My Question or Issue

Why did you change the queue button on the bottom right of now playing screen into share button!? I'd rather have the ability to control my playlist easier than to share my music. Share button is useless! Bring back the queue button please, it's frustrating 😞

This please!

 

It's a completely arbitrary design that makes using a main/often used feature annoying. No one is using share so much it needs to be on the now playing view panel. Move share to the menu and put queue back on now playing view.

 

Hilariously, they tried something similar to this last year and ended up backtracking.

 

Edit: accidentally called now playing panel the playlist panel whoops. Fixed.

An absolutely ridiculous change. Who thought it would be a good idea to make it more inconvenient to choose and change the music I want?

Fine, keep the useless share button on there somewhere, if it makes you feel better. But BRING BACK THE QUEUE BUTTON, PLEASE.

Seriously why would you make it harder to get to our queue? Who on earth shares what they're listening to more than they access their queue? This is exactly why I never update the app anymore. No change spotify makes these days is ever an improvement, it's always a massive downgrade in functionality.

Developers! The f**k you doing? First, last year the song's search bar in playlists dissapears from the f****ng search bar, which mean that now we have to do a 4 step process to search a song in any playlist. Now you do the same $h!7 for the queue?

Why? No, seriously, why? Was it so hard to put the share bottom NEXT to the queue? 

 

Do the developers even use spotify on mobile devices?

I would really like to know what was the thought process behind this decision. Surely they are just moving things around to justify some development funding that they would otherwise lose. Couldn't come up with anything useful so they create problems for themselves to fix.

 

Whatever the reason is - this was a garbage decision. GARBAGE.

 

What were they thinking?!

Okay, I just registered to post on here...

 

Like seriously, this must be some bad joke, right?

I'm using the queue multiple times a day to rearrange stuff or delete songs, that I'm not in the mood for. Sharing is used maybe once a week?!

 

I "survived" multiple bad changes in the past but Spotify crossed a line here!

This needs to be reverted immediately, like NOW!!

Now they remove one of the most heavily used buttons on the platform and replaced it with one that no one cares about. A single focus group exercise would've shown this was going to be an unpopular idea. They obviously want us to use the share button more to promote the Spotify platform and don't mind irritating their customers in the process. Please listen to the community Spotify, no one wanted or asked for this.
