This is possibly one of the stupidest decisions a company could make. Why would you remove something that made using your service easier. Bring the widget back! 


1. Install the Amazon App store (https://www.amazon.de/gp/mas/blp/install/ref=mas_rw_hw?campaign=DLP&channel=4&asin=&appVersion=stabl...)

2. It still has by now the old version available. Uninstall your current Spotify App

3. Reinstall via Amazon App store

4. Get your widget back. I just did it and it works.

 

Good luck and may the fore be with you

Why would you remove such an useful feature, it doesn't make sense! Ko

I'm reminded of n64 Bond, when one could aim and shoot the rocket launcher at their own feet. I'm still on a 3 mo trial with Spotify. Ironically, the missing widget space on my screen is directly below the Google Music widget which is still there. I have stored by own mp3s on Google music for years but decided to give Spotify a whirl because of supposed better accessibility. I guarantee I will be switching back to Google if this issue isn't resolved by the time my trial is up. What a horrible move. Android users use widgets!!! Hello!!!!

I've given this idea an upvote https://community.spotify.com/t5/Idea-Submissions/Android-Other-Maybe-a-widget/idi-p/4802378

 

If more people do, perhaps spotify will get there act together.

I moved away from iOS and Apple because I was tired of them dictating how I use and customise my device, apps etc. 

 

The widget for Android looked clean and actually worked well. Why are you removing it when people clearly like it?

 

You still haven't fixed issues like artists not showing when you've hit follow, random crashes, problems importing your own music if you use any sort of protection for your PC/mac at all but this was the problem you just had to rectify? 

 

What a joke.

So annoying that you've removed something that people regularly use without consulting us?! And no justification given at all. Do you value your customers at all?

As a Product Owner myself, I strive to add functionality to my application, never remove it. 

You're clearly making paying users upset with your inconsiderate upgrade. 

Please pass this message on to your DevTeam.

Almost not worth paying for premium anymore thanks to the inconvience caused. Gone from partially user friendly to almost useless. Good job.

Why. Why. Why. The widget was my main interface with Spotify on my phone. I want everything I use regularly available on my home screen. Hence a widget! Now I need to perform an extra action. And I can't access the full app as quickly as before. Stupid, stupid idea. Give me back my widget!!!
