Spotify needs to return the app to allowing artist sorting alphabetically. No, I'm not going to "follow" artists so they can be added to a playlist where I can then choose to sort alphabetically. When I click on the Artist tab, they should automatically come up sorted alphabetically. At the very least, it should be an option in the settings menu.
Spotify has implemented some idiotic app changes but this one really takes the cake. It's time I start looking into Tidal.
Keep trying to make a rounder wheel - it's going to have Tidal/Apple/Amazon leaving you in the dust.
I don't see anything about returning artist- sorting to alphabetical order among your proposed suggestions, which is kind of the whole point of this thread. Include that feature and I'd definitely vote "yes."
To everyone else,
I recently switched to Tidal and have been much happier. It connects to my Chromecast Audio with much fewer dropouts, and for only a few more $ a month, I get far superior sound quality from their Hi-Fi tier.
And if you're a veteran (as I am), you can get their Hi-Fi service for about the same price as Spotify Premium. I haven't figured out how to go about that yet because it would only give me the option of paying $19.99, despite verifyng my veteran status through their website, however, I'm sure a call to their customer support can fix it.
In all fairness, I now must find all the artists I had saved in Spotify and add them to my Tidal library, but that's really no more work than what I was being forced to do with the recent Spotify update.
Goodbye Spotify, it was good, until it wasn't. Thank you capitalism!
I know know I said Amazon in my post, but I am in the process of swtiching to Tidal as well. The Hi-Fi is great and even though I am not a veteran I think it’s worth it. I tried it before Spotify and at the time ultimately picked Spotify because at the time (3 years ago) it was a great app. Now it seems like the devs want you to only listen to Playlists...
My bad, I guess I didn't see where you mentioned that. Yes, they should make it so the subscriber has the choice. One would think that's the common-sense approach anyhow.
Regarding playlists, that's another area where I prefer Tidal, including their "stations" based on a liked artist. They seem to be of wider variety than are Spotify's - which seem to be the same 3 or 4 artists for a given "station."
