference in the end if we can use? The difference is that Spotify complicates the situation of those who are willing to pay.
Please accept international credit cards! We want to pay via PayPal without having a friend as an intermediary.
Spotify doesn't want to get my money? You are losing many signatures because of this. It's a great idea!
I use spotify almost daily as an Elementary music teacher to play musical examples, and let the kids listen to songs I have no want/need for in my personal collection.
Is it possible to create a way to turn on/off stricter filters? It could be an idea for parents with kids who use spotify, people who use it in a professional and people like me who can't have the word "ass" sneak on the my projected screen for any length of time while I'm searching for a song. 5th graders eyes are like hawks. Stricter filters on lyrics/song titles/cover art would make my work related spotify experience much more convenient and allow me to use my spotify on the fly every once in a while without worrying about half naked girls with hands all over them (Maroon 5 cover) popping up in front of my young students.
Some of the playlists I download can get pretty big. I love listening and getting lost in the music on the way to classes/work. When I finish my day I would love to have the player to have saved my place so i can kick off where I finished. I know this happenes if you dont close the app but in this day and age to have a battery which lasts you need to kill all running aps to get a better usage.
The media player is just a bit bland in general. Many improvements could be made.
Hey. I have a few ideas I want to let you know about. Very recently I switched from iTunes to Spotify Unlimited full time.
I would really like to have "Plays" as a sorting option (with that I mean, just like Artist, Track, Album etc. are right now). Compare with iTunes. And also that every play counts, not just the once in that specific playlist.
A page with some ingoing listening statistics implemented in Spotify, why go LastFm? I of course mean one's own listening, and not the general in like the States or whatever.
"Fast scrolling" in the Spotify app (iPhone) would be super! Once again, for example the iTunes app, where you can scroll through just the alphabet on the right side.
As people mentioned before, it's pretty annoying that one can add duplicates into a playlist without notification about it.
Maybe this is possible to do in some way already, but I haven't figured it out; I would like to be able to see the queue tracks in the iPhone app, and be able to change order and such.
Also, there is some kind of a bug with the queue (I think both on phone and computer, but I haven't exactly figured out when yet, but I think when closed down and then started again). However, it only plays the queue tracks and then stops. This one was a little fuzzy, sorry :)
That's all I can think of for now on. I like Spotify, and I am really glad I changed, although I really like iTunes.
P.S. The spell check wants to change "Spotify". Hilarious. D.S.
In all of the other boards, clicking on the 'comments' takes you to the first unread comment. In this board (Idea Exchange), the number of comments is after the description of the idea, but clicking on it takes you to the first comment. It would be nice if, like on all the other boards, it took you to the first unread (new) comment.
If there is a song that I have not heard in so many years I search by song name, artist, album or even all three. I get nothing theres alot of artists albums that don't exsist. For example, Aaliyah theres one album missing that came out in 2001 "Aaliyah"
or the new album from Rihanna "Unapologetic" the album has been out instores and itunes. Also other artists songs I would love to own on my playlist don't exsist in Spotify. I know there are over a billion songs and it is a bit challenging but its not like it can't be done! Other then that you're doing great Spotify.
I'm not the only one that whishes to sync non-local files to my iPod. I understand that Spotify can't just release all of their streaming music to even premium subscribers without negative consequences. Allowing full iPod syncing freedom would allow users to pay for one month, take all the music they desire, and then cancel their subscription with no consequences. This is piracy, and would certainly ruin the integrity and probably lead to the collapse of Spotify.
If Spotify were to allow non-local syncing, here's how it should be done:
Any non-local file synced to an iPod should have an expiration date of, say, 30 days. This way users would be forced to continue their monthly subscription in order to re-sync their playlists and keep songs active. If a user syncs 10,000 songs in one day and doesn't renew their subscription, the songs will expire and never be playable again.
The idea is simple enough, but I'm sure integrating this into song files and not counting days from the date on the iPod would take some finesse. This is where Spotify can help!
I would love to see this happen, and I don't think it's unreasonable to pay a subscription to receive full usage of the songs I stream from Spotify. Maybe this in addition to the ability to purchase songs outright would cover all the bases for Spotify. Eventually the price of renewing songs every month would catch up to itself and validate full purchase. Full purchase would simply wipe the date-stamp from synced songs.
I didn't see a place to suggest music that Spotify should have or try to get. I say that you should have the incredible sountracks to the Killzone games because you have nearly all of Hans Zimmer's other music. Thanks!
why are the original artists not always listed? there are so many covers by other artists but not the original or in other cases, the artist and song are not even listed (not a new artist or recent song either).
