I have reached the offline listening cap on my main phone and I will soon reach the limit for songs in my library overall. Considering I use this everyday and devote a good chunk of my time to curating my playlists, I would greatly like this reconsidered. I think of Spotify as an application I’ll use for life in terms of my music collection. Please reconsider looking into this issue that is so important to your most loyal customers. In general, I would also greatly like a sensible reason as to why this would not change if you decide to keep it that way. I am yet to see a reasonable answer on why this issue could not be fixed.

Same here, and just to add up to the conversation: I’m now considering moving to apple music (with 10 times more songs as limit) or even to YouTube Music because when I pay for a premium service I expect it to be for a long time, meaning that I’ll manage my music in this app for the rest of my life. I had chosen Spotify and been paying for years now, never gave Apple a chance because I’m sure I don’t want to be tied to Apple for life, but now...it’s definitely an alternative. 

 

Again, we find no reason to limit this and you’re just pushing away good clients. Please fix this soon or I’m going to another service. I understand that you may not care much because we’re only a few power users who get to the limit, but we think it’s just necessary and fair that we’re treated well. 

 

Thanks.

First they remove the running feature which was a fantastic value add, and literally a few weeks later I get the message that I have reached a song limit in my library. I had no idea this existed. Such a bummer. Not only this but by discovery weekly playlist is broken and support tells me it should fix on it own but it hasn’t.

 

 Seems like Spotify can barely hold on these days. Taking away features and failing to grow and evolve as a tech company should over the years. Wondering how much longer they will last. Sad because I really don’t want to go back to Apple but seems like a matter of time before it all falls apart for Spotify.

The thing that I find curious here is that they say that in your instant mixes you can save the songs so the IM can learn of your behavior. That means that although the song is not saved the IM still learn of that sort of "like"? In the web, the sing of "limit reached" does not appear so not sure if there is a limit there too.

This is seriously dissapointing to have a arbritrary cap. It seems to me that people with larger libraries are less likely to switch to your competitors, as swapping over a library is a lot of work. 

 

Why punish your biggest supporters? 

 

I was halfway through adding my music collection when I hit the cap. I guess I will look at Google Play or Apple as they can adequately fit my library. Come on Spotify, you are lagging.

I had this nasty surprise today, obviously this is still a thing and its total joke.The **bleep** am I paying for? Playlist solution works, but its like buttering bread with spoon... I prefer to have music categorized by artist or album and Spotify does very good job with that in Library. I guess this way I will end up with too many playlists in a while, also it splits music into two places. Cap should be really removed or at least increased several times. I am seriously thinking about closing premium and giving some other similar service a try until this is solved.

I also have to uncheck songs automatically saved to my Library when I simply like them from my Discover Weekly. Is that an intended UX feature?

 

This just adds insult to injury in a world where we're already capped at how many songs we can save to our Library.

I actually encountered the same issue a few months ago and moved to Apple Music, not because it is better, but because there is no capping... It is sad because I really loved Spotify's product and the suggestions and its library, but indeed, you guys are pushing away all your best customers just because you're too lazy to make a simple upgrade that your customers have been asking for years now.

 

I know and understand that all the libraries are considered as lists in your system, lists that are capped to 10k songs, but I work in IT as well, and I know that since you knew about this issue you could have came up with a lot of alternative as to how to manage libraries, and don't tell us it impossible or too complicated, all the other services do it without any trouble, you just need to stop messing around and get to work.

I agree. Unlimited should be unlimited. Surely users' libraries are assigned to an index as opposed to a table full of songs, albums, etc. If that is the case i just cannot understand what the rationale behind this limit is. I wouldn't expect that a large company such as Spotify stores data on old data warehouses either, and with cloud services such as AWS or Azure available today, I struggle to see why the limit is justified. As a paying customer I am now considering switching to other services that may not have this limitation. Could someone here from Spotify explain the reason for such a cap? And when this will change?

I agree. I'm totally bummed about this limit. I'm also a premium user and have been for a couple years. I have to constantly try and find albums I don't care if I don't have to add a new one. It's pretty disappointing. Serious music fans will easily hit the 10,000 song mark if they are a collector of both old and new music. 

Please reconsider removing this limit or atleast making it larger for premium users.

 

Thanks
