Library Song Limit

TaraLynn1

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

100% agree! Spotify should increase the Song limit! Or just remove the limit!

Agree too... it's stupid and it's a big problem... Need remove the limit! 😞

I am also very frustrated with the 10,000 song limit. I would be willing to pay for extra space. It would be great to offer this option.

I wouldn't agree with "paying more" for this.

Why should we?

It's just an established limit. Not a real/physical, "hard to solve", limit.

Is it too much of a stretch to classify this as low-key extortion?

I wish people would stop... 

There are so many options... use another service.  Spotify is far from the only game in town.  Talk with your wallet and they will eventually listen.  

 

But I will say from the time I first found this issue, until now, spotify has done nothing but grown as a service.  So there you go... this is not impacting them at the least.  

 

I went with Apple music and could not be happier.  Great service.

Stop what? Bringing these issues up?

 

I respectfully disagree. I think the more noise and the bigger the paper trail of issues/complaints makes it so they aren't able to attempt to backtrack or double-down by saying no one ever brought it up or it was only brought up once or twice.

 

I have already subscribed to [ANOTHER WORD FOR A RAINFOREST LOCATED IN SOUTH AMERICA] Prime Music and have been testing it with the various options (ie: audio bitrates), flexibility (ie: alexa/sonos devices) as well as portbility (although it's a bloated **bleep**, Spotify does provide a native Electron client for Linux desktops).

No... stop being so freaking dramatic when there are other services out there.  LOL

 

I think people should bring it up... and often.  

 

At the end, I don't think it will matter though.  And that is unfortunate.  I've been following this for years now.  That is sad.

Seems the best way is the old way. Buy a big mutha f*king harddrive/SD, store any music you want with no restrictions, no limits, be allowed to create playlists, shuffle your music and be happy 🙂

Or use Tidal, since migrating all my playlists have not come across the barriers I had with Spotify.

Tidal is slightly more expensive (and even more expensive if you want the audiophile package - which I'd be tempted by tbh)

 

Plus, my service provider has an entertainment pack that includes data-free streaming of music with either iheartradio, google play music or spotify (I think maybe apple music is included too, but that was a horrible experience)

 

If/when it becomes a part of the package I'd seriously consider it, but I don't want to pay more per month for a new service and then on top of that have to be cautious about my data as I listen a lot while on the road/travelling to and from work etc.

 

FWIW I did have a play around with Tidal and I really like the UI, but some of the songs I wanted to check out were missing so that's also a bit of a dampener

 

I love the irony of this thread - it's become a bit of a sharing experience of alternative streaming services between users who are disatisfied with spotify.  It would be like a bunch of people in line at the bank complaining and discussing alternatives (ratbher loudly) while the manager and staff are well within earshot, but their ignorance means they won't listen and simply ignore the probelm then wonder why in a few years time that all their customers are gone

I'd say it's more of a support group. We share our pain and feel slightly better when we realize we are not the only one with this problem.

I’ll bet that if Daniel Ek, the CEO of Spotify, knew about this, he’d have the library raised to 50,000 overnight.

I recently heard about a fairly new service that is strictly for classical music: IDAGIO.com. I tried it recently and it seems really good. The selection is quite ample, though not quite as broad as Spotify. For example, they didn’t have the labels that piazzolla recorded on primarily. But my test of less heard music included Geminiani, and they had many albums.

The best part: their limit is 30,000 tracks - triple what Spotify offers. The price is about the same.  I think that their highest quality stream may be better than spotify’s. All I need is a slight push to induce me to make the effort of selecting everything I have over again, e.g. another "Epic collection, friend..." notification.

 

Check out indagio.com if you are a classical music lover. Spotify: listen up!

I recently moved over the google music

But they have 1,000 song limit on playlists - that's enough for me to not use them

FWIW I have 9,000 song playlists on spotify and not being able to listen to that is just ridiculous

 

I tried apple music, but it doesn't cooperate with google chromecasts etc. so that's a straight nope from me

 

Spotify also has issues when shuffling to a chromecast/googlehome where it only shuffles within a 100 song section of a playlist (there's another thread on that on the forums, too - an issue that's been around at least 18 months and no fix)

 

I'm just fed up of different services all being inadequate. I'm going to try a few more and see which one is best, but so far spotify is definitely the lesser of three evils

I haven't used the library feature before, but this morning decided to add my physical CD collection to spotify, and hit that limit after 2h of working on that... this is ridiculous...

I agree, Apple Music increased its limit to 100,000 in 2015. It's laughable that spotify hasn't done so four years later. You said it best: Unlimited means unlimited.

Spotify get**bleep** together an remove this ridiculously low limit.
