well that was as stupid idea there seems to be zero justification for removing this i have hd spotify widget since the start, but yoiu know why fine i dont really need premium, or the app in general now I have youtube premium and since im now paying for less accessability it makes more sense to cancel the subscription, this is a stupid idea and judging from teh comments EVERYONE thinks so. its not often you see a company shoot itself in the foot like this.
This answer is straight garbage. That widget was the best thing about your music app. I'm cancelling my premium service because you just made all of our quality of life that much harder. For literally NO FREAKING REASON other than some BS nonsense. not to mention, maybe a warning this is happening before everyone just wakes up to their phone being changed without them knowing! F you spotify, you have lost a 7 year subscriber over this.
The stupidest and worst decision ever. Why would you do that. It was the best feature. Thanks for being stupid Spotify. I've been a paying customer for a while now and this is the worst thing you've done. It's the most accessable feature on the whole of Google/Android platform. It's driver friendly too. I'm not going to fiddle with my phone and notification bar while I'm trying to change a song while I'm driving. I think you guys want us to DIE while driving and listening to our fave music. **bleep**, u guess that's how you treat your customers.
Bring back the widget! It is so simple to use, 1 tap on the home screen and I'm done. I don't want to have to open my notifications bar or the app when I want to change a song. This is one of the most stupid updates I've heard you guys do. Instead of improving your service, you made it worst!
Yet another unhappy android user here. Please put the widget back. The amount I've paid in Premium fees over the many, many years we've used Spotify is certainly enough to cover the cost of widget upkeep and still pay the artists fractions of pennies for their work. Removing a feature isn't in line with the mission expressed in this answer. I'm hoping your team sees the amount of dissatisfaction about this change and makes a better choice. Spotify just doesn't provide features that other music streaming services can't match anymore, and all my other streaming widgets are still there.
This is idiotic, every single "update" is making the app worse. First you remove the extremely handy search feature while in a playlist and now the widget? I used both on a daily basis and now I must use a tiny square to handle my app?
You've gone from having a easy to reach search funtion to having to click 3 extra times for the same thing. And the widget was perfect on my homescreen and had everything I needed without having to open up the app itself and now its just gone? With nothing to replace it? I don't have words for how idiotic this is.
