This is a terrible idea.  The swipe down option is not fluid and painless.  Please bring back the widget or risk losing another premium subscriber.

I really need the widget back. Can't it be made optional to have the widget or not? I honestly can't understand why it would be taken away. 

 

I joined spotify hesitantly but was really impressed in the end but honestly I think not having a widget might make me think about not renewing my account and joining another streaming service. 

 

Please bring it back!!!!!  I dont want to have to recreate all my playlists on another app. (Sigh of disappointment)

i used this feature everyday. multiple times a day. ill give spotify a few days to come to their senses and put the widget back. otherwise ill move on to a different streaming service.

even apple music has a widget for android and apple is known for being simplistic without widgets

I don't get it, as both an user and a developer. It's completely pointless to remove a well used feature and give absolutely NOTHING in return. I can't start my playback from the notifications menu, not to mention it adds a new swipe to make it work, which makes the UX more labourous.

In my own user case, I have a custom launcher that launches whenever I connect to my car, where all my info is laid on the homescreen, in a neat and easy-to-use way, and the Spotify widget was almost a center piece to it. What is the Spotify Team gonna suggest me, use another app for this?

 

If so, consider ALL major and relevant competitors have widgets. If this feature doesn't come back, I'll highly consider going back to Google Music.

"To access the playback controls on Android simply swipe down while you are using Spotify to access the controls." Why am I only able to access the playback controls when I am using Spotify. What about when I am NOT using Spotify. Force me to open the app before I am able to start my music. wth?

This is quite possibly the most boneheaded decision you could make. What was the point of this? Bring back the widget noobs....
