LG G7 ThinQ
My Question or Issue
The issue is that followed artists don't load in the artists screen, depeding on connection. What I see is one of three things, based on my context:
1 - (on Wifi, but only sometimes?) The artists correctly load.
2 - (on data or on Wifi) The artists don't load. It shows me suggestions to follow artists that I'm already following.
3 - (offline) The artists don't load. It shows me a message to follow new artists.
Screenshots show my screen on wifi, data, and airplane.
The point of mobile for me is that I don't need to have wifi to listen. Before the update, this worked perfectly, including when completely offline. I know this is probably a feature, but since its a regression from the previous version, I feel that its a bug.
My experience has been pitiful since the major update that changed the way library works. The UX is objectively worse, since library used to work like every other library ever made, where 'artists' showed any artist for which you had a song in your library. Now it is a bespoke solution, unique to Spotify, that in my opinion, is not intuitive. I can't have part of an album and play that part. I have to manually save each album I want. I have to manually follow an artist I want, which isn't my intention. I don't want to follow them, I want to listen to their music, so now you've forced my hand into something I didn't want.
I could go on for days, but you've probably head them all by now.
If you're going to make the user experience worse, at least remove the bugs.
