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,

Jasley

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

If you download a previous APK file, are you sure it's an updated version?
I do not have auto update on and have not updated it or have received an
update

Hello @Grizzlybear2313 @Zc4

 

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.


However if you don't like the changes I’d suggest starting a new thread in the Community Ideas Exchange.

This’ll allow users, Stars, and Moderators to vote and comment on it.

Have a nice day!

I uninstalled and got an old apk from some site. Lost all my offline music.

 

This is the worst update ever. Makes me want to throw up
