Not really an improvement when you remove the widget most of your customers use on a daily base including myself. Did this idea come into someone's head in the middle of a circle **bleep** or am I missing something?

The only thing I use for Spotify is the widget. Unless I feel like downloading new music. Without I have no interest. I'll give it til the end of the month then I'm cancelling my sub.

Genius. So I had it on my main screen, now I need to open the app if I clear all notifications. Great job Spotify, expected more from you.

 


At Spotify, we’re often testing and launching improvements and new features. 


Oh yeah, like removing the best feature of Spotify which was syncrhonizing music to BPM for running. And what were your last great "new features" please remind me? The shi**y codes which you can show someone to follow you. Oh great! What's next? More ways of reacting to music, like hearts, angry faces etc.?

You overthink this and go wrong way, not making the music experience better but making the app more investors friendly by showing new, not worthy anything features.

I don't have any permissions enabled and Spotify seems to work fine.

This is an insultingly condescending response @Guido, and does nothing to address or resolve the issue at hand.

Got it back using the Amazon app store method. Brilliant.

 

Spotify, you really dropped the ball today.

 

Give back our widgets.

I did a quick calculation of widget use vs having to go INTO the app. The upshot is that I unsubscribed from Premium and subscribed to Google Play Music in just under one day's worth of clicks, swipes and curses!


In the old days, I'd have to travel across the city to another music store. Today, 20-something clicks and 5 minutes of my time and I'm sorted!

If Spotify don't want the widget, they are perfectly within their rights to remove it.  Loyalty works both ways...

 

I think 'feet' will speak louder than posts!

This is a horrible decision. Please return our widget back! Also, what's up with silently removing stuff with no reason given? I didn't notice this in changelog (which I read before any update!!!).

Looks like I'll be moving to Stitcher. Man, Spotify and I had a really good run but getting rid of the widget is a major deal breaker when Stitcher has so many better perks anyways.
