So guys I got this email from spotify this morning...
" Hey Zack,
Thanks for contacting us. We aim to provide a seamless overall experience, so when you have problems with how your app looks, we work double time to make sure it's sorted out quickly. Don't worry, we'll look into it.
We appreciate you sending over a screenshot of what you're seeing on your end. It's been a great help.
We're always testing things by adding or removing features to make Spotify better overall, and this is one of them. We're planning on changing the layout of Your Library on mobile, as well as the way content is saved to Your Library. And we're still in the middle of changing it for everyone, that's why not all users have it the way you do.
You're probably wondering where'd your saved songs go. Don't worry, your saved songs will now appear in a playlist called Favorite Songs. From now on, saving an album won’t automatically save the songs within that album, so be sure to save the songs you want to keep!
And from now on, Your Library should contain any artists that you follow. Saving an album or song won’t automatically save the artist, so be sure to follow them in the future!
Also, the saved Stations section has been removed from Your Library, but you can still start a Radio from any artist, album, or song. From there, Radios can be followed which’ll save them into your Playlists section. They’re now downloadable, too.
Thanks for the feedback, we really appreciate it. We're always aiming to improve our features so we hope you’ll continue to use it and find it gets better in the future.
If you have any other questions, don't be a stranger, we're just an email away 🙂
All the best,
I am not a fan on the new update, but will see if it stays because it seems more people are on my side with this. Maybe having an option of the two formats?
Same with mine. It's a really awful update. I liked going through the artists I downloaded and listening to the specific songs I had downloaded. Now you can't even do that. I'm hoping that they bring back the downloaded/saved artist library and not keep this new following artist library
At Spotify, possible improvements and new features are often being tested. This means you might see something on the app your friend doesn't, or get a brand new feature for only a temporary period.
Things tested could include the next generation of security protection, or new ways to listen. It's also a way for Spotify to introduce new features, and fine-tune the app to be compatible with specific devices.
