It is rediculous how pathetic Spotify's response is. It shows they dont care about their users they just car about volume. I think i'll be moving to Google Play because of it. Yeah I'll miss out on a couple features but at least I can have all of my music in one place.
Why is Spotify so hostile toward users who actually want to use their library?
Exhibit A: This issue
Exhibit B: No way to access my saved albums/songs from artist page in the app
GPM doesn't work like this.
Also, FYI for Spotify community team, lying to us about the issue doesn't help, it just alienates us more. The idea that you can't vastly increase the limit without degrading the experience for everyone is patently ridiculous. It's a list of bookmarks.
Spotify's response is that "only 1% of users reach the 10,000 song limit."
1% of 70 million users is 700,000 people. That's seven hundred thousand of us who are experiencing cognitive dissonance on a daily basis as we try to reconcile our love for Spotify with our disdain for the non-sensical and punitive song limit.
I understand that there are costs associated with increasing the maximum song limit, costs that Apple, for instance, can more easily bear thanks to their enormous profits and mountains of cash. I am cognizant of the fact that the bottom line is important to this company, and being in a net loss position for the past few years is definitely one of the major sticking points for potential investors; the recent direct listing of Spotify shares will only compound investors' concerns.
But as the OP said: superusers should be rewarded, not punished. Fix. It. SVP.
I find it strange that a service that would want to keep you long term, would limit the number of songs you can save. This is very short-sighted. Spotify is no different than most of the tech companies these days. It is all about money and they don't give a **bleep** about the users.
