Had Spotify premium for a week. Building library and less than 1/2 way through got the 'LIMIT" reached. Now have to spend many more hours deleting files so I can add more of favorite artists. Of course there's work arounds, all requiring more hours juggling library to stay within file limit. Looking at Apple Music. Their limit is 100,000?? duh!
I have seen the previous communication stating their lack of intent to increase this 10,000 song limit, and want to be another voice clamoring for it. Perhaps if enough of us that are frustrated with an otherwise great product express our opinions, Spotify will feel compelled to present a solution to this issue.
Just ran into this, absurd! Honestly I feel betrayed guys - I moved to Spotify a few years ago and with the changes that you've been making the past few years I've grown to love it, up until now! This makes me want to go back to a managed hard drive!
I've always considered the library a place to bookmark music you like, never thought there would be a hard limit on it. Feel ridiculous that I now have to go through and delete music through my virtual library!
**bleep**, if anyone in the Spotify office is reading this - I would totally throw you guys $5 a month extra for some sort of 'super user' non-library cap. I don't think I should have to do that, and I'd feel ripped off, but it's better than having to be forced to limit the library like this.
I think it's a software design problem for them. The classic design error that takes you for almost the whole life of the software and that becomes very difficult to correct because deep in the core of the system. I'm an IT Architect and I'll give you an example, Oracle which is one of the most important database vendors and yet up to version 12.2 the length of the name of a table or column was limited to 30 bytes, and only now it became 128 because it was used so deep in their code that they spent a lot of time to correct it. I hope it is not so and fortunately we are always free to choose who to give in our money
I just contacted the Amazon customer service and they told me that there are no limits in the number of songs that can be saved in the playlists. They have a free month to try the Unlimited version, I'll do a couple of tests. I'll keep you up-to-date. Of course, redoing all the playlists I've created is a tragedy
I just signed up yesterday after getting aggravated with Google Music's Android Auto support... Started putting in my music, hit the limit and I'm already back to Google. This is pure disregard for music loving customers, plain and simple.
