Library Song Limit

Spotify staff-

 

I recently reached the 10,000 song limit in my library, which is a great disappointment.  As a loyal customer for over 3 years, I have thoroughly enjoyed your product, so much that I have shifted to using it as my main source of music collection.  There must be some way that you can enable "super users" to continue to file and organize their music over this arbitrary limit.  

 

There may not be many of us, but (and this should be obvious) those of us that actually reach this limit are your core constituents.  We are passionate about music and your product, and I can tell you that I have gotten at least 20 people to sign up to Spotify Premium over the past couple of years as I have raved about it.  I will continue to do so, with the caveat that Spotify just isn't yet ready to become a full-fledged music library of record for musical aficianados, much to my disappointment.

 

One more thought: You may find interest in the creation of some type of super user account that would allow you to charge SLIGHTLY more for those of us who desire or require a higher song limit (say, unlimited...) without having to alter the accounts of your millions of users.  Bottom line is that unlimited should mean unlimited, especially in this age of big data, but a 10,000 song cap with no alternative is absurd.

 

Thanks

This f'ing sucks! My iPod holds 3x songs than Spotify's library limit. Why have a limit at all? How does that even affect Spotify? You're not downloading or owning the music, they are just bookmarks and you are still just streaming through a PAID service! Fix it now Spotify! 21st Century! ESTO SACKEA LA DICKA!

I've been dealing with this problem for years at this point. Systematically having to sift through my library and root out songs that I don't like as much, just so I can have room for new songs that I come across that I like, which soon fills back up because I like to listen to new music. It's ridiculous that the cap hasn't increased even a little bit for the years I've been dealing with this problem. I've been a paid member with spotify since I discovered them some 5 or 6 years ago. Seriously have considered opening a separate account and closing this one just so I can start over clean and not worry about the cap anymore.

I actualy don't care about the library itself I just want a way to flag my songs so I can find them later. I would prefer a rating system of 5 stars to further filter but there is no way to do this. So i use the like inorder to accomplish this but just ran into an issue where i could not like anymore songs. Which seems arbitrary why are you limiting your most important user data point what songs they like and want to listen to.

Do the other streaming platforms that have higher or unlimited song limits (Apple Music, Amazon Music, Tidal, etc.) have the crossfade feature? This is a key reason I haven’t switched from Spotify - yet.

I never heard about that feature.... but a quick google search states Apple music has it.  Google "crossfade feature" and add the service you want to search.  Searching for Apple music would be "crossfade feature Apple music".  Simple enough...

The limit really needs to be increased. I can understand that there should be a limit on the number of songs that should be downloaded, however, I am referring to simply the ability to add songs/albums without downloading them.  I would like to be able to document the song/albums that I would like to return to, and the library is the only way to do it. This limitation really prevents users from exploring new music once their library is full. From a technical perspective, I cannot imagine there being any significant cost to spotify to change this. What is preventing this from a technical and/or business perspective?

I have also hit hte limit. It's the only music library software I have ever used that limits the amount of music you can have in your own library. It's actually really absurd and depressing. Apple doesn't have this problem. Google doesn't have this problem. It's ridiculous.

Yeah, I don't pay this company monthly to have an un-advertised limit. It makes no sense, they are esesntially bookmarks and help analytics for the automated daily playlists and such to play good music for me depening on my mood, etc. 

Limiting the amount of data I can give it is asinine. Not to mention the inconvenience that now I can't discover new music and am penalized if I want to try to. They need to fix this.

Ever since I hit the song limit, my use has gone dramatically down. What I
loved about Spotify the most, was precisely that it enabled me to browse,
discovering new, related music and save it for the future (also to built on
that library). It's a bit sad this asset isn't there anymore. I wished they
had mentioned the Limit from the start. I might have organized the music
differently etc. Which would have helped a little bit. But I don't have the
time to do that retroactively. I also don't really understand why it would
eat up too much of their server storage to save out 'likes'.

I am a long time Google Music subscriber and was considering switching over to Spotify. I'm less than two weeks into my trial and was pretty sold on switching, so I started copying my playlists over and adding to my library. I've already reached the 10,000 limit! This is a dealbreaker.

I posted a few weeks ago about discovering this limit with my trial of Spotify. I was disappointed, but really was ready to move to Spotify in my head, so thought maybe I could make it work (using playlists w/o adding to library, for example). Over my few weeks on a trial, I've realized it's not really workable without being a PITA. So I'll just stick with my current provider and cancel Spotify before being charged.

@eldsjal With Amazon’s announcement yesterday, it’s now critical to raise the 10,000 songs limit in Your Library. The message boards are filled with posts from Spotify subscribers begging for this! I’ll bet Daniel Ek isn’t even aware this is such a huge issue.

You are kidding yourself if you think this is a huge issue.  You must not have read Spotify's answer to this very issue a couple of years ago (really, YEARS ago!).  Maybe huge for you and a couple of more people, but not to spotify.   Matter of fact, their reply, as read below, really says "get off our platform, hogging up our resources.  Glad to see you go!"  

 

Here was their offcial reply:

 

Hey folks, we're back to give this idea a bit of an update. 

As we've previously said, less than 1% of users are reaching this Your Music limit. The current limit ensures a great experience for 99% of users instead of an "OK" experience for 100%. 

 

We've kept a close eye on your feedback though and we agree if a solution for this could be met it would be beneficial for everyone. While this isn't in our current timeline we're changing this to "Good Idea" and we'll update you if we have any info. Thanks!

Ok, so I've hit this limit. How can I easaly convert this huge list of songs into some libarries? I think I can export via csv in the web version perhaps?

If anyone has some tips....

Oh no...
you cant export via csv (at least not with tools that spotify provides you.)

you can make your playlist public and shared
than follow your playlist/account

Is a fab tool for importing, exporting and keeping in sync multiple services. Helped my migration away from the 10K song limit. Now with Tidal... Good move.

I can't seem to get logged in so I'm using this reply to make a statement.
however. You all need to give it up. Move on to Apple or Amazon.
Actually, I like Amazon. As for as this issue, they said in 2014 they were
looking at it. I suppose we know the outcome. I got off Spotify 2 years
ago. You all need to do the same. Please post this if you really want to
accomplish anything. Spotify is ignoring you. Just quit. If enough subs
drop it, they will increase it.
