Spotify seriously dropped the ball here and will be losing a lot of previously-generated goodwill from their loyal subscribers for telling them "too late" in regards to their 2016 stats. It can't possibly be too difficult to re-run the queries and re-send to anyone or make them available via their profile.
In an ideal world, we could run queries against our own stats at any time.
Hopefully a year in music is released becase this is pretty disappointing. Even if it's the same as last year which should already have a done template and wouldn't be too hard to do again.
Sending emails seems so counter intuitive, also If you didn't sign up you wont receive it, this isnt serious..
To be honest I think stats from your year in music should be available all the time but I'd understand if they wanted to make it special and make you wait for it every year.. this however ... wow.. "good one".
If Spotify fails to correct this for their subscribers then I'm cancelling. Obviously people really care about this feature and if Spotify doesn't care enough about us to do the right thing then they lost my support. If I do not get my stats by the end of December then I'm switching to Apple Music just out of prinicple since that would prove to me they really could care less about me as a customer.
