[Android] Home page of Spotify turned into vertical view on Android

Hey folks,

 

We've received reports that the Home Screen on the app where tabs like "Jump back in" "More Like", "Popular new release", "Recommended for you", etc which can be scrolled sideways (horizontal) are now displayed vertically on Android devices. This is being investigated.

 

Cheers!

Urgh, it's changed again! Obviously they are meddling with it so why not just put it back to how it was?! They have put the text at the side. I just want the sideways scroll back!

Lol.. Luckily this spotify account of mine was a cheap one month prepaid premium account ..i just created a new account and got another one month cheap prepaid plan again..now I see, there was a pop up about adding new features and be the first one to experience..so if it's a test , you guys should have let us known , few of the guys have been scrolling here since one week..and also too add - there was an update for Andriod web viewer from play store which took down my chrome as well.. At one instant I thought that the error in spotify had to do something with that..

The issue just started this week for me. I have tried logging out and reinstalling, no changes. If this actually is some new feature test, for what it's worth I think it is a terrible change. I went from using the Home page all the time to not at all.

Which streaming service is closest to Spotify in being user friendly? I can't put up with this bill of a home screen any longer

 I want suggested music, recently played, and my podcasts back in a linear and horizontally ordered manner. This one way scroll is absolutely atrocious and I'm going to be considering taking my money elsewhere. I assume the developers at Spotify just don't care about the consumer at this point. Utterly awful.

A subsequent clean reinstall with both my telephone and pc made a difference! I suppose one needs to sign into the record firat on the gadget, and afterward on the PC. It feels so incredible to have an appropriately working mainscreen once more!

The same problem! Turn back a normal home screen!
I don’t pay money to be tested on me. If you want to test any functionality, warn users about this in UI of the app, and let them return to old. (Do you seriously think that displaying playlists like this might be a good solution? Are you okay?)
I tryed delete and reinstall app, the same.
I tried to switch to a different account - and this problem went away as soon as I go back to my account - that horrible home screen comes back.

Hey @EkaterinaAn,

Thanks for reaching out on the Community!
 

We have let the folks in the developer teams know.


While we wait for updates, we recommend installing the most recent version of the Spotify app for all the latest updates and fixes. If your app is already up-to-date, you can try to log in and log out two times in a row, as this resets the app and forces it to resynchronize with your account.

Hope this helps. Let us know how you get on.

It's unbelievable that this is still an issue. 

 

This layout has been in testing for months now, when it should take no more than 20 seconds to realise it's terrible.

 

The old layout was able to display much more information - every Friday I was able to open Spotify and scroll through my "new releases for you" section. Now I see one result at a time and it occasionally changes after a while. 

 

This is unacceptable.
