Long Press Menus on Album or Song no longer work

Long pressing albums or songs no longer brings up a menu. This means I have to rely on accurately hitting the triple elipses for most things, where if i miss it'll start playing that song. Or for albums i need to tap through to the album before being able to access the album dots to get menu, which is increasing number of taps, which is generally considered bad UX practise.

 

Hopefully this is just a bug and not a design decision.

 

Please bring back long press menus!

Why on earth do we need to have an "idea" to vote on to have an incredibly basic feature that was already on spotify. That is the most ridiculous pile of **bleep** I've ever heard. 

 

Edit: looks like peter here isn't very good at his job because this thread here explains it is an ongoing issue that is being looked into, the one he linked isn't helpful in the slightest. Also apparently c r a and p spell a bad word. I swear this place is run by toddlers sometimes.

Hey @datfenristho,

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

The Ongoing Issue thread that you linked to is related to the 'Add album to playlist' feature disappearing on Android. Although this feature used to appear in the three-dot menu, it is not related to the fact that the option to long-press to open the relevant menu was removed. We can confirm that the latter is expected behaviour, not an issue.

Hope that clears things up! Let us know if you have any further questions.

There are just 30 votes. Nobody comes here. Please move this feature back.

That's a different issue. This is related to getting a menu from a long tap

Are you **bleep**ing braindead? How is a feature that used to work not working anymore expected behaviour? Why was the feature removed in the first place? This is a standard as **bleep** use case and whoever decided to remove it was doing a bad job

Typical Spotify, 'stupefying' the Android app to further cause frustration.
