Yeah must be. I mean, you see how much I update my phone? Lol I barely even use the apps I have as it is.

I agree. I sometimes add both entire albums and sometimes indiviual songs to my list, and then shuffle play all of them. Saving an album makeS it go they go into a separate list, and this makes shuffle play of all songs (albums and individual) impossible. Please add a button to add all songs of an album to my liked songs.

This is a terrible feature that fixes a problem that never existed and instead creates a new one. You're essentially saying that instead of users having one place to go to find all the music they've selected (Previously Saved Songs) Now they must remember whether they saved a song or an entire album? I don't even understand what the purpose of changing the interface to this is. As it was before, we could find everything in one giant playlist and then sort it according to Song Title, Artist, Album, Added Date, etc. That was the cleanest and simplest way to find a song. Now if I save an entire album but would like to shuffle all of my music, including this album, I must go back and like each song on the album individually? What a ridiculous idea.

I couldn't agree more. How I used Spotify 99% of the time was to shuffle all my downloaded songs. I'm supposed to "like" each song in every single album to be able to find them at one place now??? This is borderline useless!

Either bring back the downloaded songs, or automatically liking the songs that we downloaded.

As all your other customers are telling you.

 

You've killed Spotify in one quick update. Overnight the way that I interact and use your service was changed.

 

It's like you've stripped out most of my music library.

 

Don't tell me that I can access my old content in the "liked songs list". Noone wants to go from browsing album art to a giant list of text.

 

Please do the right thing and revert back to your previous system. Otherwise I & my family will have to look at migrating to a different service.

Hey all, I've been frustrated with this too so I came up with a fix:

 

Desktop:

 

Go to said artist's page, click on any song, press ctrl + a (sometimes you need to wait for it to properly select all songs), then right click and click 'Save to your liked songs'.

 

Now all the artist's songs will be saved to your 'Liked Songs', so you can just simply click 'Liked Songs', hit play and shuffle all them bad bwais.

 

This works for albums too, as in you can select separate albums and use the above method.

 

Android (probably iOS too):

 

There is an option to save an album, then find it in your saved albums,  click the options (...) at the top right hand corner of the screen and tap 'Like all songs'.

 

Admittedly, this requires more work vs the desktop application as there's no option to select all songs by the artist at once and saving them to 'Liked Songs', but an easy workaround is save most of the songs/albums via desktop or laptop before you venture out with your mobile device, which is a lot easier.

 

I still don't know why Spotify made this decision though, it was better before this update (psssh).

 

Let me know if this works!

I just saw that I have over 8,000 songs in my "liked" playlist, but I don't remember liking them all. I don't want to have them alll in there, but when I go to delete all of the songs from that playlist, it asks if I want to remove them from my library?

 

From what I've read, you can't "save" songs/albums anymore without "liking" them. Is that correct?

 

And if I choose to delete all of my "liked" songs from my library, will that mess up any of my playlists that I have created? I don't care if there are songs in my library or not, but I've spent a lot of time creating my playlists and I don't want those to be affected.
